Oh, and another thought about Niger, and our operation. In my 20 years in the USAF I worked closely with all sorts of countries/forces/agencies, etc. In all, I operated in 69 countries. I don’t recall any congressmen or Senators like McCain or Graham ever protesting that they hadn’t “approved” of our operations. In fact, as far as I know, they weren’t entitled to know. Reagan didn’t tell them, Bush, Sr didn’t tell them, and neither did Clinton.

Today’s outrage at Trump is just more noise. Young men died. That’s tragic. Pushing to make it more is insulting to us all. Let’s keep some things sacred..
