VIA| According to recent reports, the United States successfully targeted and destroyed an ISIS training camp in western Libya—killing more than 40 jihadists.
“Destruction of the camp and Chouchane’s removal will eliminate an experienced facilitator and is expected to have an immediate impact on ISIL’s ability to facilitate its activities in Libya, including recruiting new ISIL members, establishing bases in Libya, and potentially planning external attacks on U.S. interests in the region,” a statement released by the Pentagon states.
Conservatives continue to argue that attacks like this should be done in bulk. Clearly, they offer success, but Obama is hesitant to take any major actions.
Fortunately, this attack likely took out a militant who was linked to two deadly attacks in Tunisia last year. Noureddine Chouchane is believed to be responsible for two major attacks last year—one at the Sousse beach resort and another at the Tunis museum.
What do you think? Do we need to increase the frequency of our attacks?
