House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) reacted Tuesday to President Barack Obama’s announcement that U.S. forces have apprehended Ahmed Abu Khatallah, a suspect in the Benghazi attacks of 2012 that killed four Americans.

“It is obviously good news that this terrorist is now in American custody, and I am grateful for the work of our military — assisted by the FBI — in capturing him,” Boehner said. “I look forward to hearing more details regarding the raid, and I expect the administration to give our military professionals time to properly gather any useful intelligence he has.”
