Former Gitmo detainee killed in strike against AQAP

Washington -- Reuters reported on Monday that a March 2nd strike on Al Qaeda in the Arab Peninsula (AQAP) in Yemen killed a former Guantanamo Bay Detention Center detainee.

"We can confirm the death of former Guantanamo Bay detainee, Yasir al Silmi," US Navy Capt. Jeff Davis said. 

Davis, the Pentagon spokesman, said that al Silmi had been held at Gitmo from 2002 to 2009 and then repatriated back to Yemen after the Obama administration cut him loose.

Davis added that over 40 strikes against AQAP were carried out by the U.S. over the past five nights [and would continue to target the jihadist scum].

Since a January commando raid, the United States has clearly wanted to strike AQAP and recover what U.S. officials acknowledge has been an intelligence shortfall about the group after we were forced to close our Yemen embassy in 2015 due to their civil war. 

So it's looking as if President Trump actually wants to win this war on radical Islamic terrorism.
