WASHINGTON - U.S. forces have launched a series of airstrikes in Somalia
against suspected members of al-Qaida, according to ABC News.
A U.S. official confirmed to ABC News that some high-value, al-Qaida
targets were attacked in Somalia.  The men who were targeted are
suspected of being involved in the 1998 U.S. Embassy bombings in Kenya
and Tanzania, which killed more than 250 people. 
A military official told ABC News that an AC-130 gunship left its base
in Djibouti at the Horn of Africa, flew to the southern tip of Somalia
and was able to attack these men because they were in an open area.
There is confirmation that targets were hit on the ground, but it is
unknown if the al-Qaida members were killed.
ABC News has also learned that quietly, the U.S. military has moved the
U.S.S. Eisenhower to the waters off Somalia to make sure that no
al-Qaida members are able to flee Somalia.
The White House on Monday night would not confirm the incident. Air
Force Lt. Col. Todd Vician, a Defense Department spokesman, said he
could neither confirm nor deny the reports of an airstrike. 
Air Force AC-130 gunships are heavily armed aircraft with elaborate
sensors that can go after discreet targets - day or night. They are
operated by the Special Operations Command and have been used heavily
against the Taliban in Afghanistan.
Somalia's effective central government fell in 1991, when clan-based
warlords overthrew a military dictator and then turned on each other.
The government was formed two years ago with the help of the United
Nations, but has been weakened by internal rifts.
Soldiers loyal to Somalia's U.N.-backed government and Ethiopia's
military late last month drove out a radical Islamic group that had been
in control of the country for six months.
The U.S. has believed for years that a group of al-Qaida operatives has
been hiding in Somalia.

Now I'm wondering whether your birds will be interdicting Iranian supply
lines to Iraq in coming months.
Wish I were back afloat myself.  Kick ass, man.
