Why Is The US Military In Yemen? Why Aren’t Saudi Troops Doing The Dirty Work?

Navy SEALs startled by terrorists’ combat readiness in Yemen mission

The mission, the first of President Trump’s administration, is widely regarded as a failure, and while the White House continues to claim that intelligence was recovered during the raid, Pentagon officials have repeatedly conceded that what was recovered was largely things they already knew, and a collection of telephone numbers containing no specifically actionable intelligence.

Even beyond the AQAP guards and other general fighters the SEALs expected to encounter were female family members, who in previous circumstances the US considered unlikely to become involved, were quick to take up arms against the raiding forces, adding to the complications.

“family members”  That is quite a statement.  We are attacking families?  One of our men died retrieving telephone numbers we already had. Why aren’t 9/11 sponsor Saudi troops doing the dirty work? The whole Yemen operation is wrong.

It makes you wonder what else is going wrong we don’t hear about.

Be seeing you
