See who finds the 'D' boys


We have find this story about one of the latest (and most important) hostage rescue operations we have experienced lately:

Operators of the French Special Forces and members of the US intelligence during the hostage release operation to the Hotel Splendid which was attacked by four terrorists of Al-Qaeda on 16 January in Ouagadougou, capital of Burkina Faso.

During the attack the terrorists; two men and two women, belonging to 'Al Murabitun' branch of al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb killed 27 people on site. The hotel, run by Western staff very much of this belonging to the United Nations, NGOs and French soldiers.

During the rescue operation conducted by Burkinabe troops, French Special Forces and American personnel, were shot dead four hostile and releasing a total of 150 persons held by the four terrorists.

And in the photos that accompany the news we see operators involved. Among them we think we might guess any venture is Delta Force operators outside Fort Bragg. But of course this is impossible to say with certainty. Yet we like the exercise of trying to tell them apart, do you dare? See who finds the 'D' boys.
