U.S. strikes at Al-Qaeda targets in Somalia

goodnews.gifThe United States military has taken time out from the diversion in Iraq to fight the actual war on terror. Bravo.

A U.S. Air Force AC-130 gunship conducted a strike Monday against two suspected Al-Qaeda operatives in Somalia. No one seems to be sure whether or not the mission succeeded.

The operatives are believed to be responsible for the 1998 bombings in Kenya and Tanzania, which left 241 people dead, as well as 2002 attacks on Israeli tourists in Kenya and the attempted downing of an Israeli aircraft the same day.

The Ethiopian military swept into Somalia last month and removed the Islamic government that had reputedly harbored al-Qaida operatives. (Source: MSNBC)
