Barack Hussein is being potentially implicated in the death of a US special operator in Yemen during an attack on an al-Qaeda compound on Sunday.
Navy SEAL William ‘Ryan’ Owens was killed in the attack, and three others injured during a firefight with al-Qaeda militants, reported Government Slaves.
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.”
However, a source later told ABC News that “Al-Qaeda fighters seemed ready for Sunday’s deadly Navy SEAL raid in Yemen.”
The source also claimed, “it was clear that the AQAP fighters in the compound knew the Americans were coming and engaged them with heavy weapons.”
Given the Obama administration’s extensive knowledge of the operation and the source’s claim, could they be responsible for tipping off the militants in order to botch Trump’s first military raid?
The Obama administration has been involved in similar controversies in the past, such as one incident in Kabul, Afghanistan in 2006 when a Chinook helicopter was shot down.
