‘Massive Intelligence Failure’ In Niger Led To Soldiers’ Deaths, Report Says — ‘Trump’s Benghazi’ Critics Say
The four United States soldiers killed in an ISIS ambush in the West African country of Niger died due in part to a “massive intelligence failure,” according to a new report by NBC News on Friday afternoon. The intelligence failure placed the troops in the heart of what appears to be a sophisticated and well-planned attack by the militants who may have intentionally delayed the troops who were on what they thought was a routine mission, then lured them into the ambush by using men on motorcycles to somehow provoke them   Read More ...

Trump Is Feuding With a Congresswoman Over a Soldier Killed in Niger. Why Was He Deployed There?

The rubble in Raqqa reminds us of our military might. But what’s next?
Looking at photographs of the ruined, desolate streets of what was once the Islamic State’s capital of Raqqa is a reminder of the overwhelming, pitilessly effective military power of the United States. Perhaps it’s a tribute to the inevitable nature of American force, once it’s engaged, that the fall of Raqqa in Syria this week provoked so little public discussion. Commentators focused on whether President Trump had dissed the parents of America’s fallen warriors, but they barely seemed to notice that our military has achieved a goal that three years ago seemed distant and uncertain   Read More ...
