Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement on the capture of Ahmed Abu Khatallah:

“The capture of Ahmed Abu Khatallah should stand as a stern reminder to all those who would harm Americans: no matter how far you run, or how deep you hide, you will face justice. 

“The success of this operation is a tribute to the incredible dedication of our military, law enforcement and intelligence personnel.  I commend President Obama for his resolute leadership in tracking down the perpetrators of the Benghazi attacks.

“Today, we hold the families of Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods, Glen Doherty and Ambassador Chris Stevens in our hearts.  With Abu Khatallah in custody, we must continue to strengthen the safety and security of our men and women serving across the globe.”
