US Government Reminds Of "Al Qaeda Threat" With Twin Libyan, Somali Raids

Tyler Durden's picture


The US government's foreign policy appears to be most effective when it is shut down. First, we learned that the CIA has accelerated its training and weapons supply of Syria's Al-Qaeda insurgents only after the funding for the non-critical government functions was halted. Then, overnight, John Kerry showed that while he gives to Al-Qaeda with one hand he takes from it with two following two U.S. raids in Libya and Somalia that captured an Islamist wanted for bombing its Nairobi embassy 15 years ago. These actions "show Washington's determination to hunt down al Qaeda leaders around the globe" Secretary of State John Kerry said on Sunday. So in 15 years the then secretary of state will be proud to announce that Al-Qaeda leaders operating in and around Syria, armed with US weapons, have also been captured. And so the wheel will keep on turning.

Reuters has more on the overnight raids:

Libyan Nazih al-Ragye, better known by the cover name Abu Anas al-Liby, was seized by U.S. forces in Tripoli on Saturday, the Pentagon said. A seaborne raid on the Somali port of Barawe, a stronghold of the al Shabaab movement behind last month's attack on a Kenyan mall, failed to take or kill its target.


"We hope this makes clear that the United States of America will never stop in its effort to hold those accountable who conduct acts of terror," Kerry said during a visit to Bali.


"Those members of al Qaeda and other terrorist organizations literally can run but they can't hide," Kerry said. "We will continue to try to bring people to justice."


The twin raids, two years after a U.S. Navy SEAL team killed al Qaeda founder Osama bin Laden in Pakistan, demonstrated American reach at a time when Islamist militants have been expanding their presence in Africa - not least in Libya following the Western-backed overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi. Libya's government, wary of an Islamist backlash, demanded an explanation for the "kidnapping" of one of its citizens.

Don't hold your breath: the person responsible for providing explanations for US actions abroad is currently on furlough.

What is the important of Liby?

Liby, who the FBI says is 49, has been under U.S. indictment since 2000 for his alleged role in bombing the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998, which killed 224 people. Of more pressing concern for Washington, however, may have been that al Qaeda appears to be establishing itself in Libya today.


With President Barack Obama wrestling with the legal and political difficulties posed by trying al Qaeda suspects held at the U.S. base at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba, Liby may be more likely to face trial in New York, where the indictment was filed.


Liby, who had once been granted political asylum from Gaddafi in Britain, was charged with 20 other people including bin Laden and current al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahri. The U.S. government offered a $5 million reward for helping capture Liby.


Charges relating to him personally accuse him of discussing the bombing of the Nairobi embassy in retaliation for the U.S. intervention in the Somali civil war in 1992-93 and of helping reconnoiter and plan the attack in the years before 1998.

As for Somalia, where fighting erupted at about 3 am on Saturday morning, things did not go quite as planned.

The target of the Somali operation was unclear but a U.S. official was quoted as saying it was planned in response to the Nairobi mall attack two weeks ago in which at least 67 were killed. That highlighted the risk of Somalia's rumbling civil conflict destabilizing a resource-rich continent where Islamists have been on the rise from west to east in recent years.


Launched in the early hours of Saturday, the Somali raid appears to have featured a beach landing in hostile territory that was followed by an extended firefight. U.S. officials said SEALs conducted the raid and had killed al Qaeda-allied al Shabaab fighters while taking no casualties themselves. Somali police said seven people were killed during the operation.


Somalia's Western-backed government, still trying to establish its authority after two decades of civil war, holds little sway in Barawe, 110 miles south of Mogadishu.


Asked of his involvement in the U.S. operation, Prime Minister Abdi Farah Shirdon said: "We have collaboration with the world and with neighboring countries in the battle against al Shabaab."


The Pentagon confirmed U.S. military personnel had been involved in an operation against what it called "a known al Shabaab terrorist," in Somalia, but gave no more details.


Local people in Barawe and Somali security officials said troops came ashore from the Indian Ocean to attack a house near the shore used by al Shabaab fighters.


U.S. officials said troops, to avoid civilian casualties, disengaged after inflicting casualties on al Shabaab. They said no U.S. personnel were wounded or killed in the operation, which one U.S. source said was carried out by a Navy SEAL team.

A Somali intelligence official said the target of the raid at Barawe, about 110 miles south of Mogadishu, was a Chechen commander, who had been wounded and his guard killed. 


