US Navy Seals kill an Al-Shabaab bigwig inside of Somalia

Seems that Obama is going to take these Al-Shabaab jihadists seriously. If any more Somali youths (former refugees)* get the big idea of joining Al-Shabaab in Africa maybe this will give them pause. From Fox News thanks to Blulitespecial.
Navy Seals from U.S. Special Operations Forces conducted a raid in southern Somalia on Monday that killed Saleh Ali Saleh Nabhan, one of 4 co-conspirators wanted in the 2002 bombing of an Israel owned hotel in Mombasa, Kenya, two senior U.S. military officials told FOX News.
Ten days ago President Obama signed the Execute Order for Nabhan, who since 2006 was on the FBI’s list of most wanted terrorists. He was also wanted for the attacks on the U.S. Embassy in Kenya in 1998.
Two MH-6 Little Bird helicopters deployed from one of two U.S. Navy vessels near Somalia’s coast strafed a vehicle Nabhan was using to go back and forth between meetings. Intelligence operatives had been monitoring Sabhan prior to the attack. The helicopters passed once, firing on the vehicle, and then circled back around to retrieve the body so they could make a positive identification, according to one official.
Nabhan’s group Somali, Al- Shabaab, has links to Al Qaeda.
He, he, he! I wonder if Al-Amriki will be next?
For new readers:
The US State Department has admitted over 80,000 Somali refugees to the US in the last 25 years and then last year had to suspend family reunification because widespread immigration fraud was revealed through DNA testing.
We have been following the case of Somali “youths” being recruited to join Al- Shabaab since last November, here.
