US Army sergeant La David Johnson killed in Niger attack not captured, despite reports



It's good the details of this incident are coming to light.  But, I remember when I first reported on this, the story was far from national. 
That didn't happened until that Florida congresswoman lied about President Trump.
Fox News reports U.S. Army Sgt. La David Johnson, one of four U.S. soldiers killed Oct. 4 in Niger when ambushed by Islamic extremists, was neither captured nor executed at close range, two senior U.S. defense officials confirmed to Fox News on Sunday.

A military investigation into Johnson’s death has concluded, one official said, and that the report — which is due out next month — is “much more comprehensive,” and looked at the entire operation, not just Johnson’s death.

Johnson, 25, was killed by enemy rifle and machine gun fire during the attack in which both American and Nigerien troops in a military convoy were ambushed by roughly 50 Islamic extremists.
