Yesterday, we received reports that U.S. Navy SEALs killed the leader of al-Shabaab who was linked to the Kenyan Mall massacre. Reports have been confirmed that it was Navy SEAL Team Six who carried out the raid and killed the Al-Shabaab leader.
Hours later, U.S. Special Forces Group, Delta Force, captured a senior al-Qaeda leader in Libya. The terrorist leader, Abu Anas al-Libi, had a $5 Million price on his head after being indicted in 2000 for the 1998 U.S. Embassy bombings.
Daily Mail reported:
Hours after the operation in Somalia, Delta Force – the Army’s most elite Special Forces unit – pulled al-Qaeda terrorist Abu Anas al-Libi off the streets of Tripoli, Libya, as he was arriving for morning prayers.
Al-Libi had a $5million price on his head after he was indicted by federal prosecutors in 2000. He is believed to have suggested bombing the Nairobi embassy and performed surveillance in advance of the attack.
The twin bombings of the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, killed 224 people, including 12 Americans, and injured more than 4,0000 in August 1998. Al-Qaeda, under the leadership of Osama bin Laden, carried out the attacks in response to the American peacekeeping mission in Mogadishu, Somalia.
No U.S. troops were inured in either raid.
The pair of daring operations in Africa, carried out by the best-equipped and most heavily trained commandos in the United States, come a week and a half after al-Shabab terrorists slaughtered 67 people during a massacre at the upscale Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi.
