Pentagon officials have said that US troops captured two men during the raid on the Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s hideout in Syria’s Idlib province over the weekend.

On Monday, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and US Defense Secretary both said that the captured individuals were now “in a secure facility”.

The death of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi during Saturday’s raid in northwest Syria has been confirmed by US President Donald Trump.

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

Trump said that during the raid, after fleeing into a tunnel while being chased by US military dogs, Baghdadi blew himself up alongside three of his children with a suicide vest.

“He was a sick and depraved man, and now he’s gone,” Trump said. “He died like a dog, he died like a coward.”

Trump added that Baghdadi ‘whimpered and cried’ before dying.

General Mark Milley has stated that Baghdadi’s remains had been disposed of and that the government has no plans to share footage of his death.

“Baghdadi’s remains were transported to a secure facility to confirm his identity with forensic DNA testing, and the disposal of his remains has been done and is complete and was handled appropriately,” General Milley – the highest ranking member of the US military – told journalists.

As for the two men taken into US custody, no further details have been released.

The Pentagon has said that although no US military personnel were killed during the raid, one of the dogs chasing Baghdadi was seriously injured.

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi rose to prominence in 2014 after he declared that a new Islamic “caliphate” in Iraq and Syria had been established.

Despite Trump having declared the Islamic State’s “caliphate” over earlier in the year, IS fighters remain active in small pockets throughout Syria.

The death of the ISIS leader is being hailed by many as a policy victory for Trump, who continues to face heavy criticism from globalists on the right and left for deciding to pull US troops out of northern Syria.

  1. ISIS fighters are fanatical killers, driven by a religion that requires murder or bloodshed. They believe in the type caliphate which drove ISIS to the size it was. They live for martyrdom, or they won’t volunteer to ISIS.
    Yes, Baghdadi is dead, he did as he believed, meaning to die by his own hand and not those of his enemies, could have been a consolation sufficient to him. When he touched off the explosive charge strapped to his chest (I believe) , he took no pains to spare his children. They too were martyred, which appears to be an honor among those who live for martyrdom. Among those ISIS people who survived the Special Ops raid, any who escaped and are at liberty are resources sufficient to name another leader to follow. In short, they are insane over the idea of martyrdom.

  2. A LOT OF PEOPLE THINK THEY ARE SMARTER THAN TRUMP AND HE SHOULD DO EXACTLY WHAT THEY SAY HE SHOULD DO, BOY, DO I HAVE NEWS FOR THEM AND YOU, TRUMP IS HIS OWN MAN, HE IS NOT OBLIGATED TO ANYONE, EXCEPT HIS FAMILY AND HE WILL DO WHAT HE THINKS BEST, (NOT WHAT YOU THINK), FOR THIS COUNTRY AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. EVERYONE HAS AN OPION JUST AS THEY HAVE AND EXIT OFFICE, SO SHUT YOU MOUTH AND LET THE LEADER LEAD.

  3. VOTE RED …If it weren’t for President Obama we might not have done the intelligence community assessment that we did that set up a whole sequence of events which are still unfolding today including Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation. President Obama is responsible for that. It was he who tasked us to do that intelligence community assessment in the first place. CLAPPER’S OWN CONFESSION
    AMERICANS WE HAVE TO TAKE BACK OUR AMERICA FROM THE EVIL CRIMINAL ACTS OF DEMOCRATS………………………..TO SOLVE AMERICAS PROBLEMS MAKE THIS CHOICE WE THE PEOPLE’ HAVE THE POWER OF OUR VOICES AND OUR VOTES, TO VOTE OUT THE ENTIRE LYING,CORRUPT, TREASONOUS DEMOCRAT PARTY COME NOV 2020, VOTE TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN AND TO END ALL CORRUPTIONS IN WASHINGTON GOVERNMENT

  4. Trump knew when he made the statement to pull our troops from the area that had he told anyone of the opposition party beforehand, the news media would have gotten the word and there would have been no successful story as we now have seen. It should be obvious to the entire world by now that we have people within our own nation that hate Trump more than they love our people. They would sell our nation to the Devil himself before they would honor Trump for anything. I’ve never seen our nation display so much hatred in my entire 88 years on the planet. No one deserves what Trump has gone through in the short time he has served as our legally elected president, and it is all politically motivated. Totally absurd! Chuck

  5. You are mislead in believing islam or muslim is a religion. It is a cult who’s members believe the goat h***ing pedophile was a divine being. All he was, was a demented madman. Calling the muslim movement a religion would be tantamount to calling the Nazis a religion. Obama releasing Bagdadi from Git Mo was a real great idea. Thanks again you communist muslim motherf****r. He is what you get when you vote for the color of the candidate’s skin instead of the content of his character. Martin Luther King would have been ashamed of him.

  6. Radical Islam makes the Nazis look half-way decent. Even they had enough sense
    not to attack or try to outlaw religious beliefs. They may have given lip-service to
    Christianity and others, but they were smart enough to avoid what the Islamic radicals
    have done. By their very stated beliefs and actions, they deserve no quarter – NONE!

