Exclusive: Benghazi suspect spoke to CNN last year

The U.S. is interrogating the alleged mastermind of the 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.

Ahmed Abu Khatallah, a man seen on OutFront last year, was captured over the weekend. Officials say this included luring him to a location to minimize others getting injured and that no shots were fired during the operation. He'll be taken to the U.S. within days.

President Obama says he will face the full weight of the U.S. justice system for the attack that left four Americans dead.

We first told you about Abu Khattallah in our OutFront documentary, The Truth About Benghazi, last year. It contained his only recorded interview with any television network in the world.

Arwa Damon is the reporter who spoke to him in that interview and is OutFront tonight with this exclusive report.
