US air raid kills ‘wrong troops’ in Somalia


The Somali military has confirmed that its soldiers were killed in the attack and al-Shabaab told reporters that its fighters were not in the region at the time.

    Luckily a Democrat is president, so none of this will matter to the mainstream media.

    It would have been better if they’d bagged some al-Shabaab, but fewer Somalis in the world is still a good thing as far as I’m concerned.

    Has the US military has been infiltrated by ClA think?
    ClA has been in countries stirring up trouble with regime change antics since their founding.
    It does not take much to influence thinking (troops on both sides) or strategic balance of a battlefield. The ‘odd unintentional’ friendly fire incident can have just this effect.
    The Syria troop bombing this month reduced the size a large question mark in my mind as to the possibility this is the case.
    With todays technology either the military is getting feed false info by their forward targeting, their technology using GPS coordinates is not very good, or its out and out intentional.

    Gee never would have guessed there were right or good troops in Somalia.
