U.S. strikes al Qaeda affiliate in Somalia

From CNN Pentagon correspondent Barbara Starr

CNN has learned that U.S. military aircraft conducted a strike near Kismayo in southern Somalia last week as part of new secret joint Pentagon and CIA war against a terrorist group the U.S. believes is targeting Europe and the United States.

The U.S. hit a stronghold of al Shabaab, a Somali-based al Qaeda affiliate now in the U.S. crosshairs.

U.S. military and CIA personnel have gone to Somalia in recent months, gathering intelligence and meeting key Somali contacts, according to two U.S. officials. The White House believes that al Shabaab and al Qaeda are now hand in glove.

    certainly like your web site however you need to take a look at the spelling on several of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling issues and I in finding it very troublesome to inform the reality then again I'll surely come again again.

    Everyone involved. Everyone bickering about it. Everyone ignoring either part of it......are plain and simple............................MONSTERS!
    Not human anymore.

    The other type is.....the ones who just want everyone to stop and be grown adults about matters at hand.

    NO ONE....(I REPEAT) NO ONE IS MAKING ANY MILITARY PERSONNEL JOIN ANY MILITARY!
    NO ONE...(I REPEAT) NO ONE IS MAKING ANYONE JOIN THE OTHER MILITARY.
    NO ONE...(I REPEAT) IS MAKING ANYONE KILL!

    There are now two different types of humans. One type is the human that fights, argues and ignores!
    THE OTHER TYPE ARE THE ONES WHO JUST WANT EVERYONE TO CEASE AND DESIST! THEY ACT LIKE HUMANS USING KNOWLEDGE TO HELP EVERYONE. NOT TO KILL THEM.
    WHEN YOU BECOME THE LATTER.....COME AND )SEE) ME! I CAN HELP YOU ALL. I AM PART OF THE ANSWER.

    NO MORE WARS, AMMUNITION, LASER GUIDED, RESISTANCE, KILLING, HOPELESSNESS ON ALL SIDES. YES I SAID IT!
    EVERYONE KNOWS DEEP DOWN INSIDE THEY WANT TO LOVE, BE LOVED, EAT, BE WARM AT NIGHT, BE DRY. THERE IS NOT A HUMAN OUT THERE THAT REALLY WANTS TO KILL YOU. IF THEY DO .....THEN THEY AREN'T HUMAN ANYMORE!.

    If you are male, or female above the age of 18 and want to bitch about things in this still amazing country by the name of the United States of America sign yourself into the military. Live without your basic "necessities" for a year over seas. Learn to value the things that you have access to and own that 98 percent of the rest of the world does not. There are things going on beyond your comprehension, battles being fought without you knowing it. Yes, believe that or not. I really don't care if you do but I am giving you the truth. Nobody hates a war more than a soldier. We are the British, American, French soldiers, ect. that are fighting this while you spend your days driving to work complaining about your high gas prices while our friends pay the high price that is our lives on our "strolls" that are patrols safe guarding a village that doesn't share the beliefs that a different tribe or sect of people does not. We are the ones rebuilding the schools, giving our water and Meal Ready To Eat to children that have less than we do minutes or hours before being fired upon by "men" disguised in civilian clothing.

      So, in order to disagree with the way my country is handling things, I need to join the military, which our bungling country has absolute control over?

      Yeah, nah. You're an idiot.

      I agree. As a wounded soldier I saw these things first hand. Our country lacks the patriotism necessary to win the war in Afghanistan, and our people lack the stomach to fight this war the way it needs to be fought.

      Remember that our military is an all-volunteer military. No one is forced to join. People join in for different reasons. Some want the adventure. Some want to travel. Some want the future benefits. Some join in because of family tradition. Some want the prestige of being called "marine" or a "screaming eagle." In other words, patriotism is not the only reason. I don't think it's the usual reason, either.

      To all those who leap to denouche our soldiers... Our soldiers are us. Our politicians are not us. Old men start the wars, and young men are expected to die in them. If you don't like the news, kick out the politicians who sell out to the corporations who sponsor the wars. Denouncing our soldiers is not only mean-spirited, it is downright ignorant.

    In Europe over 50% of the civilians doesn't buy the USA gouvernments statements, we get sceptical whenever we read "according to US officials".

    War on Terror is a fake and look how scared and paranoid your gouvernment got you all, haha.
    US policy is just stupid they should focus on the problems in their own country. The USA lost their credibility all over the world...

      Your credibility is deteriorated by bad grammar. How on earth do you think the War on Terror is false? It must be the "fake" bombings accross Europe. The Madrid and London bombings were certainly perpetrated by clever actors and stooges from the U.S. All those dead civilians must have been mannequins with fake gore...hollywood level thinking right? It could never be gross ideologies stuck in the 6th century still commiting acts of barbarism and negating human rights.

