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.
