Abu Anas al-Libi, who was seized by United States special forces, is being interrogated aboard a Navy ship in the Mediterranean. He is wanted in connection with the 1998 U.S. embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania that killed 224 people.
His next stop is likely a criminal court in New York, which is causing a lot of outrage here in the U.S.
Senator Kelly Ayotte is a leading voice against trying al Libi in a criminal court.
"He should go to Guantanamo so we can have a lengthy interrogation," Ayotte said Tuesday on Erin Burnett OutFront.
Ayotte supports keeping Gitmo open for high-level detainees. She questioned why al Libi is being held at sea.
"Ships are not a permanent place where we detain people â€“ he needs to go to Guantanamo."