      Your ignorance is as disgusting as your purile and padantic mind.

        I think there is enough evidence from 9/11, and 7/7 to at least warrant further investigation. Just beleiving the US government or any government seems foolish since they have lied to us so many times, Im scared they might tell us the truth soon.

      Following on the American lives and efforts that saved Europe from barbaric Nazism, and after the Marshall Plan using huge amounts of American money to keep Europe free and boost its economy, the U.S. invested prodigiously in a military shield to protect Europe from Soviet and other aggression; and during these many years European countries cynically used their money to make cars and other merchandise and neglected to defend themselves by having any up to date military worthy of the name.

    This War on Terror will bankrupt this country while the baddies will just sneak in thru our southern border and plan attacks on the homeland. Defend our homeland, the USA, in the USA and let these idiots in these other countries start blowing up the Chinese, Europeans and Russians and see what happens then. Also, just like Libya, Yemen and now Somalia, War Powers Act, anyone??? Are we ever going to follow our constituion, RepuliCrats??? I pray that Ron Paul pulls an upset next year and we can finally leave the Middle East and defend our own borders for a change.

      The War Power's Act is not an amendment to the Constitution. It is a law passed by a weary congress after the excesses of Lindon B Johnson and Nixon. And it should be challenged in court as being unconstitutional. The President is the commander and chief of the military and there is nothing in the constitution that limits that power, other than Congress' power of the purse. So constitutionally, if Congress wants to hem in a war, they just don't fund it. Done.

      "Religion" is not the root casue of human conflict, it is just the convienient rationalization of the ancient monkey-instinct to murder your neighbor and steal his territory. Those who can defer all moral judgements to the great Alpha-Ape in the Sky never have to answer to their own conscience– if any.

    I wonder sometimes how are airstrikes justified on non-military targets... non-military meaning these people have no military equipment outside for firearms.... which means NO means of actually defending themselves against air attacks... this is terrorism on the behalf of the U.S, and this is why these Taliban/Al Queda etc. groups will find it justified to fight even more...

      You can't engage a target from the air unless the target has the proper weapons to defend itself from air attack? You are inventing new rules of warfare.

      Really?? So THAT's why they don't like us??? A code of honor that we should abide by, that they don't? I'm sure they thought to themselves on 9/11 "I really shouldn't crash this plane into the twin towers, since the people in the towers lack air defense capabilities". These cowards prefer to kill unarmed innocents, such as in Mumbai, or throwing grenades into a school in Afghanistan, this week.

      They don't have air defense capabilities because they're ignorant. We need to destroy them by any means at our disposal.

      And one more thing. Calling it "Terrorism" is ignorant. Killing armed militants who are planning, or in the process, of attacking a civilian population is not terrorism. What these dirtbags would have done if we didn't give them their virgins would have been terrorism. We're at war with these animals and it goes on until they're extinct. \\

      BTW, I can't imagine you avoid using bug spray when you find cockroaches in your kitchen, even though the roaches don't have means to defend against bug spray. Same principal...

      George Bush started the unnecessary war in Iraq (wasting/stealing trillions), and blew the necessary war in Afghanistan. He is responsible for the return of the Taliban, and now the American people are ready to cut and run just like Vietnam. The surge was wise and effective. The attacks in Yemen and Pakistan have been very effective. The action in Libya is wise, and will rid us of a dangerous fruitcake and possibly yield a stable and prosperous North Africa. Obama ‘s actions were wise and we should embrace them. We are now winning in all categories, instead of losing as under Bush.

        I thought I was all alone in thinking Bush started this, not Obama. Nice to know someone else can remember more than 3 years. At one point Obama said he'd pull out quickly, and has gotten a lot of criticism for not doing that; I'd give him credit for learning and adapting to reality. Now if only the media would quit trying to imply the whole $14 trillion debt is Obama's.

        The surge will ultimately be a waste in Iraq. The moment we pull out, Sadr and his Mahdi army will pounce and Iraq will spiral out of control with Iran the big winner. Joe Biden actually suggested a few years back that Iraq should divide 3 ways, Sunni, Shia or Shite and Kurds. If that had happened and we backed the Kurds, we could have come out okay but instead, disaster awaits. Afghanistan will turn out just about as bad too.

    I wish to see the day Sudan, Somalia start ending their meaningless wars and start developing economically, I feel the world powers need to force the fighting sides to sit down and come up with a govt of equal representation from both sides.

    Once that is done, the world powers can agree to give them incentives for development, like farm land in exchange for roads, and other infrastructure. If the terrorists are not tamed they will become the world’s problem.

    I remember I was in Kenya, when the US embassy was bombed, and I found it unfair, why in Kenya, if they have a problem with the US then do it in the US not here in Kenya, this issue damaged our tourism industry, caused loses, and impacted on our image to which we had to pay for.

