REPORT: AL-QAEDA MILITANTS TIPPED OFF AHEAD OF TRUMP’S FIRST SEAL RAID

On Sunday a Navy SEAL raid in Yemen resulted in the death of  U.S. commando William “Ryan” Owens, as well as the injury of three others during a firefight with al-Qaeda militants.

The raid was Trump’s first authorized counterterrorism operation, but was planned for months by the Obama administration.

The New York Times reported, “Obama administration aides had deliberated extensively over the proposed operation, weighing the value of any information that might be recovered against the risk to the Special Operations forces plunging into hostile territory.”
