Obama secretly deploys US special forces to 75 countries across world Tim Reid and Michael Evans, Washington
President Obama has secretly implemented a huge increase in the number of US special forces carrying out search-and-destroy missions against al-Qaeda around the world, with American troops now operating in 75 countries.
The dramatic expansion in the use of special forces, which in their global span go far beyond the covert missions authorised by George W. Bush, reflects how aggressively the President is pursuing al-Qaeda behind his public rhetoric of global engagement and diplomacy.
When Mr Obama took office US special forces were operating in fewer than 60 countries. In the past 18 months he has ordered a big expansion in Yemen and the Horn of Africa known areas of strong al-Qaeda activity and elsewhere in the Middle East, central Asia and Africa.
According to The Washington Post, Mr Obama has also approved pre-emptive special forces strikes to disrupt terror plots, and has given the units powers and authority that was not granted by Mr Bush when he occupied the White House.

Thus spreading our forces even thinner..
I don’t believe it.
Hummmmmmmm! Yes! And yet we can not call them by name. we must give them rights in civilian courts. We must bend over to do everything possible to elevate them and their ideals over our won.
Hummmmm! I just wonder.
They’re are probably on humanitarian missions.
The goal is obvious, find OBL and Zawahri before Nov, 2012. It is the only chance he has of getting reelected.
job corp....or corpse...not sure.
OBL? He’s dead Gym.
Bull droppings. Hussein doesn’t give a damn about stopping terrorism. Any special forces being deployed are part of an ongoing plan that Hussein hasn’t decided to destroy yet or he has merely “outsourced” that decision making part of his job to someone else.
His focus is to destroy American liberty, economy, and prosperity. He also seems to like the trappings of power: the cult-worship, the mansions, and the golf.
The man is absolutely desperate to get something, anything, right.
It’s a good thing he’s doing it SECRETly, otherwise the bad guys would find out.
Moonbat heads are exploding and Nobel Peace Prizes are melting over this news.
Add one more ‘M’ for me.....
Kudos if true. I said Bush should of had a two thousand hit team member crew world wide the day after 9/11. ( Of course that would of been rubber meets the road, what are you going to do about it, but then I a American bigot. )
