Obama extends global reach of US Special Operations death squads

monster

I made this years ago. Prescient?

(As coincidence would have it, the day after ObamaGod authorizes global death squad rights for President Tiny Hands to enjoy, some general JUST HAPPENS to “find” a Big Book of “ISIS” plots and plans in Syria. Like an assassination target catalogue of some kind. What a damned coincidence, huh? Kill anybody, anywhere at any time in the name of our “national interests” and all you have to do is pull up the catalogue and say “See? It’s right there. Page 81b” and you’re fine.)

In major actions reported only briefly by the establishment press, President Obama has given vast new scope to the Pentagon’s Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), authorizing it to carry out assassinations across the globe.

The units of JSOC have long been employed by the chiefs of the six major regional military commands, such as Centcom, which covers the Middle East and Central Asia, to conduct counter-terrorism operations. One such unit, Seal Team Six, carried out the assassination of Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden in May 2011.

Obama has approved a proposal to give JSOC independent authority to operate outside the regional commands, essentially as a globalized assassination force. JSOC units will bypass the regional commanders and report directly to Special Operations Command (SOCOM) in the Pentagon.

According to the Washington Post, “The missions could occur well beyond the battlefields of places like Iraq, Syria and Libya, where Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) has carried out clandestine operations in the past. When finalized, it will elevate JSOC from being a highly-valued strike tool used by regional military commands to leading a new multi-agency intelligence and action force.”

The mandate of the new formation, to be called the “Counter-External Operations Task Force,” or Ex-Ops in Pentagon jargon, will embrace the entire planet. This means US military death squads could be sent to virtually any location, from European cities to South American jungles, including the United States itself.

According to the Post, a reorganization making counter-terrorism an independent, global command has been discussed in the Pentagon for 15 years, since the 9/11 terrorist attacks, but it was always rejected…

  1. “One such unit, Seal Team Six, carried out the assassination of Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden in May 2011.”
    This must have been the hardest mission ever. It is known that it is a lot harder to kill a dead man than a live one. Ghosts are lot more slippery.

  2. All bells went off when that oh so conveniently found How To workbook of ISIS EU war plans just happened to be printed in English.
