Remember that “worthless” Yemen raid that produced “no actionable intelligence” and was a complete “failure”. Aside from yielding the numbers of hundreds of Al Qaeda terrorists. Including some in the West.
Several US officials told CNN Thursday that the US is now taking action to locate and monitor hundreds of people or “contacts” found as part the intelligence retrieved during the deadly raid last month in Yemen targeting al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.
Some of these people are believed to be in the West, but not in the United States.
The government is taking action to find and monitor these AQAP-linked individuals because of the threat they may pose to Europe, the officials added.The fact that officials said they are actively pursuing leads uncovered from the raid indicates that the intelligence was indeed actionable despite some media reports to the contrary.
In short the media lied. It spent a week churning out fake news from anonymous sources. Most of which probably lead on a string back to Obama’s Goebbels, Ben Rhodes.
No actionable intelligence whatsoever. But you can trust the media.
