It’s just been released that President Obama has put out a statement that the United States provided military support to France’s attempted hostage rescue in Somalia.
The publicly released letter, which can be seen below, states that the U.S. provided “combat aircraft” support to French ground forces.
In my personal opinion, I would say that Air Force AC-130 gunships were circling above the target area. For the past few years our AC-130 gunships have been utilized numerous times against militants in the Horn of Africa.
It is also possible that fighter planes might have been involved – but in an operation like this I wouldn’t put money on it.

@Txazz @RichDD BTW, off topic, application for adoption of MWD is done.
@TheAtrium @Iassen Donov you ain't gotta love it, just gotta do it
Hurray for Obama! Im so glad he isn't taking our AR15 while he's helping the French
@RichDD @Txazz I agree, of course. This time the French went in way ahead of schedule and in two countries same time. They must have had a plan but, it backfired with the hostage rescue. Thing is, will they execute Allex now?
Micheal Scheuer, ex CIA, stated that we got our butt kicked in Iraq and Afgh. Also said the french will get there butt kicked in Mali. I just saw this on Blaze TV. Is the US gonna get in this one too,more than air support? Our guy's haven't got there butt's kicked. Rule's of engagement????
