To remind the world just how dangerous ISIS and its compatriots are, the Trump administration released a list of 78 terror attacks that the media is trying desperately to ignore in the hopes you, the American people, will never learn of them.
Last weekend a raid in Yemen ended up in a failed effort to take out al Qaeda leader Qassim al-Rimi. Unfortunately the raid not only failed to take out al-Rimi, it also ended up in the loss of a $75 million aircraft and, even worse, the loss of one of our own men, Navy SEAL William “Ryan” Owens.
Many in the media are calling it Donald Trump’s “botched raid.” This characterization is mostly a false portrayal of the action because it was planned and initially approved during the last months of the Obama era.
Contrary to what some have reported, Obama did not reject the operation as planned during his waning days in office. In truth, the military commanders in charge of the raid were the ones responsible for delaying the attack until Trump took office (they didn’t delay it because they were waiting for Trump to take office).
