What happened in Niger.

2/ While everyone is so busy talking about the president's handling of his call to the widow of the

3.you're all missing the important part of that story...the part about what happened that night in

4. The story that is emerging is so much worse than anything that happened in Benghazi

5. but the same GOP Congress that investigated Benghazi with a fury seems to have little or no interest in this story.

6. Here's what we know so far...
.These soldiers went to a meeting in an area near the border with Mali a well known hot spot for ISIS

7 Our soldiers were not backed up by US Military air support- backed up by the French, who were not authorized to intervene or even fire

8 Our soldiers did not have armored vehicles. They traveled in pickup trucks.

9 "it was unlikely that they would meet any hostile forces." Of course, they walked into an ISIS ambush-chaotic and they took three lives

10 It took the French 30 minutes to arrive. When they did they were not authorized to help.

11. So, a dozen of our Green Berets fought a battle with more than 50 Isis fighters, without help, for 30 minutes.

12 Finally, a rescue helicopter arrived, but it was not a US military helicopter.

13 No, we apparently outsourced that job to “private contractors.”

14 So, these contractors landed and loaded the remaining troops, the injured and the dead.
.
Here's where this gets really bad...

15 Because they were not military, they never did a head count. That is how Sgt. La David Johnson

16 That's right...they left him behind.

17According to the Pentagon, his locator beacon was activated on battlefield, which indicates that he was alive when they left him there

18 They recovered his body 48 hours later but are refusing to say where.

19 According to his widow, she could not have an open casket. This means that he was mutilated after being left behind on the battlefield.

20 This is what led to the nonsense we're obsessing over. This is the real story.

21 As usual, you're allowing it to be about Trump's distraction, but this is Benghazi on steroids.

22 The Trump Pentagon gave these men bad intel, no support, outsourced rescue people and
Laura Sessions @laurasessions10

22 tried for more than a week to pretend it never happened. In that time, Trump spoke on many occasions and never mentioned it.

24 He tweeted attacks on many but never mentioned this
Only after pressure from the media did he acknowledge these men and their service..

Seems more like a spec ops mission to me and they wanted to keep a low profile specifically because it was an ISIS hot spot.

This.

Terror flyovers are pointless. Why are we abiding by these stupid rules?
What's Niger gonna do about it? Toss us from the country?
