Listening to: Simple Man by Nomi
Anyway. I read in Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet that Washington planned to send US Navy Seals to extract Mulla Krekar from Oslo. Krekar is featured on the latest versions of UN’s list of terrorist. They put the operation on hold in fear of ending up in a shoot out with Norwegian police.
American operations in Oslo isn’t anything new. CIA agents were scouting here in 2003. The thing is, Mulla Krekar lives two blocks down from me. I’ve met and said hello to him several times. Sending Navy Seals to extract him sounds pretty James Bond and out of touch with reality. But I guess that’s a fitting description of the American administation these days. And yes, he’s a nice guy.
