The US government had plenty of time to prepare for this by setting up missile shields and evacuating our troops, instead they appear to have let our troops get hit and then lied to cover it up.

From NPR, "109 U.S. Troops Suffered Brain Injuries In Iran Strike, Pentagon Says":
Debris and rubble are seen at the site where an Iranian missile struck Ain al-Asad air base in Iraq's Anbar province in January. The U.S. has repeatedly raised its injury report from the strike; it now says 109 personnel suffered brain injuries.

The Defense Department says 45 more U.S. service members have been diagnosed with traumatic brain injuries after Iran's attack on the Ain al-Asad airbase in Iraq last month -- raising the total number of troops injured in the ballistic missile strike to 109.

[...] Monday's update is at least the fifth time the U.S. has revised the number of personnel injured during the Iranian attack.

President Trump initially reported no U.S. troops were injured. "No Americans were harmed in last night's attack by the Iranian regime," Trump said shortly after the strike. He added, "We suffered no casualties."

But the Pentagon later said that 11 people had suffered TBI. And on Jan. 24, the number jumped to 34. Nearly a week later, the Pentagon said 50 personnel were injured, only to revise the figure days later to 64.
My previous commentary still stands.
