The information presented below is disgusting on a number of fronts.
If there is a leak in our special operations plans, why not send Bryan Williams to have flood lights set up to greet our warriors when they arrived.
- All Special Operations missions are secret, failed or not.
- It was printed first in the Guardian a U.K. magazine.
- Facebook provided pictures of the operators.
- Pictures of the operators faces are clearly shown.
- Thou not proven, I’m left with a sinking feeling that this information was leaked by the Obama administration, no friends to our military.
The US Special Forces have deployed a 20-man squad to Libya, only to be told to leave. The top secret mission was revealed when Libya’s air force published a photo on their Facebook account which shows arriving off 20 US commandos at Wattiya airbase.
The members of US Special Operations Forces disembarked “in combat readiness.”
Facebook post, accompanied by four pictures, said 20 armed soldiers in plain clothes arrived at Wattiya airbase wearing bulletproof jackets.
The Pentagon didn’t officially confirm the mission, but according to the Guardian, their sources from Pentagon confirmed the US had sent a special forces unit to Libya as part of a mission.
According to the Libyan Air Force, the soldiers arrived at the airbase on Monday, but they were forced to leave soon after local commanders told them they had no right to be at the base “without prior coordination with protection force base.”
Shortly after, they published a Facebook post on Wednesday which included a photo gallery of alleged US Special Forces disembarked “in combat readiness wearing bullet proof jackets, advanced weapons, silencers, handguns, night vision devices and GPS devices.”
The photographs show three men armed with assault rifles, boarding a blue-and-white-striped passenger plane and driving a yellow dune buggy.
According to the Associated Press, the mission failed in the dawn of a closing United Nations-sponsored deal to form a government in the war-torn country signed by Libya’s rival parliaments.
Libya has been in chaos ever since Colonel Muammar Gaddafi was overthrown by NATO-backed rebels in 2011 shortly after “Arabic spring”.
The Guardian reported that the embarrassing incident marks the first confirmed deployment of American forces to Libya since July of last year when “Delta Force commandos seized Ahmed Abu Khattala, now on trial in New York accused of the 2012 killing of US Ambassador Chris Stevens.”
Libya has become a terrorist’s safe heaven in recent months after groups related to ISIS have taken a significant percent of the territory.
According to some reports, the leader of so-called Islamic State, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has moved to Sirth, the town on Libyan coast controlled by militants.
