I'm just watching the briefing and finally a reporter asks about Yemen. Spicer's answer is to the effect of... the raid was a success and to say otherwise is a disservice to chief petty officer William Owens whom was killed along with 14 militants as well as 30 civilians including women and children (yes I know Obama killed civilians, including, intentionally an American citizen without due process... bad, very bad and was protested by the Left see Code Pink).

In other words (translated from Patriotic Correctness) is that if you question the raid or call it botched or failed you are un-American. He failed to mention how our joint efforts with Saudi Arabia in Yemen are going to go forward.

Another day of 'don't question us'.

What media attention did it garner? Where was the outrage? You guys make these claims, but you well know there was no national outcry from the people pretending to care now.

We just got through 8 years of, " If you disagree with Obama you're a racist". What do you expect? Why do you guys never think your standards will ever apply to you?


Another day of 'don't question us'.


The last 8 years................

Wasn't one of Obama's main platforms all about closing Gitmo? How did that go? Again, I dont recall protests or even the slightest yawn. I wonder how long till you all start protesting Trump over Gitmo?

And as soon as time travel is possible, we'll get right on that and go and fix the past; but how about for now we settle on fixing the present and the future; rather than constantly, as we continue to do, justify the bull# of the now, with the bull# of yesterday?

I don't think that Yemen agrees with that analysis.

In January 2009, Obama issued an executive order to shutter the prison within a year. He also signed a memo later that year calling for a prison in Illinois to take in detainees. The administration appeared confident in its efforts. But it soon faced opposition from Congress, which passed legislation banning the transfer of detainees to the United States. The restriction required the administration to look abroad.

Find another country to pay to operate a prison.

I can hear the outcry if these people are just released.

How much money Yemen gets in foreign aid?

Billions, I am sure they will be hurting if the US just decided they are not sending any tax dollars to them.

pity.

The Left is pretty well ignored in the media unless a small group smashes or burns things.

because the people making the accusations and expressing their outrage have serious credibility issues.

This post is about as far from reality as the Statue of Liberty endorsing the oppression of women.

Have you ever noticed that all of your excuses amount to just blaming Republicans? He could have signed an executive order.

Hm, maybe they'll realize now that actions have consequences, but probably not. This is where some diplomacy would help, if we had an administration that believed in diplomacy.

So does everyone; this is the same # every year.

Both sides have convenient memories, both sides feed this cycle. Stop it.

And yet when Trump is diplomatic with Russia, something Obama and Hillary both tried and were applauded for, he's literally Hitler and going to end the country.

This mission had its origin in the Obama administration.

Didn't Spicer say that it was an intelligence-gathering mission, and in that respect it was a success.

I believe it has been reported that computers were seized and other helpful intelligence retrieved.

There is much we can't possibly know, but it makes me wonder if something was learned in that intelligence that gave the administration impetus to propose a temporary travel ban from that country and the other six.
