President Trump Confirms US Special Forces Raid & Death of ISIS Leader Baghdadi

President Donald Trump announced today that the United States conducted a raid on a compound in Idlib Province, Syria, that resulted in the death of Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the Islamic State. Baghdadi, Trump said, died trapped in a tunnel with U.S. special forces operators, including canines, closing in on him. Trump, who watched the entire operation from the Situation Room in the White House, said that Baghdadi was “screaming, crying, and whimpering.”

    My thoughts, too. Thank G-d for a President not afraid to speak the truth. Jihadists are animals and if our military assists in freeing or protecting a nation or people, America should benefit.

    Clearly this is an administration that can walk and chew gum at the same time.

    In Syria, Trump really was playing “multidimensional chess”!
