Obama could say 'I told you so' on Benghazi

The capture of a suspected leader of the deadly Sept. 11, 2012, attack on a U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya, could give a boost to President Barack Obama. But maybe not for long.

The operation that resulted in Ahmed Abu Khattala’s detention could give Obama a bump in his approval rating, much like the raid that killed Osama bin Laden in May 2011 did, but any political gains could be short-lived, according to this Washington Post piece.
