US Commando Raids Target Islamist Leaders In Africa

US commando raids target Islamist leaders in Africa
5 October 2013 Last updated at 22:18 ET

Anas al-Libi Al-Libi has been on the FBI's most wanted list



US special forces have carried out two separate raids in Africa targeting senior Islamist militants, American officials say.

In Libya, US commandos captured an al-Qaeda leader accused of the 1998 bombings of the US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania.

Anas al-Libi was reportedly seized in the capital Tripoli.

And a leader of the al-Shabab group was targeted in southern Somalia, but that raid appears to have failed.

The al-Shabab leader - who has not been identified - is suspected of involvement in last month's attack in the Westgate shopping centre in Kenya's capital Nairobi, which left at least 67 people dead.

Anas al-Libi's relatives and US officials said he had been seized in the Libyan capital early on Saturday.

He was parking outside his house when three vehicles encircled him, his car's window was smashed and his gun was seized before he was taken away, his brother Nabih was quoted as saying by AP.

He added that Libi's wife wife also saw the attack, describing the abductors as foreign-looking "commandos".

The raid was conducted with the knowledge of the Libyan government, a US official was quoted as saying by CNN.

US officials later said that the suspect was no longer in Libya, without elaborating further.

The 49-year-old is believed to be one of the masterminds of the 1998 US embassy attacks, which killed more than 220 people in Kenya and Tanzania.

He has been indicted in New York's court in connection with the attacks.

Libi - whose real name is Nazih Abdul-Hamed al-Ruqai- has been on the FBI's most wanted list for more than a decade with a $5m (£3.1m) bounty on his head.

Al-Qaeda's leadership has been consistently targeted since the killing of Osama Bin Laden by US special forces in 2011 in Pakistan.

Meanwhile, the US defence department confirmed that special forces had carried out a seaborne in the southern coastal town of Barawe.

Pentagon spokesman George Little said the forces "were involved in a counter-terrorism operation against a known al-Shabab terrorist". He declined to provide any further details.

Initial reports in the US media quoted unnamed US officials as saying that the suspect had been captured or killed by US Navy Seals in Somalia in the pre-dawn raid.

However, the officials later said that the Seals failed to find the intended target, who was not identified.

"The Barawe raid was planned a week and a half ago," a US security official told the New York Times.

"It was prompted by the Westgate attack," added the official, who was speaking on the condition of anonymity.

Al-Shabab earlier told the BBC that "white soldiers" had arrived by boat in Barawe and rebels had repulsed them, losing a fighter.

Local group commander Mohamed Abu Suleiman said the raid had failed and the group remained in control of Barawe.

Both Britain and Turkey deny al-Shabab claims that their forces were involved in the operation.

Barawe residents said say they were woken up by heavy fighting before dawn.

"Gunfire broke out for about 10-15 minutes," an eyewitness told AFP news agency.

Al-Shabab has said it carried out the attack in the Westgate shopping centre in Nairobi on 21 September.

I don't know--try to kill some bad guys before we leave. Hope your son comes back safe, but I'm not sure he knows everything either.

No he doesn't nor does he claim to. He now travels from FOB to FOB and works in high tech surveillance. He is still at risk but not near as much as he was on his active dudy tours. He is going to complete his last contractors tour at the end of this year. He has put his wife through college and will return to finish his schooling. He has been in theater solid for the last 3 years and that is not counting his active time before. As a former Ranger and a contractor doing multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan he does have an inside perspective as to what has gone on there and is going on there. I usually remain silent when I read people talking like they are in the know...BRC types. Anyway thanks for the well wishes for my son~

Yet, not a word out of the neo-con masses in this forum. It would seem that they would like this, but, I guess if they like something Obama does, that means they get Obama cuties.

Probably because conservatives would do all they could to make it public.

Obama (smartly) downplaying raids and covert ops for two reasons:

1) Left is anti-war and anti-conflict. Keep it on the down low.

2) It's hard for fight club to work if you talk about fight club...

Are you really this clueless? You seriously think the President doesnt have to order the drone attacks outside of the Afghanistan battlefield?

You really think this? The DOD is going into foreign countries without authorization from the President and killing people? Publicly?

You really are a stupid man.

His is a phony and a shitbag. Because this site is attached to a football team people will overlook these things because he roots for the same millionaire's as the many here do playing a ****ing game. Maybe they have shared a beer at a tailgate or whatever. Either way **** him and what he stands for~

Obama is a pathetic mismanager of our foreign policy. Greasing a few high profile targets in no way makes up for his loss of Iraq and the likely repeat in Afghanistan. Both wars will end up being huge wastes of American blood and treasure because Obama blew the follow through and is going to let our adversaries win the long game. And that's just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to his screwups in the Middle East. Worst President of our lifetimes.
