The latest outrage on social media is the death of an eight year old girl in Yemen.  The headlines usually mention Trump.   Before giving the facts on this, let me say the death of this 8 year old is sad. That is not disputable.  Now for a few facts: 
1. It was a military raid, authorized by Trump for sure, but he was not there and did not kill the girl himself. http://6abc.com/news/1-us-service-member-killed-3-wounded-in-yemen-raid/1726534/
2. The girl was a sibling to a 16 year old male killed in a military action authorized by Obama. 
3. Both were children of  Anwar -al - Awlaki, a radical cleric with ties to Al Qaeda.  He was killed in an action in 2011, which would also have been in Obama's presidency.
