Ahmed abu Khattala was just captured
in Spite of the declarations of Ayotte, McCaina and Graham.
Via Jed Lewison at the Daily Kos Last month Kelley Ayotte, John McCcain, and Lindsey Graham wrote "Since we know where Ahmed abu Khattala is, why hasn’t he been detained?"
Ahmed abu Khattala was recently detained in spite of the publication of the fact that the US authorities knew where he was.
I'm pretty sure that Ayotte, McCain and Graham have the speach and debate clause to thank for the fact that they aren't criminally liable under the Espionage Act.
update: In fact abu Khattala was living openly in his mom's house. He knew that everyone knew where he was, so the fact that the US government knew wasn't a secret at all.
