Pentagon Officials: No Actionable Intelligence From Yemen Raid
Computers and cellphones seized during that raid offered clues about attacks al-Qaida could carry out in the future, including insights into new types of hidden explosives the group is making and new training tactics for militants, USA officials said.
"The Pentagon says Navy SEALs scooped up laptops, hard drives and cell phones in last month's Yemen raid, but multiple us officials told NBC News that none of the intelligence gleaned from the operation so far has proven actionable or vital - contrary to what President Trump said in his speech to Congress Tuesday", said an NBC report. They said US airstrikes targeted al-Qaeda artillery and other sites, and that no US Navy ships participated in the mission.
This is in keeping with what other U.S. officials said just two days prior, that no "actionable" intelligence was gathered in the raid, but is in direct contradiction to claims by President Trump last night at the Congressional address, and Vice President Mike Pence today, that "significant" intelligence was obtained. In addition to Owens, 14 militants and several civilians were killed.
The operation has come under fire from some lawmakers and Owens's father, who has asked for an investigation and questioned why the raid was carried out in the first place. Owens told the newspaper that he refused to meet with Trump at Dover Air Force Base in DE during the "dignified transfer" of his son's remains.

Military sources are contradicting Pres. Donald Trump's claim that the botched raid in Yemen on January 29 was "a highly successful raid that generated large amounts of vital intelligence".
The strikes appear to be the first USA operation to target the terror group since the January 29 raid that left Chief Petty Officer William "Ryan" Owens dead, along with several other service members wounded. "Ryan died as he lived - a warrior and a hero - battling against terrorism and securing our nation", he said. If he's willing to tell the president that, knowing it'll be relayed to America, why not say so himself?
