Deployment fail: US special ops forces arrive in Libya, immediately told to leave

Libya’s air force said in a Facebook post that 20 US commandoes arrived at Wattiya airbase and disembarked “in combat readiness,” only to be told to leave. Pentagon sources confirmed the US had sent a special forces unit to Libya as part of a mission.

The Libyan Air Force said the 20 soldiers arrived at the airbase on Monday, but left soon after local commanders asked them to go because they had no right to be at the base “without prior coordination with protection force base.”

The Libyan air force published a Facebook post on Wednesday which included photographs of the special forces unit. It noted the 20 soldiers had disembarked “in combat readiness wearing bullet proof jackets, advanced weapons, silencers, handguns, night vision devices and GPS devices.”

When questioned by Libyan soldiers, the American troops said they were “in coordination with other members of the Libyan army,” the Libyan Air Force said. The Libyans were unconvinced.

Good. Let Libya handle its own troubles.

America has become the laughing stock of the world. 

"America has become the laughing stock of the world" ?  If your statement is true, then it's because we the people have allowed the COMMAND AND CONTROL of our Great Nation to fall in to the hands of the self-serving assholes, lawyers that make up  the professional politicians in congress.  It's because we the people haven't taken the time to watch and supervise the idiots that we ELECT to positions of authority.  If you won't stand behind our military then stand in front of them!  This FUBAR incident is due to the politicians leading from behind...obamas behind.  If they ever break suction their heads will cave in!

Debra have you EVER served in the Armed Forces?  If you haven't then be considerate and remember that they have to follow stupid orders for deployments, mostly at the whim of the state department and other less than combat ready elements of our military and government.  Regardless, they are the ones guarding the gates at night, keeping the wolves at bay and protecting our Great Country so you and all others can sleep safely!

SEMPER FIDELIS 

It all started with an "Apology Tour" by OGiguesKant.  Prior to seven years ago countries were afraid to do something like that to us for fear of losing foreign and or getting their butts kicked. 

SEMPER FIDELIS

God tells us to help our neighbors but not to meddle in their affairs. To go to my neighbors house and start doing things is not being a good neighbor it is taking over my neighbors property.

Either crush radical Islam in the next 30 days or get all American forces out of harms way!  If we pull our forces out it should be with the admonition: screw with America in the least way, we will vaporize the capital city of the country involved!

If only. These religious terrorists do not claim national affiliation. Just alliegance to a Caliphate to come. So where to send the bombs with loving tenderness?

America's humiliation will grow.

   Yet another Obaboonzo failure. The man is this Nations wrecking ball.

LMAO!

What's my assignment, where do I go, and who do I report to???

This Obama juggernaut is just impossible to stop . . . . running in circles.

The more I think about this the more I wonder how close to being beheaded these spec / ops people were? Do we even know they got out alive?

Sounds like  another agreement made like the Iran deal.   Nobody signs it.   Iran does what they want and Obumo  is chasing  Iran's  behind.     Obumo  is the terrorists best friend.   He and his whole administration need to be tried for treason.

Works for me. And then put in front of a firing squad.

Yikes !!! Ocasio-Cortez: We Need A ‘Multigendered, Multigeographic’ United States

The United States of America needs to be “multigendered” and “multigeographic,” according to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who endorsed fellow socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) at the “Bernie’s Back Rally” in New York on Saturday.

The freshman lawmaker and “Squad” member officially endorsed Sanders during a rally in Queensbridge Park in Long Island City, New York, on Saturday and called for more diversity in the U.S., arguing that it should not only be “multiracial” and “multigenerational” but “multigeographic” and “multigendered.”

“We need a United States that really, truly, and authentically is operated, owned, and decided by working – and all – people in the United States of America,” Ocasio-Cortez said to applause.

“That is what it – it is multiracial, multigendered, multigenerational, and multigeographic,” she said, failing to elaborate on what that specifically looks like.

“We have to come together, not ignoring our differences but listening to them, prioritizing them, understanding injustice,” she continued.

The socialist lawmaker also implied that rampant racism is still alive and well in the U.S., telling the crowd that it is essential to understand “that we operate in a context where slavery evolved into Jim Crow, evolved into mass incarceration, [and] evolved into the realities we have today.”
