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?


Most likely, the Libyan govt. and the informant(s) who supplied the info on the guy's whereabouts.

Sounds like quite a firefight took place in Somalia. It also sounds like it was not a total success.

They didn't get the target and equipment was abandoned. That's not a "not a total success". That's a straight-up defeat. Especially if the point was to weaken al-Shabaab, since now they get to go around calling themselves the group that beat the Americans.

What was the point of capturing him if we can't interrogate him? Seems it would be easier just to kill him.

Relatively Obscure: 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.


Unless he dies first before he gets to the States. Accidentally, of course. By lots of bootprints to the head. Accidentally.

You jokers should learn from Jimmy Carter about trimming the black budget. Sociopaths will make it their mission to fark with you if you don't pay them.

However when they got back to base and went to get some chow, they found the commissary closed down because the contractors that feed them aren't getting paid anymore.

Thanks Farbongo.

All that military work and not one drop of oil to show for it.

Give me back my neo-cons!!1! Those soldiers volunteered and it's up to our president to exploit their patriotism!!1!

/so glad I voted for Obama...twice. Hell, I'm gonna vote for a third time. And more than once.

One on my newsfeed has been certain the 'revolution' is imminent for the past 4.5 years (gee, I wonder why). She's been in a hoverround longer than that.

Wow, so the Obama Government is cleaning up shiat from the Bush era and Republicans still find a way to be whiny little biatches about how he's totally unAmerican?

This totally reinforces my belief that republicans are unAmerican whiny little biatches.

Oldiron_79: doglover: Oldiron_79: 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.

Actually SEALs are just ninjas. Pirates don't sneak.

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)


The Spanish should have learned to expect these things.

Attack happened in 1998?  Clearly this is evidence that Bush's policies work if given enough time, dumbocrats.
