White House: Military is fighting terrorism in Somalia and Yemen – CNN

From Libya, to DOMA, Immigrants, and now this below, the Pres is using Executive Power when he should be making the case to Congress and the American People.  He’s going to lose it all because the issue will be abuse of Executive Powers and not the matters at hand.
For the first time, the Obama administration has publicly stated that U.S. military forces are engaged in direct action against suspected terrorists in Yemen and Somalia.
In a letter to Congress on Friday, President Barack Obama informed lawmakers of U.S. military actions in the two nations that have seen significant terrorist activity and civil unrest.
On Somalia, the president stated, "In a limited number of cases, the U.S. military has taken direct action in Somalia against members of al Qaeda, including those who are also members of al-Shabaab, who are engaged in efforts to carry out terrorist attacks against the United States and our interests."
Obama noted that U.S. forces have been working with Yemen to dismantle al Qaeda's powerful affiliate there.
