AQIM Led Strike On U.S. In Libya
WASHINGTON [MENL] -- Al Qaida's network in North Africa was believed to have
played a role in the attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya.
Officials said the U.S. intelligence community has assessed that Al
Qaida Organization in the Islamic Maghreb was involved in the attack
on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11. They said AQIM deemed the
consulate a strategic target in stopping the U.S.-led counter-insurgency
campaign in the region.
