Why Did Trump Approve the Failed Mission in Yemen?

As usual, the television media is giving Trump a free pass; they are ignoring the failed mission into Yemen on January 28th, which cost the lives of at least 28 civilians, and one Navy Seal; three others were wounded. They refuse to ask the tough questions. Why did Trump approve the raid without having military experts present. Why wasn’t he in the White House situation room instead of eating dinner at Mar-a-Lago? His only advisers present were his son-in-law, and Steve Bannon; certainly no military expertise there.

William “Ryan” Owens was killed in a firefight. His father, Bill, was invited to speak with your illegitimate president when his son’s casket arrived aboard a military aircraft, but refused. He has some valid questions; questions which the media should be asking.

Why at this time did there have to be this stupid mission when it wasn’t even barely a week into his administration? Why? For two years prior, there were no boots on the ground in Yemen — everything was missiles and drones — because there was not a target worth one American life. Now, all of a sudden we had to make this grand display?’’

Members of Trump’s circle of sinners claim that the raid was a success, and that “Ryan” was a hero. Military experts have denounced the mission as a complete failure.

Don’t hide behind my son’s death to prevent an investigation,” said the elder Owens, pointing to Trump’s sharp words directed at the mission’s critics, including Sen. John McCain.

I want an investigation. … The government owes my son an investigation,” he said.

Mr. Owens should get his investigation. The operation had been planned for more than two months. There was a stipulation that it take place on a “moonless night,” and that did not occur until after Trump’s inauguration, “a day which will live in infamy.”

Trump is unable to make ‘good’ decisions. His lack of experience in government or in the military make him unfit to make decisions related to domestic or military matters.

America misses President Obama; congress does not have term limits, why should a president be thrown away after eight years, and be replaced with a buffoon?
