The Raid on an Oil Tanker by the Navy SEALS Ordered by Obama Himself




U.S. Navy SEALs boarded and seized control of an oil tanker Sunday night that was held by Libyan rebels off the Cyprus coast.

The mission was approved by President Obama, according a Pentagon press statement.

“The boarding operation, approved by President Obama and conducted just after 10 p.m. EDT on March 16 in international waters southeast of Cypress, was executed by a team of U.S. Navy SEALs attached to Special Operations Command Europe,” Rear Adm. John Kirby, Pentagon Press secretary, said Monday.

The elite special forces seized the tanker – held by three Libyan rebels – after it evaded a naval blockade and the ship sailed out of a Libyan port. The Department of Defense said no one was injured in the operation.

The seizure mission was designed to halt attempts by the rebels to sell petroleum on the global market, and was ordered “at the request of both the Libyan and Cypriot governments,” Kirby said:

Quote

    “The Morning Glory is carrying a cargo of oil owned by the Libyan government National Oil Company. The ship and its cargo were illicitly obtained … The SEAL team embarked and operated from the guided missile destroyer USS Roosevelt (DDG-80). USS Roosevelt provided helicopter support and served as a command and control and support platform for the other members of the force assigned to conduct the mission.”

I would say "YES, Indeed" would be the correct answer. he's going to have their backs before he would think about having our backs.

The headline says "Ordered" by Obama as if he was sitting in a tall leather chair at the head if a table full of national security and Military brass and who launched His daring plan.   The correct term is "authorize".   They were going to board by force a ship flying another countrie's flag, and that would require an executive level authorization. It is protocol.

It was stolen from a Libyan port a few weeks ago so we just stole it back for the Libyan governement  - or someone. No one really knows who the ship belongs to, it was flying a NK flag, but now NK says we know nothing about any ship........ so  :shrug: :shrug: :shrug:

Even Fox News has been saying all day that Obama "ordered" the "highly successful raid."

To the media, Obama is their master so he 'ordered' to them.
