An accused operative for Al Qaeda, Abu Anas al-Libi, seized by United States commandos in Libya over the weekend is being interrogated while in military custody on a Navy ship in the Mediterranean Sea. The fugitive is seen as a potential intelligence gold mine, containing a suspected twenty years of information regarding Al Qaeda from its early days under bin Laden up till today. He is being held without a lawyer, a pattern used previously by the Obama administration with other terrorist suspects. Officials say Abu Anas is being held aboard the U.S.S. San Antonio, a vessel used specifically for this particular mission. Abu Anas, 49, is being held on charges of conspiring with Bin Laden in plots to attack United States forces in Saudi Arabia, as well as the 1998 bombings of the United States embassies in Nairobi, Kenya, and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
