US forces reportedly carry out missions in Somalia and Libya

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.

"At this point we can't confirm his status. He may not have been there, or could have been killed or injured," a U.S. official said.

Obama needs his peace prize shoved up his ass.

Although I must admit I enjoy seeing the Prize committee getting their noses rubbed in their liberalism as often as possible.

The regime blabbing about covert ops again.

Why doesn’t O just laser paint the Seals to make it more convenient?

The liberals are already pushing the narrative of Obama as the conquering hero for keeping us safe and proving that he doesn't let anyone kill Americans.
20 years ago


Probably OFA paid shills.

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?

Just heard they’re going to discharge me this afternoon
and transfer me to a short-term rehab center.
Hoping to get physical therapy there so I can transfer

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.
