On April 23, President Barack Obama gave a statement mourning the loss of two hostages who died in a missile strike on an Al-Qaeda compound.
"This morning, I want to express our grief and condolences to the families of two hostages. One American, Dr. Warren Weinstein, and an Italian, Giovanni Lo Porto, who were tragically killed in a U.S. counterterrorism operation."
Now, several months later, a report from The Washington Post claims the CIA may have detected a Western hostage held by Al-Qaeda, who may have been Warren Weinstein. But the agency may have failed to follow up on the intel, eventually losing track of him. (Video via ABC)
