Two Tunisian citizens accused of being behind the recent murder of the U.S. ambassador to Libya in Benghazi were apprehended last night by police at Istanbul Atatürk Airport while trying to enter Turkey with fake passports, according to private channel Kanal D.

The suspects, who were not identified, were detained by members of Turkey’s anti-terrorism squad and subsequently taken to the Istanbul Police Department in the city’s Fatih district for questioning, hurriyet.com.tr reported.

Envoy Chris Stevens, as well as three other American diplomatic staff, were killed on Sept. 11 by suspected militants in the middle of a protest in Benghazi over “The Innocence of Muslims,” a U.S.-made film that mocks Islam.

J. Christopher Stevens was main architect of Libyan Jihadis. He used to brag and be proud of being mentor of these terrorist. Later he became victim of same good guys. Now Turkey is harboring thousands of Salfist Jihadis, FSA, and other terrorist. Now Turkish government need to prepare to pay back for her alleged terror support. Time to pay back is approaching sooner then later. Turkish people need to rise up and stop these criminal activities by their government in Syria for their own security.

To make their way to Syria or Iraq? This needs to be confirmed. Very flimsy.

Why from all countries they choose Turkey? may be they found soft nest there? watching the love story between the leader of the "Children of Mother Teresa" (Hamas) to Turkish AKP leadership, I have no further surprises. The embrace to the Hamas leader Haled Mashaal by the Turkish government was a real shame.