One U.S. official, speaking to Reuters on condition of
anonymity, said the al Shabaab leader targeted in the operation was
neither captured nor killed.

Some of the more cynical persuasion prompted pointed out that the US government now needs a distraction (Al-Qaeda raids), from a distraction (the shutdown government), from a distraction (the botched Syrian "liberation" campaign and providing of weapons to Al-Qaeda), from a distraction (the NSA wholesale spying campaign that has Nixon spinning in his grave), from the ultimately reality: the ongoing collapse of the US economy.

Which only means that piecemeal foreign operations must and will continue to remind Americans of the constant "threat" it lives under, until such time as a false flag provocation finally allows the escalation into an all out war somewhere in the world, and with it leads to the much sought after, deficit-boosting military intervention.

these would include student-led organizations.

such as at certain schools whose alumni are now conducting terrist operations.

Mr. Kerry seems a bit confused. He says Al-Qaeda can run but not hide.
The only running I see Al-Qaeda doing, is when they dash as quickly as possible to the next meeting the US sets up with them in Syria, when the US needs to give them cash or weapons.

No...SHEEPFUKKER. Anytime there is a Domestic Upheaval the "Al Qaeda" card is played to serve as DISTRACTION. Just what was going on when Osama bin Laden was supposedly neutralized?


The Government is VAINLY ATTEMPT to demonstrate that they are "USEFUL". It is blatantly obvoiuos to the aware.

The problem is that the Masses are too zombiefied and hypnotized through thier TeeVee to see the illusion. They have no other perspective than that which is spoonfed to them.

How is this our business?



If you are fed up with whats happening with the government - it all stems from one major thing: the government's control of our money.  We have placed in our government the ability to control the money supply and dish out new money to whomever they please (usually their cronies and the banks) and to spend and create that money in infinite amounts to SUPPRESS we, the People.

To break this system we have to bring back real money and thus limit government control over money and our lives.  We can break the system by overwhelming the physical markets and give a no-vote to their control over money - they key is the small silver market.

Join the Silver Pledge - an effort to change the system by having investors join up and buy physical silver - together we can break this market and take back our government.

You can read more here:

If you dont like it dont sign up - but for people who are sick of sitting and doing nothing at least lets work together to BREAK this silver market

There is nothing wrong with telling the truth. The guy's name is Kohn. John Kohn. He kept it that way on purpose, to fool his constituents in Massachusetts into believing that he's an Irish catholic.
It's called "affinity fraud." It's the same technique used by madoff and by the original ponzi himself.

what are you afraid of CH1?  the truth is staring you in the face.   The Jewish identity, like most identities, is a construct.   There is no Jewish race, there never was.   Even Jewish scholars have admitted, there are several different racial groups that claim to belong to the identity construct.  The word "Jew" is a relatively modern creation as well.   its also not difficult to see that much of the current world's legal and economic systems have their roots in talmudic traditions.  when you study the talmud, it should not come as a shock that the world looks like it does now, as the contents are quite racist, supremist, and promote 'situational ethics'.     I would say that the "Jewish" cultural identity is used to mind control (most) of the memebers of the group, as well as to oppress non-members.   the truth is ugly, but better to see it for what it is.

"...In our opinion, and from our experience, there is nothing in South Vietnam, nothing which could happen that realistically threatens the United States of America. And to attempt to justify the loss of one American life in Vietnam, Cambodia, or Laos by linking such loss to the preservation of freedom, which those misfits supposedly abuse, is to us the height of criminal hypocrisy, and it is that kind of hypocrisy which we feel has torn this country apart...."

Substitute Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos with Iraq, Libya and Syria and the result is seeing true hypocrisy courtesy of Kerry himself.

as soon as mom's identity was discovered the MSM went silent

as soon as it was discovered that she had a cult like obsession with Obama the MSM went silent

as soon as the circumstances of her death were discovered the MSM went silent

an unarmed mentally disturbed black woman with child in the car bolted when stopped at a "check point"-  what ensured was movie style car chase by the highly trained Capitol police

spinning wheels, smashups, crashes (by the cop cars) into gates while a terrified  woman tries to get away - she never tried to ram any gates, she never shot at anyone since she had no weapon

clearly lethal force was required to save the members of Congress who were in grave and serious danger


All ZHers, Please join with Representatives Hoyer and Cantor in thanking the Capitol Police for their bravery and heroic actions.


also there is this from the sister of the slain mother

Good drop ZH..

