“SEAL, American Girl Die in First Trump-Era U.S. Military Raid” NBC News

Robert WIndrem, William M. Arkin, Courtney Kube, and Charlene Gubash write that during the first military raid carried out under President Donald Trump two Americans were killed, the 8-year-old daughter of Anwar al-Awlaki and a member of Seal Team 6. Karen Greenberg noted that, “intentional or not, the deaths of three al-Awlaki family members will enhance the al Qaeda narrative. The perception will be that it's not enough to kill al-Awlaki — that the U.S. had to kill the entire family.” The raid was intended to capture intelligence, particularly from computer equipment.
