Trump Sends Seal Team 6 to Rescue American Hostage

Seal Team 6 has rescued an American hostage in Nigeria. The hostage was taken captive earlier this week in Niger and moved to the neighboring country of Nigeria.

According to Fox News:

The elite SEAL Team 6 staged a daring raid in the West African country of Nigeria, rescuing Philip Walton, 27, who had been taken hostage, officials told Fox News.

“We had to get him before any potential trade or sale,” one U.S. official said.

“U.S. forces conducted a hostage rescue operation during the early hours of 31 October in Northern Nigeria to recover an American citizen held hostage by a group of armed men,” Jonathan Hoffman, chief Pentagon spokesman, said in a statement.

“We appreciate the support of our international partners in conducting this operation,” Hoffman added. “The United States will continue to protect our people and our interests anywhere in the world.”

Seal Team 6 killed a number of his captors during the raid. None of the Seals were injured and the hostage is now in the care of the U.S. Department of State.

Use of our military (excepting the National Guard) have directives in place that allow the top military brass to refuse orders of using them inside the US. Now if a foreign government tries to use any force then the US military can and would be deployed. The NG for the most part are controlled by the individual state. A national emergency could activate the NG done by the President. Our biggest problem in that area is DSHS. The head if that group can take control of all resources within the US Military, Banks, medical, power grids, oil products including gas, and the list is quite long. Do some research and then cringe because the order to activate is from the President but controlled by others and there are no automatic stops in place.

52% of Veterans support Trump.
Among veterans who first enlisted or entered the officer corps after 2001, about 60 percent said they have a negative view of Trump’s presidency.

The latest Military Times poll shows a continued decline in active-duty service members’ views of President Donald Trump and a slight but significant preference for former Vice President Joe Biden in the upcoming November election among troops surveyed.

What a major difference we have in trump versus Obama. I read of a similar situation that happened in Afghanistan when Obama was president and the SEALS were sent in. They had located the hostage and were locked and loaded. All they needed was the greenlight from Obama. What did 44 do? He had the soldiers delay the raid for 24 hours to hear back from him (Obama was on vacation of course). When Obama finally gave the green light, the soldiers returned but the terrorists and hostage moved to another location, haven’t been seen since. Trump moves quick and gets fast results. First time I’ve ever seen a true return on my voting investment with Trump. Trump 2020 all the way!!!

You seem to forget a very important thing the international laws governing any actions any military does, is the USA to become like some rouge nation who does not in any way follow the laws of  Humanitarianism and not care about innocent persons being killed or injured. Even in actual conflict in any war there are rules to follow called ROE and one of those rules is you are not allowed to shoot a person who is running away even if carrying a weapon in the back, they must pose an imminent threat to you in order to shoot them.

Now to raise the things our secretive forces do is not good for them in any way, just like any other secretive things in this Government they have over sight in those groups and they should not be exposed as to what they do. Now when some want to make it a big thing to make someone else look good, the fact is it is not good for the secrecy of the operations in any way, actually giving our enemies insight into how our secretive operations are carried out so they know how to avoid or disrupt those actions in the future, secret is just that secret.

The best that we can pray for is that President Trump will again send Seal Team Six to Capture Nancy Ugly Pelosi, with all those Dummuercrat Congressmen, and Slick Dishonest Bill and Crooked Hillary, and all BLM Members, then load them all in C-5’s and dump them in Somolia. Sleepy Joe doesn’t matter because he doesn’t even know where he is.
