Military officials revealed earlier today that the recent raid in Yemen was primarily objected to kill noted Al Qaeda recruiter Qassim Al Rimi… but they missed him.
Al Rimi, the terrorist organization’s chief figurehead in the Arabian Peninsula, later bashed Trump in a released audio recording.
According to NBC News, Al Rimi said “The fool of the White House got slapped at the beginning of his road in your lands.” It is still unknown whether or not Al-Rimi was present in Yemen or elsewhere at the time of the raid.
William “Ryan” Owens, a 36 year-old Navy SEAL was the lone American casualty during the Yemen attack, while officials also mentioned that “regrettably that civilian non-combatants were likely killed” as well.
Though the primary purpose of the raid was not achieved, military officials told reporters that the intel gathered from the Yemen site “will likely provide insight into the planning of future terror plots.”
NBC News reported:
A senior U.S. intelligence official has told NBC News that “almost everything went wrong” once the raid got underway. Occupants of the targeted house were alerted by something — possibly a barking dog, a drone crash or walkie-talkie chatter, U.S. officials said.
