Remember Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi? That’s the motherfucker responsible for the kidnapping of Kayla Mueller, who was taken in 2013 while serving as an aid worker and was reportedly raped by al-Baghdadi before she was crushed by debris in an airstrike. Steven Sotloff, a journalist, and Peter Kassig, an aid worker, were both beheaded at al-Baghdadi’s orders after being kidnapped by ISIS forces.
The head of what Obama described as the “JV Team” has been taken out.

The suicide of Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was preceded by a largescale U.S. Special Operations forces raid on a compound in northern Syria’s Idlib Province, where the terrorist leader was thought to be hiding.
In an address to the nation on Sunday, President Trump said that planning for the raid on al-Baghdadi’s compound began two weeks ago when the U.S. gained unspecified intelligence on al-Baghdadi’s whereabouts.
Unlike the raid in Pakistan in 2011 that led to the death of Osama bin Laden, which was carried out by a small team of U.S. Navy Seals, the raid on al-Baghdadi’s compound was a relatively large assault by U.S. forces with a reported eight military helicopters landing in the Barisha area north of Idlib city — a few kilometers from the Turkish border.
The helicopters flew fast and low to the ground on their approach to the compound and U.S. forces – between 50 and 70 soldiers from the U.S. Army Delta Force and Rangers – were met with sporadic gunfire. But the president said that no American troops or personnel were killed or injured during the raid, during his Sunday morning announcement at the White House.
……Trump said U.S. forces breached the walls of the compound since the doors and other entryways were booby-trapped with explosives. Once inside the compound, the U.S. troops chased al-Baghdadi, along with three of the terrorist group leader’s children, into a “dead-end tunnel.”
Once inside the tunnel, al-Baghdadi set off a suicide vest he was wearing, immediately killing himself and his children, while also partially collapsing the tunnel. Trump said U.S. military dogs chased the terrorist into the tunnel and it was reported that at least one of the dogs was injured during the raid.
“He died after running into a dead-end tunnel, whimpering and crying and screaming,” Trump said. “The thug who tried so hard to intimidate others spent his last moments in utter fear, panic and dread – terrified of the American Forces bearing down.”
While al-Baghdadi’s body was severely mutilated in the explosion, his identity was positively confirmed by a DNA test conducted onsite.
Trump made another smart move by keeping the raid secret from Pelosi and the rest of the Dem cabal: “We were going to notify them last night but we decided not to do that because Washington leaks like I’ve never seen before.” The DemRats think nothing of leaking classified information regardless of risking of lives and compromising missions. I wouldn’t trust them either.
The WaPo announced the death with its usual odious style.
“Regarding our al-Baghdadi obituary, the headline should never have read that way and we changed it quickly,” said Washington Post Vice President of Communications Kristine Coratti Kelly. Bullshit. Your rag meant exactly what it published the first time.
Notice the disparity:
BTW: According to reports, the cocksucker Bin Laden was buried at sea after a respectful funeral. The ceremony was conducted by a muslim sailor. How touching. I wonder if they played taps. Obama’s affinity for radical muslims is well documented. He shamelessly pandered; celebrating the holidays of a brutal Islamic subculture, making apologies to them, and forced Army Commanders to do the same. He let them waltz through airport security, and gave aid to Hamas, the PLO, and the Muslim Brotherhood thugs in Egypt, and feted them at the White House.
This is the kind of excrement that was so prevalent in Obama’s regime:
James A. Winnefeld, Obama's VJCS, complains that President Trump was "piling on humiliation" in describing the killing of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi

President Trump is the complete opposite. He prefers to kill the enemy, not kiss their ass.
The Dems just got sucker punched:
President Trump’s successful operation to take out Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi sent Democrats scrambling on Sunday, as several top party leaders had complained publicly in recent days that the White House had no “real plan” to combat the terror group following the U.S. pullout in Syria.
In a dramatic sign of how Democrats’ messaging apparently backfired, NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” ran an ill-timed sketch suggesting that Trump had created “jobs” for ISIS — just hours before the president held a news conference announcing al-Baghdadi’s demise. The sketch aired around the time the two-hour late-night raid in northwest Syria was underway.
“It’s genuinely fascinating watching Democrats in real-time struggle to figure out what to say about this,” journalist Glenn Greenwald wrote on Sunday. “They want to be patriotic and anti-ISIS, but also need a way to malign Trump without contradicting their gushing Obama praise over [Usama bin Laden]: not an easy balancing act. Good luck!”
Congratulations to the SpecOps and President Trump for the successful eradication of a muzzie terrorist shitbag.
It should be the first of many.
