Mustafa al-Imam, who was captured in Libya on Sunday, "will face justice in the United States", US President Donald Trump said in a statement on Monday. "Because of this successful operation, al-Imam will face justice in the United States for his alleged role in the September 11, 2012 attacks".
Meanwhile, Mustafa Al Imam is to be transferred to the USA from the American navy ship where he is now being held following his Monday capture, for federal prosecution, CNN has reported.
"Our memory is deep and our reach is long, and we will not rest in our efforts to find and bring the perpetrators of the heinous attacks in Benghazi to justice", he added.
A Navy SEAL raid in Libya captured Mustafa al-Imam, a radical Islamist militia leader suspected of playing a major role in the Ansar al-Sharia attack on both the USA consulate and its security annex on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
Trump expressed gratitude to US law enforcement, prosecutors, intelligence community and military personnel for their efforts to bring him to justice.
Al-Imam, whose age is estimated at 46, is the second Benghazi suspect to be taken into US custody.

The kid is being dealt with forever undermining wounds, and police said they are examining the bounce as a suicide endeavor. Her father, Patrick Harris, said that she was an outgoing person and had a fondness for the outdoors, particularly hiking.
She was secretary of state when the compound was targeted in September 2012. Another suspect, Ahmed Abu Khattala, is already on trial in the US.
The attack involved armed assailants firing automatic weapons and rocket-propelled grenades blasting through the main diplomatic mission before setting it on fire before then attacking the annex. Stevens and State Department information officer Sean Smith died there from smoke inhalation. Al-Imam follows the same path as the mastermind of the group that perpetrated the attack.
A mortar assault on a nearby annex killed security officers Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, both Central Intelligence Agency contractors and former US Navy SEALs, according to the account. The four American dead included Stevens, the US ambassador to Libya at the time.
During last year's election campaign, the raid became a focus for Republican attacks on Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
Trump also used the statement to call for peace and stable government in Libya, reiterating an American commitment to combat terrorist activity in the North African country.
