Were civilians killed in Yeman raid?

If wearing civilian clothes means you’re a civilian then I suppose they were all civilians.

The U.S. military said on Wednesday it was looking into whether more civilians were killed in a raid on al Qaeda in Yemen on the weekend, in the first operation authorized by President Donald Trump as commander in chief.

U.S. Navy SEAL William “Ryan” Owens was killed in the raid on a branch of al Qaeda, also known as AQAP, in al Bayda province, which the Pentagon said also killed 14 militants. However, medics at the scene said about 30 people, including 10 women and children, were killed.

U.S. Central Command said in a statement that an investigating team had "concluded regrettably that civilian non-combatants were likely killed" during Sunday’s raid. It said children may have been among the casualties.

Why? Because these A**holes surround themselves with their women and their never ending number of offspring.

Some of the women were firing at the U.S. force, Pentagon spokesman Captain Jeff Davis told reporters.

Sorry, it’s not about civilians, they are not innocent. The Raid was not botched as some media outlets are portraying it. In fact it appears a large amount of very valuable intelligence has been found at the raid site. 

This is the environment we are fighting in and have been for over 15 years. We are not just fighting the terrorist but the media and dishonest reporting.
