Posted on 10/02/2012 10:59:20 AM PDT by PghBaldy
WASHINGTON The American militarys top-secret Joint Special Operations Command is preparing detailed information that could be used to kill or capture some of the militants suspected in the attack last month in Libya that killed Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans, senior military and counterterrorism officials said on Tuesday.
Preparing the target packages is the first step in a process that the Pentagon and Central Intelligence Agency are taking in preparation for, and in advance of, any orders from President Obama and his top civilian and military advisers to carry out action...

What are they thinking?? They’re insane. Stuff is ALWAYS on the table...but is it necessary OR PRUDENT to advertise it??
Either the NYT revealed (yet, again) classified info.....or they are trying to make Obama appear like he’s a ‘tough guy’.
Apparently, Libya has asprin factories, too.
They don’t investigate it, yet they re planning to attack. They and the media have the gall to criticize Romney as a “shoot first, ask questions later” guy, yet they do this? We should retaliate properly, I just don’t trust this knuckleheaded hck and his politicized national security team.
So how does taking military action match up against the argument that the video caused the riots?
An admission that it was a planned coordinated action.
We have a winner..
They'll have control of the news cycle for the next 48 hours, which is all they need to claim victory. Even if it turns out to be a cluster...k afterwards, the election will be over.
The Military started planning targets within a few hours of 9/11/12, it’s standard procedure. The NYT is just pimpin’ the Long Legged Mack Daddy.
Wow. When I hear ahead of time via the NYT that targets are being prepared, I expect some of our guys to die. With this admin, I expect leaks and ambushes. Maybe the NYT can show us on a map where the targets are specifically.
Must be the warmonger Republicans doing this, everyone knows it was a ‘spontaneous’ protest caused by an American YouTube video.
“Obama is going to “wag the dog” the first week of November, probably on Sunday after the morning talk shows are over.”
Depends upon how much traction the Libya coverup gets. If its a lot and it becomes an issue in the campaign, Nov would be too late, it would be just too obvious.
See this thread:
Issa to Hillary: Why did State refuse requests to bolster Benghazi security?
From the article:
Furthermore, terrorists had posted pictures of Ambassador Stevens going for a routine morning jog and threatening to abduct or kill him. The Libyan security guards in the Benghazi consulate had been receiving warnings for weeks before the attack to quit, as an attack was planned for the facility. According to Issa, the embassy asked for heightened security for their diplomatic missions and got nothing but static in response.
Just sand....in the middle of no where.
Just so Hussein can say "We took the fight to the bad guys!"
(No actual camels or goats (much less Jihadis) will be harmed in this exercise.)
They gonna blow up youtube?
As I posted yesterday get ready for wag the dog.
I bet they get targeted, killed, and buried at sea without any public pictures. I bet this happens 1 week before the election.
"Must be photogenic with an innocent, Western look..."
OUR TOP STORY TONIGHT -- ABDUL AZIZ OF 13453 CASBAH WAY IN BENGAZI IS TARGETED FOR ASSASSINATION TOMORROW!"
No. Someone will die. The thing is, obama doesn’t care who...whether it’s Mexican civilians, American Border Patrol Agents, or random muslims or Christians in some godforsaken hellhole.
Libya still working out cooperation with U.S. in Benghazi probe
(Reuters) - Libya and the United States have yet to agree how a U.S. investigative team will cooperate in a probe into a deadly attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, a senior Libyan official said on Tuesday.
And the FBI has still not gotten into Libya. I’m sure the crime hasn’t been compromised by now.
This was predicted. A few harmless missiles sent in to undefined “targets” right before the election and the Obmanation will be crowing about his foreign policy “triumphs”.
These ragheads are not dumb. They’re not hiding out in the desert where a SEAL team can find and kill them as happened a few times to the camps in Qaddafi’s Libyan desert. They’ll be hiding out in the cities of Libya, Egypt, and Tunisia;Tunis, Torbruk, Tripoli, Cairo, Alex. And we’re not going to drone them in those environments. Too big a chance of collateral damage, and as the cities in Tunisia have many Italian and French residents, too big a chance of killing a friendly. The ONLY group that has the people, the skills, the appearance, the cultural knowledge and language to do the job? Well we don’t talk to them anymore. And as long as Bombo is POTUS I don’t think they’ll pick up the phone if we call.
I would be glad if they could get the terrorists who did this.
But I have no faith that they will. They are just as likely to just kill some random people and CLAIM they got the terrorists.
And the media will simply accept whatever they are told. All these drone strikes, and the media has never questioned whether we are actually killing the people we claim we are killing.
This is about
Rambo's Obama's reelection.
Thar is simply ridiculous. The whole damn thing is right out there for anyone with a working brain cell to understand. What are they gonna do? Dust for fingerprints?
What I want to know is the EXACT cause of Chris Stevens’ death and the condition of his body when it was recovered.
OBL was killed against 0bama's wishes. I don't think he made the decision to raid that compound and was probably upset at how much this angered his Muslim brothers.
Love it. Thanks!
FBI too busy looking for Jimmy Hoffa under a driveway.
Quick! Bomb them before everyone figures out we supplied them!
Don’t tell hussein, he’ll leak it to his comrades on the other side.
Wag the Dog to get the news of the Benghazi Scandal off the News A.S.A.P.
Bet they hit the consulate itself!
We need to forget nation building and start punitive expiditions. Find the Al-qida villages and hit them with a MOAB bombs.

Oh yeah. clinton ingratiated himself with an inordinate number of terrorist orgs, read drug runners, both before and after becoming president. He actually wanted Masoud to surrender to the taliban.
Good thing none of the targets reads the NYT nor knows anyone that does.
October Surprise on the menu.
