RUSH: A US air strike, AC-130 gunships, ladies and gentlemen, “hit targets in southern Somalia where Islamic militants were believed to be sheltering suspects in the 1998 bombings of two US embassies. Many people reported killed. Monday’s attack is the first overt military action by [us] in Somalia since the 1990s,” i.e., Black Hawk Down, “although it was not clear if they were American or Ethiopian aircraft. It was not known if there are any casualties…” Yes, it is now known that there were casualties and some pretty high up Al-Qaeda figures bought the dust.
“Two helicopters fired several rockets toward the road that leads to the Kenyan border. The aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower arrived off Somalia’s coast and launched intelligence-gathering missions over Somalia. Three other warships conducting are anti-terror operations,” even as we speak, off the Somali coast. This, ladies and gentlemen, is more like it!
