WASHINGTON -- A video obtained and published by The Washington Post Monday shows the capture Anas al-Libi, one of the FBI's most wanted terror suspects, who was grabbed in Tripoli, Libya, last fall.

In the video, al-Libi's car stops in front of his house shortly before dawn last October. A white van pulls up next to him and Delta commandos leap out.

Freeze the video and you can clearly see one of them standing in front of the car his pistol trained on the front seat. Another van pulls into blocking position as a second commando goes for the driver's side door. The commandos wrestle al-Libi out of his car and into the van and speed away.

The next day al-Libi's family described the attack, which was presumably recorded by a security camera. A few dings and one broken window were the only evidence of the violent confrontation. By then, al-Libi was being interrogated aboard a U.S. Navy ship in the Mediterranean.
