Secretary of Defense Gen. James “Mad Dog” Matthis is a true American hero. He’s one of the few people in government that can be trusted. What makes him a great leader is this. He doesn’t let political correctness affect his fight against America’s terrorist enemies.
Gen. Matthis has just delivered a stunning victory for America. In a recent airstrike, US forces killed Abu Khattab al Awlaqi, a senior Al Qaeda boss in the Arabian Peninsula (via FOX News). Terrorists better watch out. Matthis has come to town!
Al Qaeda, the terror network behind the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center, is one of our nation’s greatest enemies. Although post-9/11 operations weakened Al Qaeda, the organization is far from dead.
In fact, Al Qaeda has been growing in several Middle Eastern countries. This is due in large part to the policies of the Obama Administration, which held a very weak counter-terrorism position.
Obama’s handling of Middle Eastern affairs is also what gave rise to ISIS. By mishandling the withdrawal from Iraq and telegraphing a clear timeline, Obama made it all-to-easy for an entity like ISIS to fill the vacuum we left.
Thankfully, we now have President Trump in the oval office. And he’s chosen the perfect person to head our defense–James Matthis. The famed Marine Corps. General is widely respected by Americans–and feared by our enemies, and with good reason.
Abu Khattab al Awlaqi and two of his associates were wiped off the face of the earth in a merciless airstrike in Yemen. Al Awlaqi was a major al Qaeda leader, existing as the head of a large militant stronghold in Shabwah Governorate.
This move is the latest in a massive assault against Al Qaeda that began when President Trump entered office. Our new President has been hard at work eliminating the terror threats that were allowed to spring up under Obama.
In total, there have been 80 strikes against Al Qaeda in Yemen under Trump. Compare that to Obama’s record. Under him, there were only 38 strikes last year. In 2015, there were just 22 airstrikes launched against Al Qaeda in Yemen. It shows how big of a priority combating terrorism was for the Obama Administration.
Yemen is a critical battleground in the fight against Islamic terror. It was the home of Anwar al-Awlaki, who organized a number of attacks targeting America. He trained the Christmas Day bBomber, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, who tried to blow up an airliner in 2009. That was the same year of the infamous Fort Hood shooting, which claimed 13 lives. The perpetrator of that attack was also from Yemen.
President Trump isn’t afraid to attack the enemy and hard. Unlike Obama, he understands the enemy: Radical Islam. Barack Obama wouldn’t even utter the phrase. He was a Muslim apologist through-and-through!
Gen. Matthis is brilliantly executing the Trump agenda to bring forth a safer America. We can’t go easy on these terrorist animals. They can’t be reasoned with. The only way to deal with terrorists is with a good healthy airstrike. Great job, Gen. Matthis!
