After 15 years on the run, U.S. Special Forces managed to nab one of the men believed to be involved in the 1998 U.S. embassy bombings in Nairobi, Kenya and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Abu Anas al Libi was captured in the Libyan capital of Tripoli as he left his home for morning prayers Saturday. One former jihadist with knowledge of the operation and claims to have worked in the same terror cell as al Libi described what happened. "I think about maybe 10 people - masked 10 people - with three cars, I believe, you know they were waiting for him, and they just snatched him within like a few seconds," Norman Benotman said. "Then, they just disappeared, and they left no evidence as if nothing happened there. Now that the U.S. has al Libi in custody, sources says his next stop will be New York City, where he's expected to stand trial.