The book surely is closed on this one..accolades bestowed upon first responders (well the ones that acctually made it to the scene), and the only image i remember from this is a smashed up cop car, an image repeated over and over with the headline of a deranged woman (the label applied 2 days later) "crashing " through barriers. and still no sign from that piece of shit Al Sharpton, and still no stupid fucking comments from that piece of shit Obamma

What a tragic travesty

It is a known known that without massive government debt-spending the US economy will collapse, and that much of this spending is hidden in black intelligence programs and displayed openly with Defense Department budgets, and that the global war on terror must continue, under a variety of names, in order for peace to prevail.

Thomas Sowell is an good example of Black Intelligence. That is the first man about which will define it  What about George Washington Carver? There are many others.


What about Neil deGrasse Tyson? He is an Astrophysicist. (He is an atheist but he can reason so there is hope. The empirical evidence must be presented in a way that he understands.)

What about Ronald McNair who died on Space Shuttle Challenger?


I can name more scientists that can think with a lot more depth than you, a shallow minded twit.


You do realize that rascism will get you banned, right?




You must understand thaT I do not like the President for more reasons that I care to emumerate.


He is immoral as he is a BLATANT HOMOSEXUAL.


He is immoral as every word out of his mouth is a lie.


He is immoral as he acts to Murder WITHOUT DUE PROCESS.


In fact he fits almost all of the character traits of the Antichrist.


But I do not give a flying fuck if he were green skinned with pink polka dots, white, black, yellow, or red.


So go autofellate.

Our ``allies`` in Saudi Arabia...

Pravo Slavie - Saudi Mufti Again Calls for Destruction of All Churches on Arabian Penninsula

Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia Abdulaziz Bin Abdullah has once again called for the destruction of all Churches on the Arabian Peninsula.

Bin Abdullah, head of the Ulema Council and the Standing Committee on Fatwas, made this statement after a presentation by the Kuwaiti parliamentarian Osama Al-Munawer of the bill that bans construction of new non-Muslim religious buildings in Kuwait.

The Mufti stated that, according to Islamic law, all churches in the region must be demolished; i.e., Islam is the only legal religion here. The words of Muhammad that "there cannot be two religions on the Arabian peninsula" the head of the Sunni always interprets in favor of Islam.

The Italian Job 
How the Pentagon Is Using Your Tax Dollars to Turn Italy into a Launching Pad for the Wars of Today and Tomorrow 


Which came first, the chicken or the terrorist?  For many in this country, the Kenyan mall horror arrived out of the blue, out of nowhere, out of a place and a time without context. Next thing you know, it’s all 24/7-ing on your TV set. You can’t avoid it.   The idea that there was some history to all of this, that it involved Washington and the U.S. military,secret CIA prisons and covert drone strikes, the funding, supplying, and organizing of proxy African troops, and the thorough destabilizing of Somalia because Washington feared an Islamic group that was actually unifying the country -- out of which al-Shabab (“the youth”) emerged -- seems unbelievable, though it is simple fact.  And here’s a reality that you won’t see on your TV screen 24/7: if al-Shabab is a nightmare, history has joined it to Washington at the hip.  The particular kind of destabilization that gripped Somalia in the post-9/11 years, including a U.S.-inspired Ethiopian invasion and years later a Kenyan version of the same, has now spread to Kenya itself.


This sort of destabilization is now happening across the African continent.  The U.S. military, along with the CIA and U.S. intelligence, is moving more deeply into Africa, and in the process, from Libya to the Central African Republic, it is helping to turn the continent into Terror Central. 

Those scores of FBI agents combing the ruins in Nairobi (as well as the beefed up CIA contingent now dealing with the situation) aren’t the answer to a sudden crisis.  They are signs of a long-term problem; they are the chicken to the terrorist egg -- and which came first almost doesn’t matter anymore.  If you decide that anyone, anywhere, on Earth can be an imminent “danger” to the homeland and you’ve already transformed the very idea of “national” defense into international defense, and nowhere is too far to go to “defend” yourself, then you are always going to be stirring things up in distant places in ways you don’t understand and with a hatful of unintended consequences.   

 Someday, in some unexpected way, the Italian base story will suddenly break big-time in the mainstream and, once again, it will seem to arrive out of the blue, out of nowhere, without any context, and everyone will be shocked, shocked
