Alleged al Qaeda operative Al Libi taken to New York week after capture in Libya

By Evan Perez and Susan Candiotti

The United States has brought Abu Anas al Libi - an alleged al Qaeda operative whom U.S. Army Delta Force soldiers captured in Libya this month - to New York, a U.S. attorney's office said Monday.

He was transferred to law enforcement custody over the weekend, the office of Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said.

Al Libi is expected to appear before a judicial officer on Tuesday, the office said.

      What I want to know is whether this Abu Anas al-Libi was tortured while he was of that ship in order to get him to sign a false confession or not. Let's all hope the latter is true, Phunnie boy. The torture of political prisoners is truly a terrible blight on this country's honor!!!

        Funny I see it as weakness to not do what ever needed to keep the US safe. I hope while they had him in international water they got every drop of intel from this rat.
