(Newser) – A Libyan man suspected of taking part in the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi has died during a raid by Egyptian security forces, reports Reuters. Karim Ahmed Essam el-Azizi was killed by a bomb he was trying to use against the forces. Four others were detained in the raid, which targeted el-Azizi and others suspected to have links to al-Qaeda. It's unclear what role he played in the September 11 attack in Benghazi, but security forces said they found bombs and weapons at an apartment he had been renting in Cairo's Nasr City.

Team Obama doesn't know yet who did it, but the Egyptians know they killed who did it, so everybody can stop looking for the US Ambassador killers? .... HOW does anybody know what the hell our US Intelligence Agencies do, if other governments kill the terrorists we're looking for, and we still don't even know who we're looking for, and they're dead...... The unsolvable mystery, of the mysterious unsolvable Obama Team.
