Kenya Gets Free Navy Seal Boats . . . Why?
The government of Kenya is going to receive a gift from the Obama Administration: five top-of-the-line Navy Seal boats.
Why? Nobody seems to know.
The winner is the contractor: United States Marine Incorporated (USMI) of Gulfport,
What does Kenya plan to do with these boats? And why should American taxpayers pay for them?
These are turbocharged boats. They are 36 feet long. They carry a crew of three, plus one SEAL squad. Each one carries an M60 7.62mm machine gun, a MK19 40mm, and a M2 .50 cal. machine gun.
Who will be the targets of such firepower? in Kenya? Nobody seems to know.
How much will all this cost? No one is saying.
The contract is being awarded on a non-competitive basis. No other bids, in other words.
