Washington (CNN) — Four U.S. military personnel are being held by the Libyan government, a senior U.S. Defense Department official told CNN on Friday.
The four are believed to be held by the ministry of the interior, the official, with knowledge of the situation, said on condition of anonymity.
It was not immediately known why the American personnel were in Libyan custody. “We are seeking to further ascertain the facts and ensure their release,” the official said.
Some Libyan jihadi thugs needs some spare cash. They know that the version of Pajamaboy currently in the White House has no balls, so extortion is probably the order of the day.
