US forces attack Somalia target

Al-Qaeda suspect involved in bombings of US embassies is said to be the target.


    The destroyer's guns appeared to be targeting a single person, perhaps moving in a convoy, according to the report.

        

    The United States launched air strikes in Somalia in January targeting three top al-Qaeda suspects but killing their allies instead, US officials have said.

        

    Those suspects also were wanted for the embassy bombings, which killed 240 people.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
