mission when it wasn't even barely a week into his administration." under the cover of night on january 28th, sooelt -- s.e.a.l. team 6 became pinned down outside the al qaeda compound. they were forced to call in a helicopter gunship to silence the fire. 14 al qaeda operatives and at least 15 civilians were killed in the firefight. owens also was killed and a $72 million evacaircraft crash landed and had to be destroyed. >> the timing was linked to a broader offensive we're pursuing in yemen. >> reporter: army general joseph patel commander of us central command, told david martin was told preparation for the operation was thorough. the raid was monitored in real-time. >> some people have called this success. some people have called it a failure. what would you call it? >> again, the object was to go in and collect intelligence. we accomplished that. from that perspective it was successful. i certainly understand how the family would look at this in a different light.
2:12 am
>> reporter: now, white house press secretary sean spicer said the pentagon is conducting a review of the battle in yemen, which is standard whenever a mission results in losses of life. and scott, spicer also offered his condolences to the owens' family on behalf of the president. >> jan crawford, thanks. terrorism is one reason the secret service is tailing the president's children, but when his adult children are running global businesses, the taxpayers' bill runs high. anna werner has looked into that. >> reporter: by wednesday eric trump will have gone to four countries on trump company business since january 1st, each with secret service agents in tow. in early january it was a trip to uruguay for a glitzy party to promote a new property with a reported $100 0,00in hotel bills for secret service and other u.s. government personnel. then just a few weeks after the inauguration, he flew to the dominican republic, but not before secret service agents reportedly went for ut
2:13 am
advanced planning trip. within weeks eric and his brother donald, jr., flew to dubai for the gala opening of another trump property. and tomorrow night it's vancouver's turn, a new trump hotel that will be the city's second largest skyscraper. both brothers are expected to attend. and their secret service protection goes with them. the secret service won't say how much all those trips cost the agency, but taxpayers are footing the bills. the law requires protection for the president and vice president and their immediate families, but secret service coverage for adult children is optional. they could decline it. ronald reagan's son ron reagan eventually did just that. >> the taxpayers are stuck. >> reporter: washington university law professor kathleen clark teaches on ethics in government. >> the bottom line on how much it is costing the taxpayers, absolutely is something that i believe the public and congress has the right to know. >> reporter: we asked the trump organization if they expect th
2:14 am
president's sons to keep up their pace of international travel, and whether eric or donald, jr., have considered reimbursing for the cost of secret service protection on their business trips, but we got no response. scott, the secret service told us it has effectively adapted to the unique challenges of each administration. >> anna werner, thanks. today the japanese company takata pleaded guilty to fraud charges for concealing a defect in its air bags that caused some of them to explode. takata also agreed to pay $1 billion in criminal penalties. at least 11 deaths are linked to the air bags, which led to the largest recall in automotive history, 42 million vehicles. coming up next, accountants take the blame for a certified public screwup at the oscars. and "moonlight" gives hope to inner city kids in the sunshine state.
