CNN Confirms that Yemen Raid Yielded Actionable Intelligence

CNN Pentagon correspondent Barbara Starr confirmed on New Day Friday that the Yemen raid that cost a Navy SEAL his life yielded actionable intelligence.

“What we’re learning from sources we’re talking to, U.S. officials, they say that they have been able to take some action on the intelligence gathered,” Starr reported.

The intelligence revealed “hundreds of contacts in the electronic data they gathered,” which could include possible al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) operatives.

Starr also pointed out that allied airstrikes hit AQAP targets overnight in Yemen.
