Security officials in Egypt began to interrogate eight men suspected of belonging to a terrorist cell in Nasr City, the Egyptian media reported.
The suspects are accused of possessing weapons and plotting to assassinate public figures with the aim of overthrowing Egypt's government.
Security forces suspect that the alleged terrorist cell planned to attack Egypt's interior ministry in Cairo and to assassinate political figures, according to Egyptian media reports.
The terror suspect who died in the attack allegedly tried to throw a bomb at police, which detonated in the apartment, killing him, the al-Ahram newspaper reported.
According to Egyptian newspaper al-Masry al-Youm, the FBI assisted Egyptian security officials uncover the cell, which was allegedly involved in last month's terrorist attack on the US consulate in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi, in which the ambassador, Chris Stevens, and three other Americans were killed.

Not sure what to make of this info, except to note that there seems to be an awful lot about this that hasn't been made public.
The FBI wasn't on the scene until days after the attack, yet they were still able to gather enough info to alert the Muslim Brotherhood government of Egypt that there was a terror cell about to strike?

"...the FBI assisted Egyptian security officials uncover the cell, which was allegedly involved in last month's terrorist attack on the US consulate in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi.
The raided apartment contained a massive weapons cache, including explosives, rocket-propelled grenades and ammunition, the Egyptian media cited security sources as saying."
Fancy that, will you.
The Kenyan must go.

“Questioning” them, it says? Yeah, “what kind of villa would you prefer? What model automobile? Where would you like your statue?” Stuff like that

Questioning, or using torture to extract confessions?

I’m sure the Muslim Brotherhood men learned everything Mubarak could teach them, firsthand, and then have put into practice some new wrinkles of their own.
