During a Pittsburgh town-hall-style meeting Tuesday, President Obama stated that the capture of Ahmed Abu Khatallah, a suspect in the attack on a U.S. facility in Benghazi, Libya, sends a signal to the rest of the world that "when Americans are attacked, no matter how long it takes, we will find those responsible and we will bring them to justice."
Sounds good, but some Americans wonder whether the length of time that it took the administration to hunt down Khatallah actually sends the signal of bravado and strength that the president claims. Others think the bigger issue isn't Khatallah's capture, but the mistakes that led to the killing of four Americans in Libya in the first place, and the perceived coverups and misleading statements by the administration in the aftermath.
According to a recent CNN/ORC International Poll, 60% of Americans are unhappy with the way the administration has handled the attack in Benghazi. That's up 7 percentage points from last year.

Here's what some readers on Twitter and Facebook had to say in response to our recent editorial and to the question we posed on what should happen to Khatallah:
It's another day, and now that Khatallah has been successfully captured, it's time for all those who have hated Obama from the very beginning to start complaining about anything and everything he does.
They should have put a bullet through Khatallah's brain when he was caught.
Are human rights only for non-Muslims?
Maybe we should ask federal prosecutors what should be done about Khatallah. Are we returning to the days of mob rule?
Let's ask Dick Cheney what he thinks we should do about Khatallah. He's the one who got us into this mess in the Middle East.
I hope another hundred or so get captured, too.
