One operation took place early Saturday in the Libyan capital of Tripoli, when U.S. forces captured Abu Anas al Libi, an al Qaeda leader wanted for his role in the deadly 1998 bombings of two U.S. embassies in Africa.

In the second raid, a team of U.S. Navy SEALs in southern Somalia targeted the top leader of Al-Shabaab, a terrorist group linked with al Qaeda.

      Why does CNN allow this idiot above to blog in here? We're all trying to have an intelligent discussion here and this creep is trying to spoil it for the rest of us!

    This is just more evidence of just how much stupidity there is in Washington D.C. these days! These idiots shut the government down, hurting millions of people in the process and yet find enough money to fight all these useless wars of theirs! Since they captured an alleged Al Qaeda leader in Libya, they're going to have another one of their stupid field days again! How repulsive this is!
