Unnecessary American Soldier Deaths in Jordan

By | January 31, 2024

[January 31, 2024]  Here is a fact that all military personnel know: weak leadership always backfires and will get you killed.  The unnecessary U.S. Soldier deaths in Jordan a few days ago in an outpost in Jordan, killed by an Iranian proxy using a drone, is due to weak political leadership in America.  This is not my opinion; it is well-known that the fastest way to destroy an army is to put a weak leader in charge of them.

Three Soldiers were killed, and another 40 were injured in the attack on what is called Tower 22.  All were members of the 926th Engineer Brigade, Fort Moore, Georgia.  If you don’t recognize that fort, it was called Fort Benning until the DoD believed that the name Benning was too triggering to our Soldiers because Benning was a Confederate General during the U.S. Civil War.

“What I will say is our deepest ah ah condolences go out to our he heart felt condolences go out to families who lost three three brave, ah three brave, ah three brave, ah three folks who are our military folks, who are brave, who were always fighting, who are fighting on behalf of this Administration, the American people obviously so more importantly.  We lost those souls yesterday, the President said when he was in South Carolina.  Our hearts go out to their families, their friends.  There are also wounded soldier and military forces as well, and our hearts go out to them.” – White House spokesperson Karine Jean-Pierre, January 30, 2024 on MSNBC [this is as direct transcription as best I could do of her rambling]

Acknowledging the death of Soldiers is the right thing to do.  But this was a total failure by Karine Jean-Pierre.  “Three folks who are military folks, who are brave, are always fighting on behalf of this Administration…”  This is unbelievable.  Our military does NOT fight on behalf of “this Administration,” and an experienced spokesperson would know that.  Disgusting!  She didn’t know they were U.S. Army Soldiers, and this partly explains her stuttering response.

I could go on, but I don’t want to demean the sacrifice of these Soldiers.  God Bless them.

    We do NOT swear allegiance to the President or to his administration. The Democrat Party needs to get that straight in their stupid heads. This is how you do great damage to the integrity of our military and police forces. They need to step back and think a little bit before they open their mouths and do more damage to our country.

      Right. We’re Americans! Just in case KJB wasn’t paying attention. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  2. H. M. Longstreet

    Gen. Satterfield brought up an IMPORTANT POINT. The duty of our servicemembers is NOT to the Administration. The oath is to the office, not the person. despite what KJP says. Side note, does the Biden administration also view public service as service to the Biden administration? I can believe that in some high profile instances such as the effort to cover up the Biden family dealings.

      KJP was just pulling trash out of her a$$. Failure upon failure upon failure. She is an embarrassment to the nation.

    White House spokesperson Karine Jean-Pierre, and her epic fail. I honestly think she’s he worst press secretary in US history. Of course I’ve only seen the ones from 60’s on so I could be wrong.

    Legal Question: If the administration gives billions to an American enemy and they buy drones to kill Americans, is the President an accessory to murder? Asking for a friend.

      🤦‍♂️ Face slap to the US Biden Administration. 🤦‍♂️

      1. Pen Q

        Nailed it Willie. Too bad we have idiots in the Whitehouse AND in the Pentagon that can’t do anything right. The problem is that they start from a false assumption that the people of America are dumb and that politicians are superior to the ordinary citizen. WRONG. Plus they are also anti-religious, anti-family, and anti-democratic.

    Gov. Ron DeSantis: “…as commander-in-chief, I am not going to put our troops in harm’s way unless you’re willing to defend them with everything you have. Biden has them out there, they’re sitting ducks, he’s doing glancing blows, that’s just inviting more attacks from the Iranians. I would say you harm a hair on the head of an American service member and you are going to have hell to pay. We are not just going to sit there and let our service members be sitting ducks. And that’s true whether it’s Iran or whether it’s any country on the world. We have to be strong and we have to defend the people who defend us.”

    Weak leadership kills. Too much compassion kills. Joe Biden can’t make a decision. That also kills. And, that is where we are.

  7. Pastor John

    🙏 I agree with Rev Cain that we should pray for the lost soldiers in Jordan and also for their families. Let us never forget that these men and women are on the frontlines protecting us. No matter their job, rank, or ability, they raised their hand to voluntarily be there for us. 🙏

      Pray is needed for our national leaders and our servicemen and women

  8. Greg Heyman

    Excellent article. we need to continue to get the facts out about the weak or non-existent leadership with Joe Biden. BTW, where is Kamala Harris, who wants to be president. What did she say about this? Nothing is the answer. When something hard comes up, they run for their basements to hide in. Go figure.

      1. Jeff Blackwater

        Great memory The Northeast about this article. You beat me to it, and yet I wanted to be the first. But this quote is perfect in these circumstances. Joe Biden is a parasite on the butt of the American people. 😎

  9. Army Captain

    I salute those who lost their lives. I hear they were construction Engineers from the 926 Engr Bde out of Fort Benning, GA.

    Thank you, Gen. Satterfield for helping get the word out on this tragic, but very preventable event that was caused directly by Joe Biden and his weak and pandering policies. Others, including the diversity hire Lloyd Austin as SECDEF and those in the Pentagon are just a bunch of political generals with management expertise but zero leadership abilities. There is no place for a lack or weak leadership during war. We are now going into a cold WWIII and yet Biden is vacationing on the beach or eating ice cream in his basement. Maybe while he is in his basement, he might find a few more classified documents he stole.

    1. Rev. Michael Cain

      Worse than a pandemic. It’s a killer. Pray for those lost. 🙏
