SEALs Ended Somalia Raid When They Saw Kids

From Fox News:

U.S. SEALs ended Somalia raid when they saw children, realized couldn’t capture target

Published October 07, 2013

U.S. Navy SEALS from SEAL Team Six cut short their targeted operation against a top al-Shabaab commander in Somalia after a firefight at his seaside compound ended when they saw children and realized they could not capture their target.

As details began emerging about the Friday night raid to capture Abdikadir Mohamed Abdikadir, known as “Ikrima,”  Pentagon press secretary George Little said in a statement Monday the military personnel “conducted the operation with unparalleled precision.” …

That may be, but precision does not equal accuracy One can be precisely wrong.

Al Shabaab is the militant group in Somalia linked to last month’s Kenya mall attack that killed more than 60 people.

So we know how much they care about kids.

SEAL Team Six is the same unit that killed Usma bin Laden in his Pakistan hideout in 2011.

A detail that Mr. Obama trumpeted to the world. Which they had to pay for, later.

Meanwhile, a team of military, intelligence and Justice Department interrogators has been sent to the USS San Antonio in international waters to question terror suspect Abu Anas al-Libi, who was captured in Libya over the weekend in a separate raid, two law enforcement officials told The Associated Press on Monday…

Al-Libi was indicted in 2000 for his involvement in the 1998 bombings of U.S. embassies in Africa.

The Obama administration has said it can hold high value detainees on a ship for as long as it needs to. During his confirmation hearing in June 2011 to be the head of U.S. Special Operations Command, Adm. William McRaven said the U.S. could keep a detainee on a ship for as long as it takes to determine whether the U.S. could prosecute the suspect in civilian court or if the U.S. could return the suspect to another country.

What a preposterous PR stunt from Obama. How much does it cost to keep this ship at sea? Why not just put them in Gitmo? That’s why we have it, after all.

He will have to be put ashore somewhere someday. But, knowing this administration, it will probably be in New York City.

    What’s the difference between a flack jacket & a young Muslim child.

    One is pressed into battle to protect the combatant in terrorist infested urban centers & the other bullet resistent clothing.

    Religion of peace; imagine that.

  2. Right of the People

    Terrorist are just craven cowards surrounding themselves with innocents like how they place their HQs in areas around hospitals, etc.

    As far as the clown they captured and are interrogating, when they’re done let him join Bin Laden in the deep blue sea, no need to bring him stateside for a show trial.
