This week, a hostage was rescued in Africa by an American special operations mission.
The U.S. military has revealed that American special operations personnel recently freed hostages from someplace on the African continent, however, details are still limited.
Suellen Tennyson, an 83-year-old nun who was kidnapped in Burkina Faso in northwest Africa earlier this year, has been found safe, according to Catholic Church spokespeople. though any direct connection between Suellen and the hostage rescue is currently unclear. Army Gen. Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, first addressed the operation in a speech at a ceremony yesterday to commemorate the transfer of command of SOCOM from Army Gen. Richard Clarke to Army Gen. Bryan Fenton. Throughout his speech, Milley cited a number of noteworthy achievements made by the US special operations troops while Clarke was in charge.
