Back Door War: SecDef Admits US Troops In Gaza May See Combat

by | May 1, 2024

In a fascinating exchange US Rep. Matt Gaetz probed US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin about the role of the estimated 1,000 US troops involved in building a floating pier to deliver aid to Gaza. Austin insisted that they were not “boots on the ground” although he admitted they would be armed and would respond to incoming fire. Injecting US troops into a warzone requires a Congressional vote, Gaetz warned Austin. Also today: Pro-life activist meets US “justice” system. Finally: Cheating on mail-in ballots? Say it ain’t so!
