Well, well, well… what do we have here? CNN is reporting that the controversial raid in Yemen last month did infact yield leads on Al Qaeda operatives. The raid which has received significant media attention as Donald Trump’s detractors have questioned the operation, which resulted in the death of Ryan Owens, a Navy SEAL.
The US is working to locate and monitor hundreds of people, or “contacts,” found as part of the intelligence retrieved during the raid last month in Yemen targeting an al Qaeda affiliate, several US officials told CNN.
The sources said some of these people are believed to be in the West but not in the United States.
This raid on al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula site has become controversial following the death of Navy SEAL William “Ryan” Owens, whose father has demanded an investigation into the approval and execution of the January operation.
It’s been reported that laptops, hard drives and other materials were seized during the operation. However Democrats and their allies in the Media have called into question the necessity and success of the raid. President Trump honored Ryan Owens’ widow during the joint sessions address to Congress on Tuesday.
If this information is correct, there should be a great deal of crow to be eaten in and around Washington, DC.
