In addition to helping the Saudi-led coalition invading Yemen, the US has a deployed a small number of troops on the ground to battle Al-Qaeda militants around a key port city, the Pentagon has admitted. A US Navy task force is also on station nearby.The US military has been “providing limited support” to the coalition led by Saudi Arabia in the fight against Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), Navy Captain Jeff Davis, a Pentagon spokesman, told reporters Friday. While Davis would not disclose the number of troops or their location, Pentagon officials confirmed that the US force was deployed near the near the city of Al-Mukalla, a port in the southern Hadramaut region of Yemen under AQAP control. The US is providing “intelligence, maritime support, airborne intelligence surveillance and reconnaissance, aerial refueling, and medical aid” to forces loyal to the Saudi-backed government in Yemen, as well as Saudi and Emirati forces engaged around Al-Mukalla, The Washington Post reported. These operations are separate from the Saudi-led campaign against the Houthi rebels, which began in March last year. The US has assisted the Saudis with mid-air refueling and “some reconnaissance capabilities,” Pentagon officials said. Can we now say another illegal war is going on halfway around the world, without the American people or congress or the senate knowing about it. If we have troops in Yemen then that would only mean were working with Saudi forces, you know that country who funded the 9/11 terrorist. The conflict in Yemen has been ongoing for about a year now, so that would mean the Pentagon and Obama been supplying Saudi forces with American help. Let's see if Iran gets word of this info, since Iran is also fighting in Yemen against Saudi rebel fighters. Helping out the nation who took part in 9/11 WTF!!!
