WASHINGTON — Special Operations Association of America (SOAA) applauds the CIA for their successful Sunday morning drone strike on Al-Qaida leader Ayman al-Zawahiri. He was killed on a balcony in downtown Kabul, the strike had no fatalities or injuries among civilians or the target’s family.

However, SOAA calls for answers to outstanding questions about the circumstances of this strike, the impact, and the overall strategy to protect American interests.

“The veteran community is left to wonder, had we not left our longest conflict in disgrace, and botched the withdrawal, would Al-Qaida’s leadership have been sitting in the middle of Kabul?” said Daniel Elkins, founder of Special Operations Association of America.

“America was left weaker from that botched pullout, our wartime allies no longer have faith in America to uphold their moral obligation, and troop and veteran morale was decimated as veterans of the Afghan war watched as their interpreters were left behind for slaughter.”

President Biden said of the strike, “We will always remain vigilant, and we will act — and we will always do what is necessary to ensure the safety and security of Americans at home and around the globe.”

Daniel Elkins, the founder of SOAA, made the following statements:

The CIA carried out a very successful strike under the leadership of President Biden, the quiet professionals in the US Government represent the best of our nation. However, if the administration insists they are committed to the safety of Americans at home and abroad, then why are there still Americans and our allies in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan, and what will happen to those Americans and our allies now?

The death of Zawahiri, a long-time target of the US government, greatly benefits the Taliban’s Minister of the Interior, Siraj Haqqani, whose father was an advisor to Bin Laden at the time of the 9/11 attacks. While Zawahiri’s death was a long time coming, the question remains whether the US negotiated this with the Taliban or Pakistan and if Haqqani fed Zawahiri’s location to the US or Pakistan.

The US cannot and should not fight forever wars. We cannot be the global police. Our nation is the best in the world because of our service members, first responders, and patriots who run toward the crisis. For their sake we need answers and SOAA will continue to ask the questions including those about this latest development in Afghanistan.

  1. Reading the statement from the SOAA tells me that (if they truly believe this) these people are no less brainwashed than the average American, who doesn’t know up from down in the geopolitical arena. In case these guys from the SO community don’t know it (I’m pretty sure they do) their use has primarily been illegal ops that are used to twist arms of weaker countries…or eliminate political adversaries. They are not fighting America’s enemies, they are making them. The entire departure from Afghan was staged to look as bad as they could make it, with US MSM even showing fake planes as real with ‘people chasing it as it left’. As for the Taliban, we’ve been financing them the same as Al Qaeda. Would it be a stretch to conclude it’s all theater? US military lives lost are mere collateral damage or just unfortunate…at least by Kissinger’s’ standards…as in the end our leaders could give a shit…until they are on TV that is. That Zawahiri’s body wasn’t found is par. Makes one wonder what the ‘target’ really was…or if there even was one. Likely the target was political chaos. Add the ‘botched’ departure to American patriotism, then a dose of Trump’s BS rhetoric and what do you have? Even more division in the US people. Ahhh, success!

  2. The Afghan authorities did not find the body of the leader of the terrorist group “Al-Qaeda” (a terrorist organization banned in Russia ) Ayman al-Zawahiri at the site of the US missile attack. This was stated by the representative of the Taliban movement (a terrorist organization banned in Russia) that controls the country, Zabihullah Mujahid , writes RIA Novosti .

    “We did not find any body in the place that was hit by the American drone,” Mujahid announced at a meeting with reporters.

    • Just like with Osama bin Laden, Andy, the same Special Operations Association of America folks not only killed him in Pakistan but dumped the body in the ocean. Nothing about this is real, just elaboration on the ultimate falsehood, the official narrative of 9/11.
