FIRE AT WILL

Notorious Al Qaeda Operative the Target in U.S. Strike in Somalia (Fox News, March 03, 2008)

U.S. forces struck an Al Qaeda training camp in southern Somalia Monday, and officials say the target was a notorious Al Qaeda operative whom FOX News has exclusively determined to be Saleh Ali Saleh Nabhan.

Nabhan is wanted for questioning in connection with a hotel resort homicide bombing in Mombasa, Kenya, five years ago, and for a shoulder-fired missile attack on an Israeli passenger liner.

Monday's attack on Nabhan was executed with two missiles fired from a U.S. Navy vessel at sea, off the coast of Somalia, FOX News has learned.


While we contributed to the absence of a sovereign state there, the strike illustrates the free hand we have to attack terrorists in the absence of any recognized government--a lesson for Waziristan.
