Caliphate Is FINISHED, ISIS Leader Is DEAD!


Late Saturday night Pres Trump tweeted “Something very big has just happened!”…

Twitterverse was lit with speculation from silly to serious including this tweet from WaPo columnist Josh Rogin

…followed with this from Ryan Fournier

That turned out not to be true, so it’s an example WHY we must hold off reporting on big events like this until it is confirmed.

Annahar News tweeted out (via Google translate)
“United States: Raid targeted ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and led to his death”

Newsweek issued story Trump Approves Special Ops Raid Targeting ISIS Leader Baghdadi and Military Says He’s Dead where they stated “the Defense Department told the White House they have ‘high confidence’ that the high-value target killed was Baghdadi, but further verification is pending.” Key word there PENDING, but that didn’t stop countless people (who get upset when unverified info is shoveled out) to report the head of ISIS was dead!

It is now confirmed, through biometric testing, the head of ISIS is dead after detonating a suicide vest as US Special Forces moved in during a 2 hour raid in Idlib, Syria!!

Jennifer Griffin reports:
“ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi dead, killed in US raid in Idlib, according to senior US military source. Baghdadi’s identity has been confirmed. “We long suspected Baghdadi was hiding in Idlib,” US source said.

I am told 50-70 American military service members involved in the raid- pulled from US Army Delta Force and Rangers. About 6 helicopters involved in raid. “It was a partnered mission,” US official source tells me. Baghdadi was killed when he detonated suicide vest.

Biometrics (facial recognition) immediately identified Baghdadi- in suicide bombing head removed intact. DNA also used – typically takes a day for DNA results. US forces launched from Erbil, Iraq. There had been reports of sightings of Baghdadi in Idlib for some time,US official.”

To all the Never Trumpers and doubters about Pres Trump’s foreign policy and handling of the middle east…
