military bulletin board

The Pentagon has failed to disclose up to thousands of air strikes the U.S. military carried out over several years in Iraq, Syria, and Afghanistan against militants in those countries, the Military Times reported on Sunday.
Last year, the United States carried out at least 456 air strikes in Afghanistan that were not documented in a U.S. Air Force database, the website reported. The air strikes were conducted by U.S. Army helicopters and drones.
The incomplete data could go back to October 2001, according to the Military Times, which describes itself as an independent news organization.
And in other military news, the U.S. president was planning a stop to visit with the capos likely to prosecute or spearhead the newest righteous military actions:

PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- President Donald Trump is making his first visit to the headquarters for U.S. Central Command and U.S. Special Operations Command.
Both military commands are headquartered at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida.

  1. Not a huge surprise. I remember one of the arguments about the potential for WMD in Iraq hinged on Clinton having bombed the crap out of them throughout his time in office. As i recall the only mention of it at the time was when they managed to bomb somebody's goat.
