Yes, we have done this a lot. You can bet that the after-action will be very rigorous.

Once again you are on point, going where hopefully most all of us will follow.

God Bless You.

We are so fortunate to have men like this willing to go into a shithole like Yemen and eliminate a bunch of very bad dudes

Yeah, I have always looked to the non-serving CJS educated press to give me analysis of military operations as if they think they are all the same as some asinine video game. I have no idea why TM thinks their opinions are even worth posting.

So after a mysterious eight year gap, are we back to the grim milestones?

Beasts of England

The Sessions vote was only a first or preliminary vote, with the final scheduled for next week. Ignoring that more than forty Dems would vote against someone with whom they've served with for years, the degree of delay is reprehensible.

Even the radical racist Holder was confirmed 75-21.

Frau  Mit Schatten

I am grateful that such fine men live in our country.

"Totally approved by a Amy" brought back memories of Jimmuh, when he consulted Amy (who was, what, about 10?) on nukular weapons.

News flash -a Bodega strike in N.Y. (I had to google to find out what this was) So, up to 1,000 Yemeni small grocery stores are closing to protest the President's temporary halt on importing some Muslims.

I thought everyone should know so you can stock up on all the things you would normally buy at these places.

Carry on...

maryrose

I cannot believe Dems voting in lockstep against Sessions.
Disgraceful behavior.
I can't believe Holder got that many votes.After his hand in the pardon of one of Clinton's backers Mark Rich this thug was held in contempt by Congress for lying about Fast and Furious.
Republicans must have been drunk at the time of the vote.

Please call him *odious* radical racist Holder, Beasts.

The "American" girl was as American as I am a 6'2" blond Finnish model. Islamic terrorists should *not* take their children to work.

Funny, the press did not cover that large Ranger raid in Afghanistan several years ago when they knew the group was coming and the female cultural officer with them was blown up first because the women were wearing suicide belts. I just remember the wounded ranger trying to salute with multiple lost limbs when he was thought to be unconscious.

I find that picture above hard to look at as my son and husband knew him from his visits with friends here in ATL.

Vote to advance Mnuchin going on now.
Dems keep voting not to carry on legislative business.
If they don't want to work why are we paying them?

maryrose, white guilt applied liberally (!) kept the Republicans from bringing up Holder's corrupt past. He was hidden in plain sight: "In late 2007, Holder joined then-Senator Barack Obama's presidential campaign as a senior legal advisor. " From there he was put in the administration. The young Lightbringer had to have his adviser.

I have no idea why TM thinks their opinions are even worth posting.

I don't, either. CNN has shown itself to be a merchant of lies, distortions and slander rather than news, and the other outlets TM links to are no better.

Captain Hate

From lurkersusie's link:

a one-paragraph order on Thursday, a three-judge panel of the US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit denied intervention requests filed by a group of state attorneys general, Sen. Sherrod Brown and Rep. Maxine Waters, and a coalition of civil rights and consumer protection groups. The judges did not give a reason for their decision.

Another setback for the Restraining Order and Kerosene Maxine. Maybe if that hoarse voiced goof hadn't made such an ass out of himself with his dimwitted "protest" at Cowlumbus's tinker toy airport, his staff might have overruled his idiot fatassed second wife and talked some sense into him. But I'm sure the brilliant legal mind of Cordray will find a way out of this. MOAR popcorn.

The Gipper Lives

Congrats to NBC, The Enemy Propaganda Network, for using fuzzy soft-focus photos of Anwar al-Awlaki staring thoughtfully into mid-distance and for handing their NBC megaphone over to terrorists, regurgitating paragraph after paragraph of al Queda claims uncritically.

The AINO (American In Name Only) terrorist al-Awlaki was indeed a thoughtful guy--when he wasn't, say, killing soldiers at Fort Hood.

NOTE TO NBC: al-Awlaki's daughter Nora was a Human Shield, killed by terrorists, not by SEALS.

She was American Family, too, NBC. Not just another disposable prop for your Trump-bashing.

The SEALS were attacked trying to protect and free her--and all of us--from the enemies of civilization, the ones NBC seems so eager to assist.

But now that you mention it, it's almost as if the terrorists were waiting for the SEALS.

Did an Obama Mole in the bureaucracy warn them we were coming, just to "Get Trump"?

Is that why Democrats are stalling all levels of confirmations, to keep all their moles in place in a kind of slow-rolling coup?

Sadly, you can't put it past these gutter-dwelling political gangsters.

Investigate that, NBC.

In all honesty, it was economid. I can't afford to be buying books on impulse.

What I discovered was that I can go to the library or the used book store and get what I want. It may take me a bit longer, but patience is a skill I need to learn, anyway.

Plus it makes me happy I am denying Bezos of income.

JiB, I assume that's a child from his second marriage since his two older sons are already retired from basketball (I don't remember them shooting free throws underhanded). I get the argument that Rick used to preach endlessly and irritatingly about the efficacy of the mechanics but most people just find it too unnatural.

At least nobody shoots free throws as jump shots since Hal Greer.

Jane,

There is no doubt he is smart and conceived a supremely successful business. I am in admiration of that.

However, he chose to enter the political arena. Once he did that, I am forced to either approve or disapprove.

I disapprove.

You are free to support his business. My decision is only for myself. It's been my long-standing policy to not support people who wage war against me, whether it is Julia Roberts, George Will, Comcast Cable, or CNN.

This is my personal decision. I haven't money to donate to causes, so it is the only way I can express my disapproval.

I realize not everyone follows this type of thinking, and that's ok with me. It's a personal decision.

Richard Aubrey

The Geneva Convention says that setting up to fight from among civilians is a war crime. However, it does provide dead civilians with which to reproach US policy, providing the president is a republican. If the president is a democrat, libs couldn't care less about collateral damage.
Be interesting to find out if this thing was burned.
Checking out Operation Red Wings, for which Obama was not blamed. Among other things it should have been a Nightstalker bird doing the insertion with its protections. Instead, say some reports, it was a Guard bird without the tactical gimcrackery the 160th has. Some reports show a MH47, the tactical model, but with five Guardsmen killed. So that might mean a CH47 instead.
Might have been burned, too.
Still, it was not another grim milestone. When Bush was president, whenever the accumulated casualties reached a number ending with zero, it was another grim milestone. When Obama was president, nobody got killed.
Now, with Trump, the grim milestone is any number divisible by 1.
