The Yemen raid cost the life of a Navy Seal and 20+ civilians, including children. Yet Trump and his administration called the raid a success. Now the father of the dead soldier is calling for an investigation (see link). Of course no father is going to be happy with a mission that got his son killed, but I think there is good cause for an investigation. I've never been in the military, but my understanding is that special forces are about stealthy approach and surprise. From the reporting on the raid in Yemen, the element of surprise was lost. My question is why was the raid wasn't aborted once it became clear that the terrorists knew they were about to be attacked. Honestly I wish the GOP Congress would pursue this with the same fervour they pursued the Benghazi investigations. If it is turns out just to have been a bad string of luck, then so be it. But if somebody ordered the attack to continue in spite of the fact that the raiding force had been discovered, then there should be hell to pay.