      The world powers are making too much money off of wars in countries like Sudan and Somalia. Why would they broker peace when they're doing such a good business selling them military hardware? Their own governments should have easily been able to keep insurgencies down, but with hardware like machine guns, anti tank and anti aircraft missiles, and even armored vehicles made available to their own insurgent people, even some of these national governments are finding themselves challenged to meet the opposition. Those weapons come from Europe, Asia, and yes, even the United States; so what "world power" is going to broker peace?

    Just force them to form a government, get the world leaders to do that, include equal representation from both the fighting sides, once this has been done, offer them incentives to give up terrorism, and assist them with economic and infrastructural development so that they can have a whole new meaning to life in Somalia.

    Constantly having to deal with terrorists costs us money, troops lives... let us try and solve the problem at the root level, if not, then we shall have to accept asylum seekers, and no nation can afford that anymore.

      I understand that Republicans would strongly support theses military operations, but i have to say one thing. Please raise taxes on the rich so they can pay for these high-grade weaponry. US National Debt is rising! the rich and wealthy have to help chip in !

        the top 10% of the rich in the US pay 75% of the taxes...i think they are doing their part.

        Josh, the rich do pay a disproportionate part of the taxes, but they control and distort the economic system and use it to cheat the middle class. Just look at the recent recession. The rich caused it, increased, and got richer while the middle class were ruined. Taxes on the rich are at a century long low.

      This is what you do to fight trans-national terrorism! President Obama has been the terrorist's worst nightmare. If you want to play the dove role bring Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld back for a trial. Other than contractors like Haliburton, nobody benefited from the Republican's strategic initiatives. Obama gets them where they live!

        Larry, you have it right! The Bush administration and friends used the war on terror as an excuse to rip the country off of billions of dollars. Their actions were mostly ineffective, but I don't think they cared that much. They just milked it.

    Somewhere between the "nuke em all" fruitcakes and the "be nice to the poor terrorists" fruitcakes, there is an island of sane moderates. Thankfully THIS president of the united states is one of the sane moderates.

      But with the hatchet jobs Palin, Bachmann, and the rest of the Republicans (and even a few Democrats) are doing on him, supported strongly by Fox Commentary (do they actually have any news programs?) and to a lesser extent, CNN, I don't expect to have a sane moderate in the White House a couple years from now. I'm not sure Obama is really a moderate, but he's certainly closer than anyone else has been in the White House for a long time.

      I was thinking the same thing, too. "It's not secret anymore." It seems to me that some U.S. officials need to be reminded of the National Security Oath and security clearances. If discovered, these officials should be fired and lose all clearances.

    With the U.S. trying to plug all of the increasing worldwide holes in its "security" dikes it eventually will collapse of bankruptcy and exhaustion as other empires historically have done. The more the U.S. launches such attacks on other countries' territory the more that serves as a means for anti-American groups to recruit operatives.

        You're actually right, Lloyd. I was very much against Reagan pulling the troops out of Lebanon after the attack on the barracks. Look how it emboldened them to strike us again and again. We should have invaded Syria and taken out Assad. Perhaps had we done that at the time, Syria wouldn't be seeking nukes and slaughtering its peacefully protesting people today.

        Hey buddy, those Marines were murdered, one – because of a rabid Islamic savage and two- because the Dems ordered that the Marine guards not have clips in their M-16's. Seems the Dems didn't want to "offend" the Muzzies. Look it up if you don't believe me.

        Yeah Wrong: Reagan’s failure wasn’t the bombing of an embassy, it was a Marine expeditionary force *(i.e. a mismanagement of military personnel in a conflict). He put them in an indefensible position. His error. Flyboy: Reagan was in charge, the Dems couldn’t order anything. Who gave that crazy order? I’m pretty sure it was the Marine commanders, not any politician. Sorry, Flyboy.

    Did they get Congressional approval first? It seems to me that we made the first strike on Somalia long before 90 days ago so why aren't the Republicans ranting about the War Powers Act? For that matter, why haven't they said anything about strikes in Pakistan and Yemen? We have been hitting targets in those countries far longer than in Libya so where is the outrage from Congress? You don't suppose that all of the brouhaha from Congress could be another partisan attack by Republicans do you?

      @ steve harnack – In case you've forgotten, it was the Democrats who first put up a fuss over President Obama authorizing military action in Libya. Several Republicans actually supported him, then joined the Democrats when he wouldn't ask for congressional authorization per the War Powers Act. As for the military action in Somalia, it's on a much smaller scale than Libya, for one, and doesn't involve the United Nations yet, as well as the fact that it's just coming out in the news, so Congress hasn't had time to react yet.
