OFFICIALS: Trump Authorized Raid That Killed Civilians Without Proper Intelligence, Backup For SEALs

Military officials say Donald Trump authorized a raid that killed civilians in Yemen without proper intelligence or backup for the operation and put Navy SEALs in danger.

“U.S. military officials told Reuters that Trump approved his first covert counterterrorism operation without sufficient intelligence, ground support or adequate backup preparations.

As a result, three officials said, the attacking SEAL team found itself dropping onto a reinforced al Qaeda base defended by landmines, snipers, and a larger than expected contingent of heavily armed Islamist extremists.

The Pentagon directed queries about the officials’ characterization of the raid to U.S. Central Command. The latter pointed only to its statement on Wednesday.” [READ MORE]

    Not the least surprised. When has Trump ever concerned himself with details.

    Perhaps the coffin at Dover AFB will have an impact.

      You might want to get your facts straight before commenting on something you clear do not know anyhony about. President Obamas DOD and his administration was the ones that came up with the plan. Back in nov 7 it was brought to DOD and by December they had this plan.

      So you are blaming Trump for the inmates taking over the prison at Smyrna? Best part of that story is that inmates have NO rights and they think they do. They are in jail, scum bags, dead beats, etc… Kind of like liberals.

    What happens when you combine Carters Iranian Hostage mess with the same claims of Clinton in Benghazi? Trumpghazi!

  • The raid was greenlighted by Obama but held off for “moonless night” so became Trumps.

    But feel free to continue being stupid.

      Not true. This prez and his incompetent staff preface their dangerous actions with, “Obama did it first; it’s Obama’s list of dangerous countries; Obama ok’d the Yemen raid….” In short, you have some nerve calling anyone stupid (ahem)! Like it’s not bad enough Kushner and Bannon ‘greenlighted’ this tragedy over dinner. Mattis came for dessert?! smh, fools!
