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.

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.
Why should this be considered an October surprise; every body knows that Obumbler has to look like a tough guy to his brain-dead constituents after the massacre in Libya. For Ozombie it is real easy to put good Americans in harms way if he thinks it will get him another vote.
Geez, all this over a movie??!! Wow.
Boy oh Boy, these people are really something. Do they have any aspirin factories in Libya? The White Hut also says the operation will be to "capture" or "kill" militants. Don't they have to have boots on the ground to capture any of them? They're claiming they can't get approval to send in the FBI to conduct a proper investigation. How are they going to get ground troops in there to do any capturing? And let's face it, it's highly improbable that a proper investigation could even be conducted after all this time. What bull$hit.
This was planned before Christopher Stevens was murdered. Unfortunately for Chris, he didn’t know he was part of the plan.
Won’t this bother the huge liberal anti-war voting base?
Feh. I thought it was all the video’s fault.
Probably is. 0bama’s real familiar with Libya, especially since he illegally waged war there to install his Muzzie Brotherhood buddies.
Wow, so 3 weeks ago Libya was as safe as Disneyland, now we can’t get any closer than a bomb bay at 40,000’.
October Surprise: Obama Plans Major Airstrike on Libyan Targets
What for? For an attack on our embassy from last month? Talk about weak wishy-washy decision making.
Besides. His SOS (Hitlery) has already announced Bammie will take this “decisive” action. Right after the elections.
October surprise? I hope so. I really hope the Kenyan is counting on this.
