General Raymond Thomas III, the current commander of the United States Special Operations Command (U.S. SOCOM), stated that the current death toll of ISIS fighters by U.S. and coalition forces has reached 60,000.
“We have killed over 60,000,” he said, while speaking in Bethesda, Maryland.
The General spoke at the National Defense Industrial Associations Special Operations Low-Intensity Conflict Symposium in Bethesda where he made quite a few resounding remarks.
“Our government continues to be in unbelievable turmoil,” he said. “I hope they sort it out soon because we’re a nation at war.”
While it was not immediately clear what General Thomas meant by the statement, he clarified his statements later in the day.
“As a commander, I’m concerned our government be as stable as possible,” he stated.
While he did not mention Lt. General Flynn directly, Thomas’ statements came less than 24 hours after the President received the resignation of the former National Security Advisor last Monday.
