The Pentagon reports a second straight night of airstrikes against Islamic State targets in Syria, with at least ten hits on ISIS facilities in the war-torn country. And it’s the fact that the bombs and missiles are flying at night that greatly concerns a noted military analyst.
Appearing on Fox News, Lt. Col. Ralph Peters launched his own attack against the timing of the airstrikes, which he contended were “designed to limit terrorist casualties.”
“If you wanted to kill terrorists, you would have hit those headquarters and compounds and logistics sites at 10 or 11 in the morning, when they were crowded with leaders, staff officers, flunkeys, etc. Instead, we hit empty buildings at night.
Lt. Col. Peters began his discussion with Sean Hannity by responding to what Charles Krauthammer had earlier said about Turkey’s non-participation in the fight against ISIS.
