Donald Trump does not think that the voters are onto his tricks. He thinks that telling people that the military killed an al Qaeda leader will make them completely forget that he shut down the government, because he wanted his memorial wall. He will not forget his wall, though. Other presidents have libraries, but Trump does not read — ergo his wall. Do people even believe his last tweet?
POTUS referred to “Our GREAT MILITARY,” and that is true. The U.S. has a great military whose members have sacrificed much for our nation, but could someone tell the tweeter-in-chief that he has not been emphasizing our great military? In Twitter world, he was yelling:
‘Our GREAT MILITARY has delivered justice for the heroes lost and wounded in the cowardly attack on the USS Cole. We have just killed the leader of that attack, Jamal al-Badawi. Our work against al Qaeda continues. We will never stop in our fight against Radical Islamic Terrorism!’
The U.S. Central Command confirmed Trump’s claim that one of the militants who masterminded the deadly strike on the USS Cole in 2000 died during a U.S. airstrike in Yemen. The president may have brought attention to this, because Americans do not want any part in starving three million children to death in Yemen. The Saudi Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman, a friend of the Trumps, is full in this war.
An al-Qaida commander Jamal al-Badawi has been on FBI’s most wanted list for his involvement in bombing the USS Cole, according to NPR. Two suicide bombers set off explosives. Seventeen sailors died, and another 40 were injured in the attack.
The question arrises, though, how deeply involved in Yemen warfare has the U.S. been? The Senate voted to allow the U.S. the ability to end military support in the country. It was mean as a rebuke for the prince ordering the gruesome death of a Washington Post reporter living in the U.S. He was lured to the Saudi embassy in Turkey, tortured, assassinated, and dismembers before being planted in a nearby garden.
