Fox News chief intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge reported that the Defense Department’s Africa Command (AFRICOM) sent a targeting memo early on September 14, 2012 naming four individuals with direct connections to al Qaeda’s affiliate in North Africa and seven connected with Ansar al-Sharia as suspects in the Benghazi terror attack.
