The U.S. military carried out a missile strike in Somalia on Sunday, targeting a suspected militant leader with links to the al-Qaeda and al-Shabaab terror groups, U.S. military officials told NBC News.
U.S. military and intelligence officials are reviewing bomb damage assessment to determine if the terror leader was killed or wounded in the strike.
The officials would not yet identify the target of the strike.
The al-Shabaab group which the State Department designates as a terrorist organization is a loosely affiliated band of militia insurgents in southern Somalia that has close ties to the al-Qaeda terror network.

The Clown frees buddies of bin Laden, allows the terrorists to take over Fallujah, embraces the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, lies about the failure to protect American lives in Benghazi, gives the green light to Iran to get nukes, ignores the security of Israel, keeps American borders open to terrorists, ignores warnings about the Boston bombers sent by Russia....but fires some missiles at some low level operative in Somalia, and the media gloms onto it like the White House is really tough on terror.
Clown Prince nobama wants you to watch what he is doing with his left hand...watch his right. The bum is a flim-flam artist.

We probably shot a goat in the ass with a $500k+ cruise missile.
