US Took Two Prisoners During Raid of ISIS Leaderís Compound
epoch times ^ | 10/28/2019 | ZACHARY STIEBER

The United States took two prisoners during the raid on the compound of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, officials said on Oct. 28.

The Oct. 26 raid left al-Baghdadi and several top ISIS members dead, as well as several children who were killed when al-Baghdadi detonated a blast in a dead-end tunnel, President Donald Trump said over the weekend.

In an update during a briefing at the Pentagon on Oct. 28, military leaders said two men were taken prisoner.

“There were two adult males taken off the objective, alive,” Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said during the briefing in Washington. “They’re in our custody and they’re in a secure facility.”

He declined to say what the men’s relationship with the ISIS leader was. The raid took place in Syria’s Idlib province, just miles from the border with Turkey.

Milley said al-Baghdadi was hiding in a tunnel and detonated a suicide vest as U.S. forces closed in. Visual evidence and DNA testing confirmed his identity.

“The disposal of his remains has been done, is complete, and was handled appropriately,” he said.

Trump said on Oct. 27 that al-Baghdadi was “whimpering and crying” just before he detonated the blast. Milley said he didn’t know who Trump had gotten that information from, but said the president had spoken “directly to the unit members.”

The president saw the movie Angels With Dirty Faces. Rocky died yellow. That was the whole point.

As I recall, Rocky died pretending to be yellow so the kids wouldn’t idolize him and follow in his footsteps.

The priest talked him into it, Cagney was great in that (and in everything of his I've seen). It wouldn't be made today.

Why are "officials" even discussing such information with the goddamn traitor press???

Mr President, please tell your subordinates in the military (and elsewhere) to zip their damn lips.

Grrrr......

If they are the ones who provided information leading to the end of that loser, they are cashing in their bounty and trying out their new identies

If they are dead-enders, start by delousing them, then bathing them on the tetter-totter

Feed the body to hogs. Feed the hogs to dogs. Send the dog poop to the next of kin.

My wild ass guess, psyops to sow dissention and chaos among the remaining dead-enders. Let’s hope they panic and make mistakes
