Al Qaeda’s expansion in Libya, following the successful terrorist attack on the  U.S. consulate and CIA annex in Benghazi on Sept. 11, is part of a long-term  plan by Al Qaeda senior leadership, according to a seasoned counterterrorism  investigator.


“Al Qaeda’s leader Ayman al-Zawahiri has long had his  sights on Libya, and what he devised long ago was a plan to send senior  operatives from Pakistan and elsewhere into Libya to build up Al Qaeda’s  clandestine network,” Tom Joscelyn, a senior fellow with Foundation for Defense  of Democracies, told Fox News.
Joscelyn, who is well known in the  counterterrorism world for his “drill-down” on Al Qaeda operatives, said the  vacuum left after the attack in Benghazi has created another opening which has  allowed the terrorist network to “capitalize on the anti-American momentum and  to show how they do have cards to play around the world.”
According to  an August report by the Library of Congress in conjunction with military  analysts, at least two Al Qaeda operatives —  Abu Anas al Libi and Abd al  Baset Azzouz — answer directly to  Zawahiri.
Joscelyn said a  “witches’ brew” of three basic elements now creates fertile ground in Libya for  the establishment of a safe haven. They include those dispatched by Al Qaeda  senior leadership in Pakistan; the Al Qaeda affiliate in North Africa known as  Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb; and local militias which are sympathetic to Al  Qaeda and led by former Guantanamo detainee Abu Sufian Ben Qumu.
