I've heard some minimization about the attack. Many are claiming he is a nobody, he's just an accountant.

A lot of people in business failed to notice the accountants too. Usually when their importance is realized. That accountant is gone and the wheels are getting ready to fall off the whole ride.

If that man is the leader of finances for Isis it could be a very major blow indeed.

Will The Real Abu Sayyaf Please Stand Up?

That puzzled me, too, given their notoriety and news exposure in past years: Abu Sayyaf (Filipino Islamist group)

Given that the name means "father of the swordsmith", though, it's plausible that someone other than Abu Sayyaf Philippines could use the name.

After all, there are a lot of people named "Mohammed" running around, but that doesn't mean they're all the original Mohammed.

Maybe Abu Sayyaf Philippines should change their name to "The Original Abu Sayyaf" just to be safe.

Since I am sure you are searching the same information as the Intelligence agencies seems you have solved this case.
By the way, were you able to find any of the Delta Operators involved in your search also?

They probably have their selfies posted all over their Facebook page by now.

There is no biography for an individual with that name so if he does exist he would seem to not be in the upper echelons as they claim ,something does smell about this Blackwater/XE types would allow plausible deniability but uniformed US troops in Syria raises some major concerns.

The Medium Is The Message

a reply to: khnum

There's always more to stories like these.

The U.S. government only says what it wants people to hear, and it is longstanding DoD policy to use information as a weapon. And as a weapon, a single piece of information can serve many purposes.

A message is definitely being sent in this instance, but as is so often the case, its exact nature may be a lot more subtle than it appears on the surface.

It will be interesting to see what follows -- from the U.S., from the Islamic State, and from other Middle East players.

Make up random name and claim he is terrorist leader, then show no proof of said leadership and kill the guy

Too bad he had a wife that is now in custody as well as a slave girl freed from depravity to show your position is total bunk.

Looks like ISIS got what it wished for. Thankful no US personnel were injured.

Yes something happened but the official story just like the Bin Laden story in my opinion is bulldust you are entitled to believe what the DOD says but you will never get proof of this story that I do guarantee, of more interest to me actually is five years ago this would of been a 30 page thread instead of a three page one.

Even if they did it would be all "D" notice anyway, they are working on ISIS in Iraq I would imagine.

Not THIS president he can't keep SQUAT secret.
Republicans have traditionally been the masters of secrecy to hide their lies.

I'm sure most of these scumbags have never shot at somebody who was shooting back at them. It takes a cool head to take an aimed shot while under fire. On a lighter note, I prefer Family Guy!

Hasn't anybody realized that Terrorist Organizations are like Hydra?

Cut one head off, two more appear.

These people are just cogs in an ideological wheel. Until you solve that issue, there's always somebody, more crazy than the last person, to take up the mantle of crazy.

~Tenth


That's the trouble with crazy. Crazy does not respond to anything but attrition. It is like a line that is stepped over, a black hole on the other side. The other problem with crazy, is that there are some outside groups that think they are sane.

Maybe they can bag Abu Waheeb next.

I think taking him out of the frame would do more damage to their organization.

But alas he is in Iraq. Its just more prudent to launch raids in countries you aren't or ever been at war with. (Sarcasm)
