#1 Seek and ye shall find. Abu Anas al Libi in Libia," Pentagon Press Secretary George Little said in a statement. "He is currently lawfully detained under the law of war in a secure location outside of Libia. Abu Anas al Libi has been indicted in the Southern District of New York in connection with his alleged role in Al Qaeda's conspiracy to kill U.S. nationals and to conduct attacks against U.S. interests worldwide, which included Al Qaeda plots to attack U.S. forces stationed in Saudi Arabia, Yemen, and Somalia, as well as the U.S. embassies in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and Nairobi, Kenya." Multiple senior U.S. officials told Fox News that Libi is being held on a ship at sea. "Libi could be held at sea for a matter of weeks before he is turned over to law enforcement authorities," one senior U.S. official told Fox News.

#3 Since he will be tried in civilian courts, he will probably walk. Much of the evidence against him is probably based on intel sources that the government won't dare use in open court. Plus, they probably forgot to read him his Miranda rights before capturing him.
