More News From Niger

There have been many questions about he death a US Special Ops trooper in Niger that was not with the bodies of the others killed and now…… the rest of the story……(sort of)

Speaking to ABC News, the unnamed official added their belief that the men’s ‘light convoy’ had been being surveilled by their killers for at least a day before they were hit.

Questions remain over why top command sent the unit – which consisted of just six to eight vehicles and only 42 troops – into the dangerous area to gather intelligence on a target.

The official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said had the men been called back after the original reconnaissance mission then they would still all be alive.

‘ They should have been up and back in a day. They were hit because they were up there so f****** long on a mission that morphed, they were spotted, surveilled and ultimately hit.’

He the story is accurate then this Trooper died a hero….thinking of nothing but his comrades and their need.
IST salutes an American hero!

  1. The more I read about this event. the more it seems that intelligence was non-existent, back-up not arranged, and the troops just left to react to whatever they found. The officer responsible for sending them should be called to answer for his actions.
    Best wishes, Pete.
