The Al-Qaeda Mujahideen presence in Libya is growing every day, a former commander of special western security group in Tripoli said.
"Al-Qaeda presence grows every day. They are certainly more established than we are", lieutenant colonel Wood said.
Earlier, the head of the intelligence committee at the American house of representatives, Rogers, said the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, had been allegedly committed by the people associated with Al-Qaeda.
However, American officials said, this was only a version, and it "needed to be investigated".
Simultaneously, American spies acknowledge that they have suffered a major defeat in Libya after the attack on their diplomatic mission in Benghazi.
The fact is that 1.2 km from the American consulate, attacked on September 11 this year, there was a secret CIA safe house, whose staff was immediately evacuated. Its location is declassified now, and, according to Western media, the American spies will find it extremely difficult to find a similar location for their dirty work.
The now defunct safe house had been used by Washington for collect information on the Mujahideen in Libya, as well as to monitor the movements of Gaddafi's arsenals, including ground-to-air missiles. The safe house had protective sensors, cameras, that had been more "advanced" than a similar den set in the villa where the American ambassador Stevens had been killed.
Sources say that American spies will try to find other ways to gather information about the Libyan Mujahideen.
