This grainy footage is from last October in Tripoli, Libya and shows the capture of Nazih Abdul-Hamed al-Ruqai, an alleged terrorist and close associate with Osama Bin Laden.
Watch as two cars roll up on Ruqai and corner him before jumping out with guns drawn. American Special Operations forces grabbed Ruqai from his car, took him to a Libyan military base and then transported him to an American warship waiting off the coast of the Mediterranean Sea. The arrest was the end of a 13-year hunt and was carried out by the CIA, the FBI and the U.S. Army's elite Delta Force.
This security video was unearthed by The Washington Post's Adam Goldman. According to Goldman's story, Ruqai is alleged to have played a roll in the African embassy bombings in 1998, which resulted in more than 200 deaths.
It's incredible how well the kidnapping was pulled off. This is the kind of stuff you're used to seeing in action movies or on "Homeland." When it's the real deal, it is way more badass.
