www.drudgereport.com US special forces 'land in Pakistan' (09/16/2001) (Agencies) Newspapers in Pakistan say foreign troops have already arrived in the country. The Nation reports a special plane carrying over two dozen foreigners landed at the Chakala airbase. The News quotes an eyewitness as saying he saw a small contingent of US troops landing in Islamabad. There is no official confirmation of the reports. The paper says, according to unofficial reports, over 50 personnel from the Special Services Group of the US Marines' Green Seals have landed. It adds they plan to conduct 'target-oriented' operations against Osama bin Laden, prime suspect behind the terrorist strikes in the US. Diplomatic sources have confirmed the arrival of two American aircraft but refused to give further details, the Press Trust Of India reports. The Pakistani Army has taken over Karachi airport and has increased its presence at other airports in the area, according to media reports. It's unclear whether the army takeover is in preparation for a strike against neighbouring Afghanistan. Pakistan is under intense pressure from both the US and Afghanistan's Taliban regime following Tuesday's terrorist attack.

if true it is just public style pathfinders or some other basic recon contngent If they were SEALS or any SpecOP no one would see them land. Period. Zaz

I have as much respect for the SEALS as anyone else but in the Gulf War there was a camera crew waiting for them as they came ashore in one area. Hopefully the media won't have as much advance information this time around.

Not Gulf War, but the original landing in Somalia, 1992. Old Man Bush's last act in government.

Actually its more likely to be a plot by radical Islamic papers to make the Pakistani government to appear to have lied to the people. According to the BBC, Pakistan is telling its domestic media that they arent going to allow US troops into Pakistan, only let the US fly over.
