    When do we have a senate select committee to investigate the deaths of four Americans last week in Niger? Or, was it President Obama and/or Hillary's fault???

    Why didn't Obama explain it? He sent them

    On Feb. 20, 2013, President Barack Obama penned a brief letter to then-Speaker John Boehner notifying Congress that the Pentagon would deploy 40 troops to Niger, to conductr econnaissance flights, set up a drone base, and facilitate intelligence-gathering for French forces locked in a grueling battle with al Qaeda-affiliated militants in neighboring Mali.

    The deployment brought the total number of U.S. military personnel in the West African republic to 535, and while Obama didn’t specify which specific forces were setting up shop there, the commander-in-chief stated that the troops were deploying combat-ready “for the purpose of providing their own force protection and security.

    3 American troops have been killed in Niger — here's why the US has hundreds of troops in Africa

    U.S. Army Special Forces and Navy Seals are in every country in the world. Have been for years.
