3/26/17 Iona Craig on the truth about Trump’s ‘Highly Successful’ January SEAL raid in Yemen

Iona Craig, a British-Irish independent journalist, discusses the result of President Trump’s first authorized counterterrorism operation – a SEAL raid on the Yemeni village of al Ghayil that left many civilians dead, including 10 children under 13 years old. The Intercept’s on-the-ground reporting after the raid, combined with eyewitness testimony of surviving villagers, contradict the Trump administration’s claims about the nature and success of the operation.
