Obama got Al Shabab to deliver that message. You can see the results.

has been wanted for more than a decade by the U.S. and has a $5 million reward on his head.

So who gets the reward?

Thanks, al-ShaBOB

A Kenyan always repays his debts.
 
2013-10-05 09:31:19 PM
He has been indicted in New York in connection with the attacks and could ultimately be brought to the U.S. to stand trial.

Suuurrre.

I'm sure Fox will try to spin this aa Obama being weak.
And I will laugh.

A very good friend of mine's mother was murdered in Kenya, but the investigation died when the embassy was blown up. So to hell with this guy.

Do we know he was taken into custody - other reports say that part of the story was walked back.

Unfortunately, the suspect tripped and fell on a pile of bullets which embedded themselves in the back of his skull.

Q: What's the difference between Ted Cruz and Lou Costello?

A: One delivers hilarious self-parodying comedy, constantly walking into slapstick situations left by a tall, handsome 'straight man'. The other is a much-loved but deceased actor.

Not to be confused with Nathan Lane; again, one is the often-buffoonish half of a comedy duo, and the other is an actor who starred in The Birdcage.

(am I the only one who finds the resemblance disconcerting?)

more evidence that obama is "soft on terror?"
 
2013-10-05 10:56:17 PM
So the standing army gets paid and this is news.

Maybe the SEALs just decided to do this while they were sitting around bored at home
 
2013-10-05 10:58:46 PM
Soft on terror!

Prolly a made for TV movie, with a square-jawed Navy commander pretending not to receive the order to stand down.

"Sorry, Fartbama. This isn't Benghazi. This time we're gonna WIN!"

Sounds like quite a firefight took place in Somalia.  It also sounds like it was not a total success.
 
2013-10-05 11:01:50 PM
Fun fact, once upon a time some people where debating the pirate vs ninja thing , then the "why not both" girl popped in and bam the seals where created.

I would, but it would be disingenuous and the universe would explode from the paradox.

That show already got cancelled, and had a really unsatisfying ending, and now I don't get to see Dichen Lachman anymore.

By that I take it you mean that Somalia is still there.

I thought in order to troll one first had to make sense, is my knowledge of these mystical ways wrong?

Why is Fartbong0 putting our troops in harm's way when we have all these drones?
 
2013-10-05 11:13:41 PM
From the BBC article it sounds like the US has been using drones there for a while as well.

I'm pretty sure that was the plot to Inception. Still, as I understand it, the standing military is still at work, and they're getting paid.

fusillade762: has been wanted for more than a decade by the U.S. and has a $5 million reward on his head.

So who gets the reward?


No one, probably. I knew a guy who killed a guy who had $100,000 on his head in Iraq, but since he was a soldier he didn't get shiat. In theory an informant could get the reward money, I think, but didn't they weasel out of that with Bin Laden? I doubt this would be different.

Bullshiat, they frequently used false flags to sneak up on prey. Also Captain Henry Morgan used cover of night to sneak in and sack several spanish cities(nobody expected that)

FoxNews reports that Obama has attacked the sovereign nation of the TeaParty paradise.
TeaParty Reports that they only wanted to teach those damn Elitists in the mall a lesson of not flaunting your wealth. Recommends wearing large pieces of gold on fingers and body, while dressing in loose fitting shirts and shorts made of the 'Murican flag to avoid being attacked again.

Obama didn't swim to Somalia, track the guy down, wrestle him to the ground, decapitate him with a dull butter knife and sodomize the neck hole while screaming "THIS IS WHAT YOU GET, MOTHERfarkER!"

Therefore he is a coward.
 
2013-10-05 11:23:38 PM
Doing wet work in revenge for something that happened in Nigeria sure seems essential. ('Oh please' on the embassy bombing aspect which feels tagged on)

Just came back from watching Captain Phillips and judging by how they portrayed the SEALs yeah....they make killing look like blinking.

/Tom Hanks acted very well, can't deny that

Wait, has anybody seen Obama since Friday night?
 
2013-10-05 11:40:26 PM
Remember when Obama gave a couple speeches over the last few days mocking and/or castigating certain people in Washington and some of us thought "hmmm this reminds me of that whole Trump/bin Laden situation"? So, um....yeah.

Last I saw he was heading to the kitchen to get a butter knife.
