Why did it take nearly two years to track down the alleged leader of the 2012 Benghazi attacks when multiple journalists had contact with him prior to his capture?

CNN’s Senior International Reporter Arwa Damon met Ahmed Abu Khattala nearly a year ago in a public hotel coffee shop to talk about the Benghazi attacks. Damon described Khattala as “very confident” that he was not being tracked down by American forces despite the fact that he knew the United States considered him a “person of interest.”

“This is not a man who was in hiding,” Damon told CNN in an interview. “I was the first television correspondent to speak to him, but he had spoken to one or two other print outlets beforehand. He did not feel the need to secure himself other than with this small unit of Libyan forces.”
