Pentagon puts out 10-year-old video to show the success of the raid in Yemen 

A mistake at the highest level of the Pentagon. SEAL Team 6 conducted a raid in Yemen. It was the first boots on the ground action taken under President Donald Trump.

There is an ongoing debate about the success of the mission. The White House claims the mission was successful. The raid left a number of people dead including a Navy Seal and an 8-year-old American
citizen.

BACK TO SLIDE

To show how successful the raid was, the U.S. Military put out a video to back it up. The only problem was, the video isn't from the raid in Yemen.

The clips are ten years old and are part of an old Al Qaeda propaganda video. CENTCOM, the Pentagon's image and video site, said it uploaded the old videos by mistake.

Right now, we don't know when or if the correct video will ever be released.
