Could the much hyped, highly controversial Syria pullout have been a part of a secret deal, and/or plan to make this raid to get Baghdadi easier to pull off successfully?

If so, seems brilliant!

Trump is a political genius. Of course Trump denial people would be too afraid to admit Trump is a successful leader.

Maybe the King of Jordan asked for the Pelosi/Schiff visit to keep them "busy" (aka.. out of the loop) for a few days.

Originally when he funded them they were called ISIL, then after it went to ish they called them isis to confuse those who were not smart enough to realize the the president of the United States funded terrorists again. They Refer to themselves as Daesch or something but that is too hard for the msm to spell so ISIS is easier. Anyone remember what President questioned what is is? Is the name the press uses to call them an homage to him?

Don't forget when B O declared the Muslim Brotherhood (a Nazi creation) the winners of that election in Egypt.

Perhaps he called it ISIL because of his Muslim/Kenyan/"Christian" upbringing.

I did not know that Trump himself killed Baghdadi?
How has Trump contributed in finding and killing Baghdadi? What should Trump be praised for?


Trump *should* agree with that statement.

There are 2 breaking news peices out and im waiting to find confirmation

Earlier today mixed repirts came out about a raid in Idlib involving multiple US helicopters.

Donald Trump just tweeted:


And sources are reporting Al Baghdadi - the leader of ISIS has been captured.

Imagine if he exposed how the US State Dept setup his operation in Libya to oust Qaddafi and Assad.


I guess that's nice, catching the leader. But does it really matter? I'm sure some other zealot will step in his place and claim some BS about being ordained to lead. And all the prehistoric dirt farmers will follow him with great zeal because their magical beliefs compel them to do so.


Tragic these prehistoric dirt farmers won’t stay under the heal of modern day “supermarket trolley pushers” hey?

There is a reason so many US soldiers die in the ME, arrogance that you are better than everyone when you are only there to guard your financial sources

Gaddafi looked after his people better than you “supermarket trolley pushers” and you went after him for his money, no other reason


It wasn't me mate.
It was Hillary, and she went after the gold that she was told to go after.

I read that we tracked some released ISIS fighters that went back to where he was. Imagine if that was the goal this whole time with regards to Turkey and the Kurds.


This is a very good thing because Baghdadi was a large, if not the, recruiter for ISIS.

It matters to a degree. For all intents and purposes, recruits viewed Baghdadi as immortal, and a prophet like Mohammad. It will shake the core beliefs of some, at least for a while.

Is that the 4th time he was killed?

Just like the Bin Laden episode, we'll never know. Trump is a congenital liar we cant depend on what he says.

Just as the supposed Bin Laden killing this one is just as phony.

Lets hope ISIS doesn't start using deepfakes. Then everyone will be a liar.

Apparently there are additional operations going on now. I tried to put Fox on to see if they were covering it, but it's Chris Wallace's hour and he had some Democrats booked to talk impeachment. He's not gonna want to usurp that for actual news coverage.

It's hilarious watching Democrat pundits and politicians all over TV and social media making complete fools of themselves trying to make a big deal out of the fact that we deconflicted with the Russians before we flew into airspace they were monitoring. That's completely standard and everyone on TV claiming that's somehow odd knows that's standard, but they're willing to look like uninformed jackasses who are clueless about how military operations work just to try to spin something negative out of this.

This makes it even better:


WASHINGTON — The surprising information about the Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s general location — in a village deep inside a part of northwestern Syria controlled by rival Qaeda groups — came following the arrest and interrogation of one of Mr. al-Baghdadi’s wives and a courier this past summer, two American officials said.

Armed with that initial tip, the C.I.A. worked closely with Iraqi and Kurdish intelligence officials in Iraq and Syria to identify Mr. al-Baghdadi’s more precise whereabouts and to put spies in place to monitor his periodic movements, allowing American commandos to stage an assault Saturday in which President Trump said Mr. al-Baghdadi died.

But Mr. Trump’s abrupt decision to withdraw American forces from northern Syria disrupted the meticulous planning and forced Pentagon officials to press ahead with a risky, night raid before their ability to control troops and spies and reconnaissance aircraft disappeared, according to military, intelligence and counterterrorism officials. Mr. al-Baghdadi’s death, they said, occurred largely in spite of Mr. Trump’s actions.



The officials praised the Kurds, who continued to provide information to the C.I.A. on Mr. al-Baghdadi even after Mr. Trump’s decision to withdraw the American troops left the Syrian Kurds to confront a Turkish offensive alone. The Syrian and Iraqi Kurds, one official said, provided more intelligence for the raid than any single country.

Hilarious indeed.


The Russian military on Sunday questioned the official US account of the military raid that killed ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, saying it was not aware of any US military operations in the region.

In a statement, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov said the Russian military “does not have reliable information” on a US Special Operations raid in Syria’s Idlib province, adding: “The increasing number of direct participants and countries that allegedly took part in this ‘operation,’ each one giving completely contradictory details, raises legitimate questions and doubts about its existence and especially the level of its success.”



“Firstly, on Saturday and in recent days no air strikes were made on the Idlib de-escalation zone by US aircraft or the so-called ‘international coalition’ were recorded,” Konashenkov said. “Secondly, we are not aware of any alleged assistance to the passage of American aviation into the airspace of the Idlib de-escalation zone during this operation.”
