President Trump Released a List of 78 Terror Attacks The Media Hopes You Ignore

As the media tries to blame President Donald J. Trump for a failed raid on a Yemen terror compound by the U.S. military coupled with his recent temporary moratorium on travel from a list of seven terror-exporting countries, the media is in a full blown effort to undermine the president’s efforts to fight terror. To remind the world just how dangerous ISIS and its compatriots are, the Trump administration released a list of 78 terror attacks that the media is trying desperately to ignore in the hopes you, the American people, will never learn of them.

Last weekend a raid in Yemen ended up in a failed effort to take out al Qaeda leader Qassim al-Rimi. Unfortunately the raid not only failed to take out al-Rimi, it also ended up in the loss of a $75 million aircraft and, even worse, the loss of one of our own men, Navy SEAL William “Ryan” Owens.

Many in the media are calling it Donald Trump’s “botched raid.” This characterization is mostly a false portrayal of the action because it was planned and initially approved during the last months of the Obama era.

Contrary to what some have reported, Obama did not reject the operation as planned during his waning days in office. In truth, the military commanders in charge of the raid were the ones responsible for delaying the attack until Trump took office (they didn’t delay it because they were waiting for Trump to take office). Trump was presented the same information Obama was and both presidents signed off on the raid. The only difference is that it was delayed by the Pentagon and carried out this month, instead of during Obama’s last months in office.

So, calling it “Trump’s failed raid” as if it was planned and executed by his own operatives is a misleading and essentially false assessment.

Sadly, just about everything went wrong with this raid. But worse is the fact that some feel that the al Qaeda operatives knew the attack was coming and had stocked their compound with armed women and children all of whom were firing at our troops.

“Several women in the compound immediately, ran to pre-established positions — as though they had trained to be ready, and trained to be combatants — and engaged with us,” Pentagon Spokesman Capt. Jeff Davis said of the operation.

Even as a number of al Qaeda operatives were killed in the raid, some reports said an 8-year-old girl also lost her life.

It seems highly likely that al Qaeda was tipped off to this raid. After all, there are still a lot of Obama operatives in Trump’s government and all of them want to see Trump fail.

This failed raid is only piled on top of the continued fight against the president’s travel order from last week.

But all of this tends to remind the country just how dangerous our world is due to Muslim terror and with that in mind the Trump administration released a list of 78 terror attacks that the media hopes you forget ever happened.

“It’s gotten to a point where it’s not even being reported, and in many cases the very, very dishonest press doesn’t want to report it,” Trump told senior members of the U.S. military on Monday.

Some of the attacks on this list, such as the bombings in Paris and Brussels and the terrible attack in San Bernardino, California, did get world wide coverage, granted. But many others were quickly swept under the media rug and the Trump administration wants us all to understand that terror attacks don’t happen infrequently. Indeed, the world is being hit by an almost daily deluge of terror attacks.
