    The identity and motivation of the assailants have become an intense point of contention in the American presidential campaign. Republicans have sought to tie the attack to Al Qaeda to counter President Obama’s assertion that by killing Osama bin Laden and other leaders his administration had crippled the group; Mr. Abu Khattala and Ansar al-Shariah share Al Qaeda’s puritanism and militancy, but operate independently and focus only on Libya rather than on a global jihad against the West.

    Libyan authorities name Islamist group leader in Benghazi embassy attack

    Authorities in Libya have named a leader of a Benghazi-based Islamist group as the commander in the attack that killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans last month, the New York Times reports.
    Libyans involved in the investigation say Ahmed Abu Khattala was seen by witnesses as leading the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi. Abu Khattala is the leader of the Ansar al-Shariah, a militant group that wants to advance Islamic law in Libya, according to the the Times.
    His exact involvement is still unclear as his group is fractionalized, and there may be more than one leader.
