4th US service member killed in Niger ambush

This is a holdover mission from the Obama regime. 
Do we really have to be in Niger?  Terrible news.  

ABC News reports the Pentagon has confirmed that a fourth U.S. soldier was killed in Africa earlier this week in an ambush believed to have been carried out by an Islamic extremist group. 

"The body of another U.S. service member has been recovered from the area of the attack, bringing the number of U.S. service members killed in this attack to four," Col. Rob Manning, Pentagon spokesperson, said in a statement on Friday. 

The soldier was declared missing shortly after Wednesday's ambush of a joint patrol of U.S. Army soldiers and Nigerien soldiers near the border with Mali that killed three other American soldiers.
The missing soldier's remains were found by Nigerien forces on Friday "in the vicinity" of the ambush said Col. Mark Cheadle, a spokesman for U.S. Africa Command.
