Operational tempo against al Qaeda in Yemen increases since special ops raid

Washington Post:
Accelerating Yemen effort, U.S. sends largest flurry of strikes in recent history

A defense official said the U.S. military targeted al-Qaeda with 25 airstrikes, far more in a single night than the United States has conducted in quite awhile.
This looks like an attempt to exploit the intelligence recovered in the special ops raid before al Qaeda can move its operations.  It is also consistent with President Trump's policy of destroying radical Islamic terrorists.  Those critical of the raid were probably wrong about its results.
