As reported by the Pentagon, U.S. Special Forces captured al Qaeda commander, Nazih Abdul-Hamed al-Ruqai aka Anas al Libi, responsible for 1998 bombings of the United States Embassies in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and Nairobi, Kenya, on August 7, 1998 that resulted in the death of 224 people, injuring more than 1000.
Jihadist, Al-Libi who is now in U. S. custody outside of Libya was apprehended kidnapped in broad daylight on a street in front of his home in Tripoli, Libya by army commandos.
In another raid, in retribution of the Islamic terrorist a few weeks ago at the Westgate Mall in Nairobli, Kenya, the U S Navy SEALS converged upon a villa in Somalia where high-level members of al Shabaab were expected to be hiding out.
...According to Fox News sources, a shootout ensued when SEALs entered the Somali villa, with the SEALs subsequently unable to bring the body of one of the militants killed back with them. A senior U.S. official told Fox News that no U.S. personnel were injured in the operation, but one militant was killed.
Little confirmed the raid earlier Saturday, saying: ‘I can confirm that yesterday, October 4, U.S. military personnel were involved in a counter terrorism operation against a known Al Shabaab terrorist. We are not prepared to provide additional detail at this time….’READ FULL ARTICLE
Again, with the “no body”, no proof thing.
While I appreciate the job that the United States Military has to do and I hold the utmost respect for the men and women who serve, I am also concerned about the safety of our heroes.
I am thrilled that our heroes nailed a jihadist. He should have been in custody long ago. However, Barack Obama’s approval levels are extremely low due to Obama’s authoritarian rule and thugocracy.
Thus, he needs a distraction and something to nurture his ego while at the same time raising his approval level.
The last time Obama’s desperately needed a distraction, to nurture his ego and to raise his approval ratings, Obama spiked the ball with Osama Bin Laden’s head or so he would have us believe.
Several months later we ended up with dead Navy SEALS so forgive my lack of excitement in light of the narcissist-in-chief putting the lives of Navy SEALS at risk.
At risk, in light of the fact that the Muslim Brotherhood is entrenched in our government from the White House down through the Department of State and beyond.
As far as the raid in Somalia, let that be a lesson to Al Shabaab for terrorizing Obama’s homeland, all of which means very little since Obama funds jihadist and is in bed with their counterparts.
Finally, if Obama for one moment thinks that these raids gets him off the hook for Benghazi, Extortion 17 and the other scandals, his countless acts of treason against the American people, he is wrong.
