The killing of the most recent ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi (he was not the originator of this movement) occurred overnight (October 26 - 27) in Barisha Village, Syria (near Aleppo). U.S. Special Forces — in a helicopter-raid, and as reported dramatically by President Trump in his rather self-congratulatory 50-minute press conference this morning — carried out this ultra-secret mission that had been in the works for a while. Like the killing of al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden in Pakistan on May 2, 2011 when President Obama had authorized a mission by U.S. Navy Seals, both of these terrorists — with horrific blood on their hands — were hiding out in compounds and, fortunately for the Americans conducting the raids, there was no loss of life on our side.
