US officials uncovered actionable intelligence about al-Baghdadi's location, but future action is less likely with a weakened American presence in the area. "Most likely would have taken the top spot-Now he is also Dead!" the president announced in a tweet on Tuesday morning. The identity of the terrorist was, however, not revealed by Trump.
Earlier today, President Donald Trump released the first image of the military working dog that was injured during Saturday's dramatic raid that culminated in the death of ISIS leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
At a press conference on Monday at the Pentagon, Gen Mark A Milley, the highest ranking member of the U.S. military, told reporters the dog's name was not being released to protect its identity as it was "still in theatre".
Partizan Belgrade vs Manchester United, Europa League
Sunday's 1-1 draw with in-form rivals Liverpool offered a chink of light after a miserable few months at Old Trafford. Mourinho said Klopp had clearly not enjoyed the way Manchester United made the game hard for Liverpool.
Television host Jimmy Kimmel enthralled his viewers with a video mashup of former US President Barack Obama's "Bin Laden speech" with current President Donald Trumps "al-Baghdadi's speech". No U.S. troops were killed in the operation, Trump said. "Baghdadi led one of the most brutal terror organizations in the world, which celebrated public executions, rape, torture and murder". Trump was likely referring to Islamic State spokesman Abu Hassan al-Muhajir, named as a potential replacement for the notorious terrorist leader.
Asked specifically about the "whimpering" line Monday, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley said he did not know where the President got those details but noted Trump had planned to talk to some of the commandos who carried out the operation and assumed the information came from those conversations.
That's remaining a secret because, living up to its hero reputation, the dog is back at work and in the field, serving the United States military, which means its identity has to be protected.
Washington Post mocked for calling ISIS arch-terrorist ‘austere religious scholar’
Vice President Dick Cheney, tweeted that The Washington Post was "trying desperately to hold on to #ISIS on-line subscribers". The headline was quickly changed , but critics say it sugar coated the terror inflicted by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
Before al-Baghdadi could move, a Kurdish undercover operative was able to reach him and retrieve the self-styled "Caliph's" underwear, Can said.
The complex USA mission was ably assisted by the Russians, Kurds, Turks and even Bashar al Assad's Syrian troops. He did not identify al-Baghdadi's alleged successor. "He was an inspirational leader in addition to being a thug and a murderer", Esper said, adding that taking out such a leader would have a major impact on the organisation.
Later that month, the USA added al-Mawla to its Rewards for Justice list, offering up to USD$5 million (AUD$7.3 million) for information leading to his capture and saying that "as one of ISIS's most senior ideologues. he is a potential successor to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi".
