MiamiHerald / Enough already.
A brave soldier from Miami is killed in a brutal ambush, and it’s almost overshadowed by a nasty back-and-forth between the president, his chief of staff and a Miami congresswoman.
Let’s keep our eye on the ball. The headline here is that an outstanding young man, Sgt. La David Johnson of Miami Gardens, who was totally dedicated to his family and to improving their lot in life through an Army career, died under murky circumstances. We need to know what those circumstances were and why he was left on the battlefield for nearly 48 hours.
Johnson was one of four Army rangers massacred by an ISIS-related group in Niger. It was the worst military loss of life in President Trump’s tenure. Yet he said nothing about it for 12 days, and then only that he planned to call the soldiers’ families – unlike President Obama and other presidents. That would be the first in a long string of untruths and outright liesby the president. But what else is new?
