WASHINGTON -- Navy SEALs carried out a predawn raid Saturday against a suspected Shabab leader in Somalia who is believed to have planned the group's deadly attack last month on a shopping mall in Kenya, two U.S. officials said.
Also Saturday, a Libyan Al Qaeda leader wanted in connection with the 1998 bombings of two U.S. embassies in East Africa was reportedly captured in Tripoli, Libya.
A U.S. official said the Somalia raid involved commandos storming a beachfront house in a town not far from Mogadishu. It remained unclear whether the target of the raid was killed or even was present.

“Obama needs his peace prize shoved up his ass.”
By Reggie Love? Ooooh, you brute!
The regime blabbing about covert ops again.
Why doesn’t O just laser paint the Seals to make it more convenient?
Did the traitor-in-chief call the LAT with the tip?
I recall Clinton’s invasion of Somalia and when the assault ships hit the beaches they encountered a large force - of media cameras. The troops were visibly embarrassed.
Why couldn’t this villa be leveled with drones and not put any US forces at risk? Carpet bombing Somalia would also be a good option.
I suspect that there would be intelligence that could be gathered, but I’m just speculating.
If it really happened why so low key?. Maybe because we lost brave Warriors in the operation for no reason other than the Wussy in Chief could fell good about himself?
Another private assassination by Der Fuhrer. Throwing his Westgate buddies from Mombassa under the bus, using “his” military.
Who ordered these brave Americans into harm’s way?
Here we go...
Another Obambi’s Wag The Dog because everything else is going to sh!t for him....
Now he can spend the rest of the week reminding how he’s kept us safe....
The debt limit increase will be an easy sell once Zero gets another war going. If he’d cared about fighting terrorists, something would have been done in real time about Benghazi. But he doesn’t. Thanks 1rudeboy.
Yea, more like Bravo Sierra.
Diversion! Watch what the left hand is doing.
Conflicting reports, US says raids went well, nabbed top Al_Qieda guy. Towel heads report US incursion repelled. Anybody?
