More details and video of the raid against ISIS leader al-Baghdadi has been released by the Pentagon.
In addition to releasing the video, the Pentagon also corrected that only two of al-Baghdadi’s children were killed during the activation of his suicide vest, not the three that had been reported earlier.
U.S. Central Command General Frank McKenzie said the raid was extremely difficult, but it went off without a hitch.
General McKenzie also updated the status of the canine operator as having been treated and back to active duty.
The wounds of the canine Delta Force operator were not from the bomb, as most believed, but from exposed electrical wires in the cave.
While General McKenzie would not confirm al-Baghdadi was crying and whimpering when the Delta operators were chasing him, he did say that al-Baghdadi “crawled into a hole with two small children and blew himself up while his people stayed on the ground.
So you can deduce what type of person that is based on that activity.”
While not all of the video was released, the parts that were show the immense firepower the United States used to grease the way for our Delta Force operators.
As you are about to see, the entire compound, as well as numerous al-Baghdadi forces, were obliterated during the air assault…
In addition to killing the ISIS leader, General McKenzie stated that significant intelligence was recovered from the operation.
This intelligence may have already paid off dividends, as the heir apparent to al-Baghdadi was taken out not long after al-Baghdadi was killed.
While military experts agree that ISIS will try to attack the United States in response to this assault, they also agree the ISIS terrorist organization right now is a snake without a head.
