Skip to comments.U.S. Said to Be Preparing Potential Targets Tied to Libya Attack
Posted on 10/02/2012 11:36:27 AM PDT by Evil Slayer
WASHINGTON The American militarys top-secret Joint Special Operations Command is preparing detailed information that could be used to kill or capture some of the militants suspected in the attack last month in Libya that killed Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and
Preparing the target packages is the first step in a process that the Pentagon and Central Intelligence Agency are taking in preparation for, and in advance of, any orders from President Obama and his top civilian and military advisers to carry out action against those determined complicit in the attack on the United States Mission in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi.
Mr. Obama, whose administration has faced criticism from both Republicans and Democrats over a possible intelligence failure before the Benghazi attack, has vowed that he would bring the killers of Mr. Stevens and the three other Americans to justice, but he and his top advisers have not indicated how that might happen.
Mr. Obama has a range of options available including drone strikes, Special Operations raids like the one that killed Osama bin Laden; and joint missions with the Libyan authorities but all carry substantial political, diplomatic and physical risks. Administration officials say no decisions have been made on any potential targets.
The Joint Special Operations Command, which includes the Navy SEAL team that killed Bin Laden, works continuously with the C.I.A. to update several lists of potential terrorist targets around the world.
Since the attack on the diplomatic mission and a nearby annex in Benghazi on the night of Sept. 11, American officials say that Special Operations planners have sharply increased their efforts to track the location and gather information on several members of Ansar al-Shariah as well as other militants with ties to Al Qaedas arm in North Africa Al Qaeda

Well, I’m glad the Obama Administration is keeping all of this stuff secret.
I hope they target our enemies and not our friends.
Loose lips sink ships.....this man is a coward and this proves it.......
Wag the Dog to get the Benghazi scandal off the news A.S.A.P.
Gotta be a lie.
After all, the White House goons wouldn’t target themselves.
Well I guess we know what Obama’s October Surprise is going to be.
Somewhere in Libya, a camel is about to get hit in the butt by a ten million dollar missile.
He will pull a Clinton and send a few missles to bomb a few camels and announce he has destroyed the killers and inflicted massive payback.
This is an intentional national security leak from the White House for political reasons, to look "tough on terror". Instead of keeping the leak secret to protect national security from exceptionally grave damage, the NYT is helping the White House to publicize the creation of this target package list. The White House and NYT both know that doing so will make it far more difficult to acquire critical information on these targets. They don't care. All that matters to them is keeping power over the American people, not keeping us safe from terrorists. Obama and his followers disgust me.
Wow. That’s some Presidential stuff right there... “Hey, it’s been about a month and we’re seriously thinking about blowing something up from afar.”
What a loser.
Sorry for the rant, Evil Slayer. You were not involved. Am ranting at the zer0 crowd and zer0's lap dogs.
So...are SpecOps guy going to take out the wierd film maker? I am confused...isn’t he in jail?
Amazingly enough the strikes have been scheduled ahead of time and just happen to coincide with all 4 debate nights.
