SOF Raid Rescues American Woman In Honduras

| March 25, 2020

Secretary of Defense Mark Esper announced on Monday that an American woman was rescued during a daring military raid in Honduras.

Skippy sends.

Esper intentionally revealed very little details about the mission, but here is what we know:

1. A young American woman was the “victim of a violent crime” in the Central American nation.

2. She has been returned to the United States

3. President Trump credited Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Mark Milley for “Taking care of it.” Trump also said, “We went in and we got her out, but that was rough stuff.”

Honduras had recently closed its borders due to the Covid-19 pandemic. US Southern Command was there retrieving a stranded American women’s tackle football team, and likely simultaneously carried out the rescue raid.

One could also speculate that the raid was carried out, or at least partly facilitated by a private security corporation known as Global Guardian, which is comprised of former special operations veterans. Global Guardian had just rescued 144 Americans and Canadians who were stranded on the Honduras island Roatan.

The following video by Staff Sgt. Lance Valencia of Joint Base Charleston Public Affairs shows the US women’s football team safely arriving in the States.

    Amazing not one report of this in the news
    Until this morning and then only on Univision
    Kick A$$ work by those high speeds doing
    This clean up, great job

  2. Doesn’t sound like a daring Mil. raid which Esper claims, when the CEO of the private company had arranged between the US Embassy, Honduran Govt. and the FAA to get the people out.

      The raid to get the woman who was held captive was “daring” as she was a sex trafficking victim. The football team’s rescue was pre-arranged.

    Good.

    The only thing we actually need to know is that the event occurred. Don’t need to know details. And we don’t need to speculate about the details.

    Anyone else wondering about why we are ‘rescuing’ a stranded women’s tackle team from behind a quarantine? I applaud the OPSEC, but it sure sounds like there is a lot more to that story than someone is saying. Not that we will ever hear about it from “the sky is FALLING!” media.

    It’s a fooken resort island. And pretty nice one at that.

    “Global Guardian, which is comprised of former special operations veterans. Global Guardian had just rescued 144 Americans and Canadians who were stranded on the Honduras island Roatan.”

    ????daHell???? Oh well, mine’s not to reason why, mine’s just to close my eye.

    Twas almost hard to tell where the wimmins was in that video. Good thing I had that one eye closed when they FIRST got off that aircraft. I’ll just move the eyepatch over and continue the mission.

      There was wimmins”
      Reminds me of a book title; “The Ugly American”.

      I think they didn’t rescue that football team as much as they rescued Honduras.

    If it was a SEAL team op, I expect the book and movie are already in production.
