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.

The entire article is slanted toward making Obama look like he cares about the USA and the rest of the world, and belittling GWB.
Betcha it is so secret he does not know it himself.
I’m sorry, but the difference isn’t new orders, or more missions, the difference is that we now have more people in the White House and appointed positions who are willing to bather and brag about where our troops are being sent, and what leashes have been removed.
Yes we want our Special Forces concentrated all in one small area.
Deader than a door nail.
That's PRESIDENT Bush.
actually I’d prefer Predators and Reapers but.. I appreciate the sarcasm.
Baraq’s best shot at re-election is a Clintonian plurality win.
He has rock solid support in the low 30s percentile.
Soros just has to find the right 3rd party to bankroll to split the opposition vote.
I see Charlie Crist as one possibility if he pulls off Florida.
hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm is right.
It’s all part of his plan to disarm America: Deploy our most seasoned and well-trained special operators to trouble spots.
Tip off Al-Q to their whereabouts so ambushes can be carefully planned and executed. After a few years of attrition, suddenly we have few special operators left.
All of it can be covered up in the name of OPSEC. No bodies to be recovered. Mail the widows Folded flags, Purple Hearts, and “On behalf of a grateful nation” letters of condolence.
enforcing carbon regulation..
Don’t believe that drivel for ONE MINUTE!
Turning Special Forces loose means more dead ragheads, and Zero is not ABOUT to do anything to harm ragheads, if he can find some way to finesse slithering AROUND it! IMHO
THAT is an angle I had not considered. But you may be right on top of it. Your last two paragraphs are so brutally possible when it comes to Zero!
I wouldn’t trust this evil bastard as far as I could throw a car.
Neither do I.
This may sound paranoid, but you never know.He is a muslim sympathiser, after all.
