Why are we giving Kenya Free Navy Seal Boats?


The government of Kenya is about to receive a gift from the Obama Administration - five top-of-the-line Navy Seal boats. Why? These are boats are turbocharged , 36 feet long, capable of carrying 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. Why does Kenya need these boats? Who is the target? And why should we pay for them? What is the cost and why is the contract being awarded as non-competitive (not open for bids)? We are running 1.3 trillion deficit…is this something we really should be doing?

    Thanks Junkseller for such a thoughtful response. I agree with you that it will be used in some capacity to terrorist, but who do they consider terrorist? Our friends or our enemies?
