American officials have announced the capture of an unidentified official of the al Shabab terrorist organization
The terrorist was seized in an early morning raid at the beachfront house in Baraawe, Somalia where al Shabab leader Ahmed Abdi Godane was last known to be living
Al Shabab confirmed the attack, saying one of their fighters had been killed but that they had pushed back the SEALs
American officials would not say whether the official had been taken dead or alive
A Navy SEAL team has launched a daring raid on Somalia and captured a top terror leader linked to last months Kenya mall attack.
Special Forces troops from the elite unit attacked the town of Baraawe and seized one as yet unidentified enemy fighter.
The town of Baraawe was the last known home of Ahmed Abdi Godane . He is the leader of al-Shabab, the terror group that claimed responsibility for the attack on a mall in Nairobi that killed 69 people starting on September 21.
American officials and sources representing al Shabab both confirmed the fight.
'The Barawe raid was planned a week and a half ago,' an anonymous American security official told the New York Times. 'It was prompted by the Westgate attack.'
The SEALs attacked a beachfront house where high-level members of al Shabab were known to stay.
They attacked before dawn, and initially used silencers, but it soon turned into a firefight loud enough for neighbors to hear.
A witness said that 12 Shabab fighters were staying there at the time of the assault, waiting to leave for a mission abroad......

Barry’s friends aren’t going to like this.
Guess they need to watch their backs now....you know what happens to SEAL teams who take out muzzies....you know FOB...
Friends of Barack...
So freakin’ what! We obviously will never bring them to trial of any kind. He will enjoy his stay at Camp Gitmo until we return him to the battlefield.
I’ll bet he has all kinds of useful information.
Ill bet he has all kinds of useful information
and if he does it will be leaked and cease to be of no use to anyone but the terrs
And after a year, not one single capture or arrest in the Benghazi terrorist attack on Obama & Hillary’s gun-running operation.
Watch out now for an attack at a mall near you.
Point well taken —
Waiting for him to get more face time claiming credit.
0bama is protecting his homeland not the U.S.
Outstanding work, gentlemen. Thank you.
The unidentified Shabab leader is believed to have been killed in the firefight, but the SEAL team was forced to withdraw before that could be confirmed, a senior American security official said.
American officials initially reported that they had seized the Shabab leader, but later backed off that account. The first American security official said there were no reports of American casualties in the operation.
Another gutsy call by a gutsy president. Nobody else would have the balls to make that decision.
More Seals scheduled for termination by Ubama’s al Qaeda friends.
Owebamma can find bad actors in Somalia but can’t find the guys behind the Benghazi attack?
Now, he’ll kill them. Not right now. Later.
Fox is saying we killed the head of the group in a hour long gun battle.
but at least we’ll have the pleasure of extracting it from him.
Quick ,put a gag in Joe Biden’s mouth.
“Barrys friends arent going to like this.”
No problem. I’m sure barry will give the SEALs name and address of his family to his muzzies buds.
Hey, hey, hey, what’s going on here? The evil Republicans have shut down the government. What are these guys doing working off the clock? They ought to be reported to AFSCME or SIEU.
Thanks Uncle Chip. Oh, and don’t forget, Obama got Osama.
Names and addresses of the Navy Seals who participated will be published soon.
