Trump stages NFL protest while ignoring 4 dead Special Forces

Op-Ed: Trump admin stages NFL protest while ignoring 4 dead Special Forces soldiers in Niger

Derek Gannon | 10.09.2017 39 Comments

It was two days after America was still coming to grips with the carnage that was displayed in Las Vegas after a madman holed himself up in a 32nd floor hotel suite of the Mandalay Bay casino and resort. Where the killer, Stephen Paddock constructed some sort of makeshift machine gun nest overlooking a country music festival then smashed two windows and rained down a hail of gunfire on unsuspecting concert-goers killing 58 and maiming upwards of 540.

A stunned America had no idea that a small group of U.S. Army Special Forces Green Berets along with their Nigerien counterparts were coming back from a mission in the southwestern region of Niger on that Wednesday when they were ambushed by an enemy force of 50 or more from what is a new wing of the Islamic State called The Islamic State in Greater Sahara (ISIS-GS). The joint Green Beret team was met with withering machine gun and small-arms fire and immediately began to take casualties. Nigeriens took what was reported to SOFREP as heavy casualties and in the midst of all the chaos and were reported to have fled from the ambush leaving the Green Berets alone to fight off the attack.

3. To him they're "Losers".

 

I'm sure he prefers to just honor special forces that don't get killed.

2. He doesn't know what to do of how to act.

Pathetic creature. Why hasn't Mattis or someone told him what to do?

4. Makes the whole respect the flag

drama empty and pointless if this tragedy can be ignored. His supporters will twist themselves up in knots defending this travesty

8. I'm guessing the human POS will be saying that it's Hillary's or Pres. Obama's fault ...

That these 4 soldiers are dead. That's IF he says anything about them at all.

They're only HUMANS, no biggie


tRumputin has to work 24/7 to protect the flag ya know
