President Obama ordered the weekend raids that captured a top al Qaeda operative in Libya and failed to capture a senior leader of the al-Shabab terrorist network in Somalia, the White House said Monday. Presidential press secretary Jay Carney said the Libya raid, in which U.S. agents seized Abu Anas al-Libi, were carried out under authorization granted by Congress in 2001. It was a rendition of the kind that Mr. Obama railed against when he was a candidate for president. This operation was made possible by the superb work and coordination across our national security agencies and the intelligence

Maybe they're wise to his traps now. At least this time.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Special forces are his new drones. his toys, in other words. it’s horrifying.
“I had MY military undertake actions at MY direction.”
“Special forces are his new drones. his toys, in other words. its horrifying.”
In Obama’s own words,The military works for him.What an arrogant a-hole he is.
Waggin’ Da Dawg!
Maybe he’s trying to look tough on the world scene while he stonewalls the House.
Or, maybe somebody in Saudi Arabia is angry at Al-Shebaab and asked for a favor.
With this guy, you never know the real story.
Who in the White Hut released the intel LEAK?
Who in the White Hut directs the continuing coverup
of Fast&Furious, the NSA and IRS Atrocities,
the Benghazi MANPAD xfer, and the Boston Atrocity?
America will find out ONLY from the foreign press
because the American MSM is TOTALLY CONTROLLED by Obama.
Jarrett decided they needed a distraction from the polls on blaming him for not wanting to talk to the GOP but talking to Russia and Iran. O doesn’t do a dang thing. Except play golf. And campaign.
THIS one he did order, yep.
Right after he called up his buddies and gave them all the operational details.
The key for Obama is to skate along a political razor’s edge —gotta be seen as DOING SOMETHING, but have those efforts also be UNPRODUCTIVE.
See? It’s a scam.
The Captain Phillips thang —the SEAL rescue off of Somalia that actually succeeded in a rescue and killed the nappy-headed enemy?
Kay, that was NOT ordered by GayMuzzie —nope. The on-scene SEAL commander got sick of the PastelLovingOne frittering away time and opportunieis and simply told his guys to WASTE ‘EM.
But when GayMuzzie DOES give the order, well, you can be sure they’ll roll snake eyes and come up with nothing, or it will transmogrify into a huge goat *uck in no time.
Ditto for post Bengazi missions (gear stolen).
I immediately figured Bammy was distracting us again......especially when I heard the SEALs had been watching the guy for a year while he moved about freely, no bodyguards, etc. I knew really it when I heard Lyin’ Jay Carney protest that the mission had been authorized for a while and the SEALs do things in their own time........methinks he doth protest tooooo much. And about a lot of things........
to the liberal mind, a special forces mission is the equivalent of using the military without really using the military. it’s socially acceptable at liberal cocktail parties.
even if you lose the whole team, the casualty list is “manageable”.
Wouldn't he be surprised if a squad of Marines dragged his ass out of the White House following his impeachment.
Weren’t we told that there is no War on Terror?
The domocRats have tasted blood and they crave more !
Let's get serious.
Special Forces is the US Army unit that wears the Green Beret.
It looks like the left has decided to just take their name and call everyone Special Forces, that could get awkward when they want to discuss the actual Special Forces.
It will be like an article I saw in the San Diego Union when they were writing about actual Assault Rifles in an article, after years of calling everything “assault rifles”
We should be glad that The W0n didn’t use the Seals domestically, yet.
So why couldn’t he be so brave in the Ben Ghazi episode?
Exactly. Finally someone uses the words, Wag the Dog, that everyone has been hinting at all day.
So much for, “bin laden is dead, and al quada is on the run”.
There is a new target.
John has a long mustache. John has a long mustache.
Paybacks are hell.
I wouldn’t want to be part of any high risk activity that Zero knows about. He’ll tell the enemy every time.
But yet ? instead of turning this into a public relations wonder for Obama, it turned into another public relations wag the hog disaster cluster flop.
The only time that the media and the gay mafia knows he’s being a tough guy is when he pronounces that he won’t be using K-Y Jelly...... Larry Sinclare is in no condition for comment at this time.
I rather use the term “ WAG THE HOG “ for they abstain from it in public when someone else is in power, but in private and in power use the military for their own means and ends...
Obama is drunk on his power.
Obama couldn’t order a pizza without a telepromoter helping him.
I’ll bet that the military/intell people who briefed him on the planned raids were surprised when he asked “Where are Libya and Somalia? Are they our 56th & 57th states?”
Someone probably said they were gulf states and he thought they were near the Carolinas.
No one seems interested in the Army snatching such a big target, who is being interrogated as we speak.
Nobody should know about either mission. Period.
Why have the rules changed so drastically for black ops? We used to hear nothing about successes or failures and I liked it that way - kept the other side off-balance and protected our methods.
Oh, they are making use of the Army Ranger Corps too.
I’m disappointed to hear the units identified, but the entire world reports news, prominent figures being kidnapped, and a battle being raged in Somalia will be covered even if our government doesn’t say anything.
Look at Benghazi, Obama wanted it squelched and won’t supply deep details, but the raw basic news story can’t be stopped.
I am interested. Hope he tells them WHO has been supplying them with weapons all over the Middle East..before Obama wrote that little EO excusing himself for treason. Could get interesting.
Interesting the guy Obama ordered to be captured was very White...
Did he authorize the raids before or after notifying the terrorists about when the Seals would arrive?
