Gen. Carter Ham: Members of al Qaida group among Benghazi attackers

The attackers who killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans in Benghazi, Libya, represented a variety of Islamist groups and were motivated by a myriad of factors, the top Libyan official investigating the case has told McClatchy. They almost certainly included members of al Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb, which the French now are confronting in northern Mali, said Army Gen. Carter Ham, the head of the U.S. military’s Africa Command.
