USA: More Special Ops for So-Called War on Terrorism

Washington, Jun 30 (Prensa Latina) The U.S. government government pledged to use more especial operations and attacks with unmanned planes in its so-called war on terrorism.

According to the White House plan against the AL Qaeda network, the idea is to use so-called surgical procedures to avoid placing troops in the field.

John Brennan, counter-terrorism chief of the Barack Obama administration, presented the policy that will be followed in remarks on Wednesday.

The official said actions would be particularly targeted to Al Qaeda leaders identified in Pakistan and Yemen.

This strategy, two years in the making, will be used to resist Al Qaeda attempts to drag the United States into more costly wars, like those of Iraq and Afghanistan, Brennan emphasized.

For Washington, Al Qaeda is the main threat to the country, Brennan said.

The United States used a special commando of the Pentagon to execute Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden on May 2 in Pakistan.

Obama ordered the operation without the consent of Islamabad and, despite higher tensions between the two countries, said it would repeat the action if necessary.
