    Top Somali militant killed in U.S. operation, Pentagon says

    Pentagon: Top Somali militant killed in U.S. operation - CNN.com

    (CNN) -- Ahmed Godane, the leader of the Somali militant group Al-Shabaab, was killed this week in a U.S. military operation, the Pentagon said Friday.

    "The U.S. military undertook operations against Godane on Sept. 1, which led to his death. Removing Godane from the battlefield is a major symbolic and operational loss to Al-Shabaab," said Pentagon press secretary Rear Adm. John Kirby.

    On Monday, U.S. military conducted a strike in the African country targeting Godane, who had pledged allegiance to al Qaeda. He headed Al-Shabaab as it terrorized East Africa, killing Somali officials, aid workers and others in a spate of suicide bombings. Godane allegedly was behind 2013's deadly siege of a Nairobi, Kenya, shopping mall.
    Awesome!!!

    So Obama's not a dove, yeah. Lets see if the Right gives him credit on this, or is AWOL, or finds criticism.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    I give credit where it is due: To those who risked their lives.

    But plenty of criticism when you think there's not enough droning.
