In deadly Yemen raid, a lesson for Trump’s national security team – The Washington Post


The raid involved Navy SEAL Team 6, Marine gunships and Harrier jets.

The mission:  detain Yemeni tribal leaders collaborating with al-Qaeda and gather intelligence that could plug a critical gap in U.S. understanding of one of the world’s most dangerous militant groups.

A massive firefight ensued, claiming the life of an American sailor and at least one Yemeni child, and serving as an early lesson for President Trump’s national security team about the perils of overseas ground operations.
