NBC news reported tonight that U.S. raid in Yemen failed -- hostages killed.

U.S. raid to rescue two hostages, one a journalist. Captors spotted the U.S. rescuers and a firefight ensued. Hostages were killed.

That's all I got so far.

3. 2nd attempt in two weeks

Sounds really sad -- the South American was going to be released through other efforts, but apparently the WH did not know that, and ordered that both men be "liberated". They were killed.

8. One link you posted had ZERO responses, the other two had a combined 15.

 

I don't think that's a lot of discussion, and I think I know why... No one wants to discuss that which might be seen as a negative in the context of President Obama okaying the mission.
