Compare this to the sorry record of President Jihad Obama.
Not only that. Obama also released Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, the mastermind of the USS Cole bombing: Al-Nashiri has been identified as the former Persian Gulf Operations Chief for al Qaeda and the mastermind of the attack on the U.S.S. Cole
But now, by contrast, we have a real President. And the Democrats are working furiously to destroy him, throwing everything against him that they can think of, hoping that something will stick.
“US official: Airstrike kills terrorist behind USS Cole bombing,” by Ryan Browne and Barbara Starr, CNN, January 4, 2019:
Washington (CNN)The terrorist behind the 2000 attack on the USS Cole is believed to have been killed in a US airstrike in Yemen on Tuesday, according to a US administration official.
Jamel Ahmed Mohammed Ali Al-Badawi was an al Qaeda operative who the US believes helped orchestrate the October 12, 2000, attack on the USS Cole that killed 17 American sailors.
The official said all intelligence indicators show al-Badawi was killed in a strike in Yemen as a result of a joint US military and intelligence operation.
US officials told CNN that the strike took place in Yemen’s Ma’rib Governorate.
While US Central Command, which oversees military operations in the region, later confirmed that al-Badawi was targeted in a strike, a spokesman said the US was still assessing the results.
“US forces conducted a precision strike Jan. 1st in the Marib governate, Yemen, targeting Jamal al-Badawi, a legacy al Qaeda operative in Yemen involved in the USS Cole bombing,” US Navy Capt. Bill Urban, a spokesman for Central Command, told CNN in a statement.
“US forces are still assessing the results of the strike following a deliberate process to confirm his death,” he added.
The administration official said that al-Badawi was struck while driving alone in a vehicle and that the US assessed there was not any collateral damage.
The Cole was attacked by suicide bombers in a small boat laden with explosives while in port in Aden, Yemen, for refueling. The attack also wounded 39 sailors.
The bombing was attributed to al Qaeda and foreshadowed the attack on the US less than one year later on September 11, 2001….
