The U.S. military may have had plans to seize two high-profile al Qaeda targets, including the militia leader behind the attacks on the U.S. consulate that killed four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens in Benghazi, but it didn't happen.
The raid in Tripoli that captured Abu Anas al Libi was supposed to remain secret for several days and now, a prime suspect, Ahmed Abu Khattala, may have gone into hiding.

The U.S. launched two high-stakes raids this weekend on major terror suspects in Africa.
The first took place in Somalia, where the Navy's SEAL Team Six was forced to abandon its mission after becoming involved in a fire fight while trying to capture the leader of al Qaeda-linked Al-Shabaab.
The second – executed in Libya, where an Army Delta force ambushed and captured an al Qaeda operative wanted in the 1998 bombings of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania that killed 224 people.

A car bomb exploded outside a Foreign Ministry building in the Libyan city of Benghazi Wednesday, state media said, on the anniversary of an assault on the U.S. Consulate there that killed four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens.
The blast did not cause any casualties but blew away large parts of the building's facade, said Col. Abdullah Al Zaydi, spokesman for the Joint Security Task Force in Benghazi, according to Libya's state news agency, LANA.
The blast comes on the anniversary of the attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, CNN’s Erin Burnett looked back at the night that took the lives of four Americans including Ambassador Chris Stevens in a CNN documentary, "The Truth About Benghazi".

Expert: U.S. underestimated the threat
Nearly a year after the attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, CNN’s Erin Burnett looks back at the night that took the lives of four Americans including Ambassador Chris Stevens. With special reports from CNN senior international correspondent Arwa Damon and chief national correspondent John King, Burnett revisits the night of the attack, the U.S. military response, the latest on the investigation, and the political firestorm in Washington D.C.
In the special, Arwa Damon returns to Benghazi and interviews one of the suspects in the attack – Ahmed Abu Khattala – who has yet to be interviewed by the U.S. government. Damon’s reporting has caused outrage among many GOP lawmakers who asked in a letter sent to FBI Director James Comey "How come the FBI isn't doing this and yet CNN is?"
In addition to Damon’s interview, Burnett speaks to the families of Tyrone Woods, Glen Doherty, Sean Smith and Ambassador Stevens.
