Don't blame me for SEAL's death

Don't blame me for SEAL's death

The President delivered a tribute to Carryn Owens, the widow of US Navy SEAL Senior Chief William "Ryan" Owens, who was killed in January. "Ryan died as he lived: a warrior, and a hero - battling against terrorism and securing our nation", Trump said. "And none are greater or braver than those who fight for America in uniform", said Mr Trump, who then went on to say they were "blessed" to be joined by Mrs Owens.

Trump recognized the widow of Owens during his address, in what was the most emotional moment of the night, triggering a 2-minute standing ovation from both Republicans and Democrats while Carryn Owens broke down in tears. "And we will never forget Ryan". That doesn't change the fact that the sacrifices of men like Ryan Owens-and the widows such as Carryn they leave behind-deserve to be remembered.

The officials say the information collected during the raid is not actionable and the US intelligence community already knew most of the collected intel.

The former Dolezal has acknowledged that she is "Caucasian biologically" but says she identifies as black. A woman who faked being black until she was outed by her parents has given herself a new Nigerian name.

Many are expecting a bump in President Trump's approval ratings following the generally well-received speech.

Speaking to Congress, Trump said that the clandestine operation - which failed to kill the leader of al-Qaeda in the Arab Peninsula (AQAP) Qasim al Raymi and gather intelligence on the terrorist group - was a complete success. He made the call, although to hear him tell it, they did.

Before Trump, presidents traditionally assumed the blame for misguided military actions, even while under scrutiny for making mistakes that cost people's lives, The Huffington Post notes.

Scientists Think They've Found the Oldest Fossil Ever
Fossils are dated by the rock they're found in, and to determine when a rock was formed is far from an exact science. The next-oldest confirmed fossil is 3.5 billion years old, the study says.

They - the generals - wanted to do it. I understand why so many pundits were eager to seize on this portion of the president's remarks as the most important of the evening.

In the interview with "Fox and Friends" Tuesday, Trump refused to name any example of a time when he had been justifiably criticized. Now, there is a lot he said in that speech that was counter factual, that was not right and I oppose and will oppose but he did something tonight that you can't take away from him.

Bill Owens, the slain officer's father, is now demanding an investigation into his son's death, saying he couldn't bear to meet Trump at the airport as the dead soldier's casket arrived in a military plane.
