President Obama informed Congress Sunday evening that U.S. forces were present in Somalia on Friday for a French raid to rescue a hostage from al-Shabaab.
The attempt to rescue the intelligence officer who had been held by the terrorist group for three years went very wrong, though.

And French army consultant Denis Allex, the pseudonym for the intelligence officer, is presumed dead.

And no, I don't trust Obama's words in his letter either.
Yeah, Obama’s Greek chorus didn’t bother to ask him about it today during their adoration session, but as best as I can determine, the U.S. support amounted to only a couple of Navy Super Hornet’s flying high air cover for the French commandos.
That was not what I questioned.
A French Intelligence Officer hostage, and raised alertness .... and “in furtherance of U.S. national security interests.”
There is more that meets the eyes that’s been currently leaked.
Did Zero blame Bush for this too?
I TRUST absolutely NOTHING that comes from Obama and his corrupt and treasonist democrats.
**WHO in the hell gave the damn order to NOT rescue our men in Benghazi..... and why did those witnesses have to die???**
If you’re a black prez you can...
1. Smuggle weapons
2. Partner with drug cartels
3. Refuse to stop an Embassy take-over
4. Botch rescues
5. Initiate gun-control via E.O.
What did I miss...? Submit your suggestion...
Barry has Al Qaeda “on the run” alright.
They’re supposed to put out a video from what I’ve heard.
Skinnies win again.
And why in TF are we helping the Frogs again?
They are world class FU’s and not much good at anything than holding noses in the air, synthetic snobs they are.
6. Spend the country into oblivion, piss off our allies, embolden Muslim extremists, and still get re-elected.
