UPDATE: Three servicemen were killed in the attack, including one America. An additional two locals were wounded.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of our teammates who lost their lives today,” said U.S. Army General Stephen Townsend, the chief of Africa Command.
“As we honor their sacrifice, let’s also harden our resolve. Alongside our African and international partners, we will pursue those responsible for this attack and al-Shabaab who seeks to harm Americans and U.S. interests. We remain committed to preventing al-Shabaab from maintaining a safe haven to plan deadly attacks against the U.S. homeland, East African, and international partners.”
U.S. military command Africom confirmed an attack today on a small U.S. base in Kenya. The aggression was committed by the terror group al-Shabaab at Manda Bay Airfield.
Obviously security was not adequate at the airfield. One wonders if there will accountability which has been lacking in the U.S. military since the Obama administration.
