U.S. Navy assists al qaida dirtbag in search for martyrdom.

USS Chafee
I hope they got him and he suffered an agonizingly slow death. It is not often I see my hard earned tax dollars being spent so wisely.

NBC, 1 June 2007
NEW YORK — The U.S. Navy struck several suspected terrorist cells along the northern coast of Somalia Friday evening, according to NBC News.
U.S. officials told NBC News that the U.S. destroyer USS Chafee fired 20 five-inch rounds at two or three targets, including the country’s chief al-Qaida operative who is believed to be responsible for the 1998 bombing of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania.
The primary target of the strike was Fazul Abdullah Mohammad, leader of the East Africa cell of al-Qaida and mastermind behind 1998 U.S. embassy attacks in Nairobi, Kenya, Dar es Salaam and Tanzania, resulting in more than 200 deaths.
Mohammad is also believed to be responsible for the 2002 attack on an Israeli-owned hotel in Mobassa, Kenya, and an attempted shootdown of an Israel charter airliner. He is on the most wanted list and believed to be one of the most “effective al-Qaida operatives left in the world.”
Two to three others with Mohammad are believed to have assisted in the embassy bombings.
According to officials, the U.S. military had “actionable intelligence” to strike and that the strikes were ordered in fear that the suspects would leave the area.
Senior U.S. officials said it is not “altogether known” what the damage assessment is or if the suspects were killed or wounded in the attack.

  1. I can already see the CNN headlines: U.S. Navy Kills Hundreds of Innocent Women and Children at One of the Most Holiest Mosques in Somalia…

    BTW – Why is it always, “one of the most holiest mosques?” Just once, I would like to hear the press say, “one of the least holiest mosques.”

    I had to laugh when I saw this dirtbag was “one of the most effective al-Qaida operatives left in the world.” Well he didn’t see this coming did he? I guess the “average” al-Qaida operatives need an underwear change.
