  1. U.S. Defends Arrest that Libya Calls a Kidnapping

    Secretary of State John Kerry defended a secret mission inside the North African nation to capture a high-level al Qaida operative over the weekend. Anas al-Liby has been on the American Most Wanted list for more than a decade, but Liby’s brother called the arrest in Tripoli an act of piracy. Libya’s Prime Minister also suggested the case could be considered “kidnapping,” and not an arrest. While Liby has been linked to the 1998 U.S. embassy bombings in Africa, the last thing the U.S. needs is controversy inside any Arab spring nation.
