Task Force- Horn of Africa

Special forces are in the East of Africa helping the local governments root out Al Quaeda. The extra judicial killings are worrying- these are the guys who used an armed Predator against a car full of suspects- but it does seem a far better idea than a full scale invasion of a country that can hardly shoot back and has no proveable connection to AQ.

Meanwhile, the meme about cargo ships laden with NBCs is taking hold.

an alternative “al-Qa’ida navy”, thought to number some 20 ships, which are suspected of supplying arms and explosives to terrorist groups, was already being monitored.
