Mr. Trump’s First Military Action

Ayesha Rascoe – Reuters:

U.S. military officials told Reuters that Trump approved his first covert counterterrorism operation without sufficient intelligence, ground support or adequate backup preparations.

As a result, three officials said, the attacking SEAL team found itself dropping onto a reinforced al Qaeda base defended by landmines, snipers, and a larger than expected contingent of heavily armed Islamist extremists.

Didn’t Mr. Trump claim to be smarter than all the generals?

Trump criticism, of which I have unlimited volume, aside, shouldn’t “the generals” have ensured all aspects of this raid were planned and green-lighted?
