So even as Obama has touted 32 times since
Benghazi how al-Qaeda is defeated,
he now has deployed over 100 troops and is setting up a drone base in Niger?
And U.S. officials have said for months that they would not put U.S. military “boots on the ground”
in Mali! Granted, Obama did not reveal the drone base or use of Predator drones in his letter
Another "stabilizing" destabilization!
And another drone base with Predators to hunt al-Qaeda?
Snippets with the facts :
Obama did not explicitly reveal the drone base in his letter to Congress, but he said the U.S. troops in Niger would “provide support for
intelligence collection” and share intelligence with French forces in Mali.
A U.S. defense official, speaking on condition of anonymity to provide further details about military operations, said the 40 troops who arrived in
Niger Wednesday were almost all Air Force personnel and that their mission is to support drone flights.
The official said drone operations were “imminent,” but declined to say whether unmanned
Predator aircraft had already arrived in Niger...
