Obama administration to create new task force to hunt terrorists worldwide – report

Recommended Posts

The outgoing administration is reportedly seeking to create a new special operations task force that would use the elite Joint Special Operations Command’s experience to carry out clandestine activities all across the globe as an independent entity.

The proposal includes transformation of the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) from being a strike tool employed by US Army’s regional commands into a key part of a new multi-agency intelligence force, Washington Post reported. 

Referred to as the ‘Counter-External Operations Task Force,’ or Ex-Ops, the new organization would act globally with the stated goal of targeting terrorists beyond conventional conflict zones like Syria or Libya, according to Obama administration officials who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Hmm... I thought we already had this. Was wondering why it was never used when that tactic would beat what they're pretending they're doing (Obama).  And why now? He's outta here in less than 2 months.

What concerns me is that under the auspices of his new organization, members (assuming US military) would not fall under the restriction of Posse Comittatus if it were deemed necessary to operate inside US borders.

Obama needs to put his phone and pen in a box and call the movers.  I wonder if anyone told him he is going to be homeless in less than 60 days. He's been fired.

Barry and Mooshelle should start packing up their personal belongings because if they don't, Im pretty sure Trump will throw their crap on the White House lawn on Jan 20th and have a garage sale. Just sayin....LOL

This gung ho world police attitude - america, f**k yeah!! is obviously going to cost a small fortune, of tax payer $$$$$. Wouldn't it be wonderful if the good 'ol boys did something amazing instead, like trying to help with Fukushima?? surely a few billion$$ thrown at that problem would be a boon to humanity, rather than chasing imaginary terrorist in far away places??

but hey, there gonna look real cool in their spiffy uniforms and tricked out Humvee's, so why not, eh?
