The Pentagon’s spokesman says the attack in which IS fighters penetrated Kurdish Peshmerga lines and killed U.S. Petty Officer 1st Class Charles Keating was a SURPRISE
Press secretary Peter Cook told reporters Thursday that if the U.S. had been able to anticipate the attack in northern Iraq, then U.S. forces would have responded differently.With all the drones and planes can nobody see ISIS? Were they camouflaged so were they were invisible ?
Cook says that if U.S. forces there had been able to see the attack coming, “perhaps this could have been avoided.” He says the event is being carefully reviewed by the U.S. military. HELL don’t worry about it now , it’s to late. At this time WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE NOW.
Keating is the third U.S. service member to be killed in combat in Iraq since U.S. forces returned there in 2014. Prayers to the family.
