Rumors of al-Baghdadi’s death began circulating online Saturday evening after Trump announced on Twitter that, “Something very big has just happened!” Numerous news outlets, including Newsweek, Fox News, and Defense One, all independently reported that al-Baghdadi was, indeed, killed.

On Sunday morning, Trump confirmed the rumors.

“Last night the United States brought the world’s number one terrorist leader to justice,” Trump announced. “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is dead.”

“He died like a dog, he died like a coward. The world is now a much safer place,” Trump said.

Trump explained that U.S. special forces were present at al-Baghdadi’s compound for about two hours, killing numerous terrorists during the raid.

Trump said U.S. forced chased al-Baghdadi through a tunnel under the compound, where al-Baghdadi detonated a suicide vest under the shield of three children. Biometric tests later confirmed al-Baghdadi’s identity.

Before leaving the compound, U.S. forces collected a cache of intelligence documents, Trump said. Several ISIS fighters were also captured, Trump said, although he did not provide additional details about prisoners.

“More dead than alive,” Trump told reporters.

No U.S. special forces were hurt or killed in the raid. The Washington Examiner reported that Delta Force operators carried out the operation.

Al-Baghdadi was staying at a compound in Syria’s Idlib Province, which has long been known as a save haven for terrorists, especially groups aligned with Al Qaeda.

The CIA assisted in locating al-Baghdadi, CNN reported. American forces were also assisted by Kurdish-lead Syrian Democratic Forces and the Iraqi military.

Al-Baghdadi has been one of the world’s most-wanted criminals since his rise to power in the Middle East in the early 2010s. However, he has been in hiding since the fall of ISIS in 2017.

  1. Well done! To all of our military’s and to President Trump. Now all we have to do is to collected all ISIS weapons and terriorist and be charge with their crimes against humanity and property lost.

  2. One more Muslim leader dead by his own hands.
    One day the world will be led by a Muslim Dictator. Two of the Iranian leaders in government stated that they were working to get the world in such a mess that the 12th Imam would come and set up his 7 year reign. Even Satan knows the Bible. The dictator during the 7 years of tribulation described in the last book of the New Testament May be a muslim. The book says that he was killed shortly after taking power and Satan restored his life. An Image of him was made that spoke all his words to the world he ruled. He is never mentioned as appearing in public after the appearance to confirm he was alive.
    This is my personal belief. Satan wants to rule the world and his method is to destroy all Jews and Christians. Islam wants to rule the world and their method is to destroy all Jews and Christians. To me that says Allah is really Satan who is ruling the Islamic Nations.

    1. Al-ilah was the pagan crescent moon god of Saudi Arabia thousands of years ago. His symbol was the crescent moon and his wife was the star. At the top of the minarets on the mosques are the crescent moon and the star. God doesn’t want people killing each other. Their prophet Mohammad wasn’t a prophet in the normal sense. Biblical prophets were told what to write in the Holy Bible and they were warned not to add their own ideas. Most prophets served for a few years. No prophet ever had everything they said written as gospel until Mohammad. These deviations in the rules prove that Mohammad was doing what he wasn’t supposed to do in his claim to being the perfect man. Only Jesus Christ lived without sin. Mohammad claimed he met the angel Gabriel in a deep dark cave. Contrast that with Moses and the burning bush on the top of a mountain. Fallen Angel’s hide in dark places, claim to be what they aren’t and tell lies. For true spirituality read the lost gospels found hidden by monks after they were told to destroy the gospels of Mary and Judas, etc. by the Catholic church after the church decided to omit certain books from the Holy Bible at their conference. No prophet has ever had their every word claimed as God’s. Jesus Christ wasn’t a prophet, he is the son. Mohammad proved that his word was not good by making a ten year peace treaty with others, then after two years he conquered those he agreed to peace with. Mohammad’s word was no good.

  3. I just read some updates about the whole Trump impeachment thing. It looks like its still Nancy Pelosi doing most of the effort on it all. Wasn’t it just a few weeks ago she didn’t want to pursue impeaching the president? If I was in Congress, I’d be really wondering about that.

    1. Nancy Pelosi is a hypocrite and a liar. Her father was mayor of Baltimore and he was in league with the mob whe he ruined the city. Nancy Pelosi’s “walls are immoral” comment proves she’s a hypocrite. Pelosi lives in a house with walls and her home in the city is inside a gated community. Her vineyard in Napa has a wall built around it. Don’t trust hypocrites and liars.

      1. Your just figuring that out? Pelosi was in cahoots with HRC the whole time and even her other Female cohorts in California had a cow over HRC losing the election, shouting “Impeach the M—-F—-” even before he was sworn in. Tell me that is fair. Then Clinton tells Biden NOT to concede to Trump at all because she knows what is about to happen, Gee, I wonder how that happend.

  4. Pelosi, Clinton, Biden, and many other high-ranking Democrats and even some Republicans are corrupt. Obama is still running things from behind the screen and he is a Muslim.
    President Trump has gotten the US Military to go after and kill these terrorist Muslims that are running ISIS and other radical bands and we need Trump to remain and remove all of these terrorists from the face of the earth. Please God let Congress see what is best for the USA and the world and re-elect President Trump when the vote is placed before Congress because of massive election fraud.
