Skip to comments.October Surprise: Obama Plans Major Airstrike on Libyan Targets
Posted on 10/03/2012 4:25:46 PM PDT by Evil Slayer
Today, a Defense Department official confirmed to Breitbart News that there is advance planning for a substantial air package against targets in Libya. Military sources suggest that this means that flight missions against Libyan targets will include manned flights, not merely drones.
The New York Times reported yesterday that the Obama administration is preparing an operation to kill or capture militants involved in the Benghazi attack resulting in the murder of our ambassador to Libya and three other Americans. According to the Times, the Joint Special Operations Command is putting together so-called target packages of detailed information about the suspects. These files are a coordinated project with the CIA and the Pentagon.
The Obama administration is under heavy scrutiny for its failure to protect the US consulate in Benghazi, and for its lack of security around the ambassador. Furthermore, the Obama administration is increasingly perceived as weak on terror, particularly in the aftermath of the Arab Spring, which has largely been hijacked by the well-organized Muslim Brotherhood. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is scheduled to testify next Wednesday before the House Oversight Committee on the lack of security for the ambassador.

It too late it will only be seen as a wag the dog
Asprin factories threatening us again?
Obama attack muslims?
Wow! What a tough guy! Didn’t see this one coming.
I guess Obama really is going to pound sand. *Badoom-ching!*
America is Obama’s plaything. Take it away from him. Otherwise, he’ll just grow tired of it and treat it worse than he already has.
I’m sure our enemies appreciate the advance warning. Maybe Spielberg will stage a mock attack for Zero.
Could the Benghazi attack have been a false flag (black flag) event? Why wasn’t the consulate protected better?
Needs to be done.
It will be seen as election grandstanding if he does it but it still needs to be done. If he fails to get the baddies that will rightfully be laid at O and Hillary’s feet. Its already an issue, rightfully so, that the ambassador was sent to his death without security, and its an issue that we were supporting the people who ultimately murdered him.
Leaving his murder unanswered is unthinkable election or no.
November can’t come soon enough for me.
Donde esta El Jefe Boosh when we need him?
Reality sucks sometimes.
How about they just secure the classified documents at the consultate instead of shooting a missile into a desert tent?
And also, we have broken intelligence gathering. Remember this event was termed a catastrophic intelligence loss.
Al Quaida did that already. We're waiting for their invoice for services rendered.
Can’t we just bomb Qaddaffi’s grave?
So what will this accomplish? Reminds me of Clinton’s salvo of cruise that destroyed an African aspirin factory and blew up some empty al Quiada tents in Afghanistan used as a distraction from his Monica affair.
That’s right. Lets start another war to take our minds off the economy and all that.
I saw the article that says FBI is still in Tripoli trying to get permission to go to Benghazi.
Just makes my hair hurt. Like I say, November can't come soon enough.
Bammy fiddles while the middle east burns.
Pelosi just came out and said it was the Republican’s fault for not having security at the embassy. Read it on Brietbart.
Nothing like telegraphing your punches.
I don’t think the 47% care whether we protect our embassies or not. I doubt they know or care where Libya is or what an ambassador is.
I think that Obama will be reluctant to anger his Muslim base.
Nation of Islam’s Farrakhan Denounces Killing of ‘Brother’ Gadhafi

By: Jim Meyers
Controversial Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan has condemned the killing of his brother Moammar Gadhafi and calls President Barack Obama an assassin for killing Osama bin Laden.
It’s too late because bravado and chest beating while uttering a Tarzan yell eliminates surprise and the enemies will all be gone somewhere else.
So, this is why they left the security off the embassy?
Pelosi’s insane. Must be a slow news day if that’s all Breitbart.com has for us.
No, it was a sub-story.
What needs to be done? Capture and torture for the intel. Then dispose of the guilty parties. Any bombing is just throwing taxpayer money at empty desert sand and likely innocent civilians - probably Christians anyway
Today’s Turkey/Syria cross-border attacks are what I have my eye on. The Pentagon already released a statement this afternoon saying the US will do whatever is necessary to back-up Turkey as it defends itself. Too bad the Administration doesn’t feel the same way about Israel.
Once again -- 47% don't pay federal income taxes. Many of those are retirees & half of them at least are conservatives who DO care. Some are millionaires who pay capital gains and dividends but use deductions to offset income taxes. Many of those are conservatives who DO care. I understand your point but it is not to be directed at 47%. It is some other number.
Especially when you just gave a bunch of MANPADS to the targets of your air assets.
wag the dog in an effort to cover up his ef-ups...
Prediction...The “Airstrikes” will be cargo containers filled with All the Ammo,Food,Fuel, and explosives that a terrorist would need to wage long term jihad against the west.
Limp wrist is going to play tough guy.
screw turkey as long as moosies are killing moosies and it stays within their borders, i don’t care.
so now dumbo is going to bomb the friends of juan mcvain and lindsey grahamnesty. un frigging brlievable.
Romney grow a pair and do a pre strike question?
Oh no, a pair does not grow by simply willing.
These folks aren’t moving.. Wait until after the election.
Won’t they be surprised!!
What a d-bag Obama is. Use dynamite to kill mosquitoes for the sole purpose of influencing an election.
Manipulative, yet completely transparent.
So far, the left doesn’t seem to care about Libya. Well, neither do I except for the sacrifices that Obama offered up, like 4 people. Otherwise this is a silly mission.
Hopefully, this will really hurt his turnout.
Let’s start another war, eliminate the Muslim terrorists we helped install, and put Kaddafi back in power!
Oh, what’s that? You say Kaddafi’s not readily available now? Oh, well, we’ll just have to think of something else.
So who else is thinking he served the ambassador up on a plate for this...
I believe Obama got around the War Powers act by saying we would not be involved in any military action...thus no need for congressional approval.
So now he's got his guys in power there, we are engaging in military maneuvers. Got it.
