 Al-Qaeda operative Abu Anas al-Libi, seized by U.S. commandos in Libya over the weekend, is being interrogated while in military custody on a Navy ship in the Mediterranean Sea, officials said. Abu Anas, 49, was indicted in New York in 2000 on charges of conspiring with Bin Laden in plots to attack U.S. forces in Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Somalia, as well as in the 1998 bombings of the U.S. embassies in Nairobi, Kenya, and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, which killed 224 people.

U.S. Navy SEALs carried out an overnight raid on the Somali home of a leader of the al-Qaeda-linked group al-Shabab which had attacked a shopping mall in neighboring Kenya, but the militant was not seized, U.S. officials said.

These terrorists have to know there will never be peace or security for them. And under the Obama administration---there hasn't been.

I hear you.
i don't think the jihadists are looking for peace or security. They may be more content with being sacrificed for the ascendency of radical Islam.

LHwrites said...

Maybe, but I think when they are sacrificing themselves at their choosing, and taking out others, or in the process of such, they are content. I think when they are blasted, or captured, at home, or at a meeting, they are not so happy about it.

Bruce said...

Yes, indeed. We are in complete agreement.