  7. Damn Straight Islam is the Cult of Satan… Since their beginning Muslims greatest contribution to Human Civilization is violence, blood-shed, destruction, & death…!!!! Mohammed was the False Prophet described in the Bible book of Revelations by St. John…!!!!

  8. What exactly is happening in America today is an attempt to remove our president via a communist takeover
    of our government. Go Trump, 2020

  9. Perfectly stated, Missourisam. Glad to see there are real Americans still standing strong in OUR United States Of American. We will refuse to give up what our fallen heroes fought for and that includes Every article of the Constitution. PERIOD!!!!!! And your also 💯% correct on the issue of certain people voting for candidates strictly by the color of ones skin, no character needed in those cases.

  10. TRUMP 2020, TRUMP 2020, TRUMP 2020, as far as most Americans I talk to, it should be TRUMP all the way to 2050 to correct the ignorance of all the previous DumbAsCrap so called leaders.

  11. SAY WHAT YOU WILL OUT THERE IN NEVER NEVER LAND, BUT WE HAVE A FEARLESS LIVING GOD WHO CREATED EVERY ONE OF US….HE GAVE US A BOOK TO LIVE BY….THE BIBLE. HE GAVE US A FREE WILL TO TAKE THE PATH THAT WE CHOOSE. HE HAS SENT MIRACLE’S FOR US TO SEE…MANY PEOPLE HAVE SHARED MANY OF THESE MIRACLES WITH YOU TO HELP YOU TO BELIEVE. I KNOW, BECAUSE I HAVE SHARED SOME OF MY MIRACLES MYSELF. I’M SURE THAT EVERYONE ALIVE HAVE HAD THEIR MIRACLE’S THEMSELVES, THINGS THAT HAVE HAPPENED IN YOUR FAVOR THAT YOU COULD NOT HAVE DONE YOURSELF, OR THINGS THAT HAVE TAKEN PLACE IN YOUR FAVOR THAT YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW OR WHY. CHANCES ARE, YOU CHALKED IT ALL UP TO LUCK . LET ME TELL YOU, THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS LUCK. NO POWER IN HELL OR ON EARTH CAN CHANGE AMYTHING TO GOOD FOR YOU EXCEPT OUR HEAVENLY CREATOR, LORD GOD YAHUSHUA. WHEN YOU HAVE BAD SITUATIONS, POINT YOUR FINGER AT THE DEVIL HIMSELF, BECAUSE HE KNOWS NO GOODNESS….
    HE KNOWS ONLY EVIL, AND THAT’S ALL HES ABLE TO GIVE TO ANYONE. HE WILL LIE TO YOU AND PROMISE YOU THE WORLD, BUT ALL HE WANTS IS TO BE MASTER OF YOUR SOUL, AND HE’S WILLING TO DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO GET IT. WHEN HE DOES GET YOUR SOUL, YOU WILL DO HIS BIDDING…WHATEVER ATROCIOUS THING HE WANTS OF YOU, OR YOU ARE TRAGICALLY KILLED . IN THE END, SATAN AND ALL OF THOSE WHO HAVE BID THEIR SOULS TO HIM, AND BRANDED WITH HIS MARK OF 666 WILL HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO GO TO THE BOWELS OF THE INFERNOS OF HELL WITH HIM WHERE TERROR AND HORROR SURROUNDS THEM AND ENGULFS THEM FOR ETERNITY. ONLY JESUS CAN SAVE YOU, ME, US, NOW. THIS IS WHY HE MADE HIS JOURNEY TO EARTH…TO PAY THE DEBT OF OUR SINS BY BEING FLANKED.AND BEATEN TO DEATH, AND TIED AND NAILED AND CHAINED ON THE CROSS ON THE HILL OF CALVARY . YES, HE COULD HAVE CALLED A MILLENIUM OF ANGELS TO TAKE HIM DOWN FROM THAT CROSS, BUT IF HE HAD, WE WOULD NOT HAVE HAD A CHANCE TO LIVE IN HEAVEN FOR ETERNITY…..WE WOULD ALL HAVE HAD TO LIVE ETERNAL LIFE IN THE BURNING FIRES OF HELL. JESUS GIVING HIS LIFE’S BLOOD IS WHAT SAVED US….HE DID IT FOR ALL OF US….HEAVEN IS OURS IF AND WHEN WE ACCEPT THE FACT THAT JESUS IS GOD’S SON, AND ASK GOD TO FORGIVE OUR SINS, AND KNOW THAT JESUS DID DIE ON THE CROSS TO SPARE US FROM ETERNAL HELL..

  12. I like your mindset. Mohammad was a sick murdering bastard who who enjoyed young boys as well as goats and pigs. A sick individual who used his self proclaimed “religion” to commit war, rape, kill and pillage any who disagreed with his demented, psychotic, decrees.

  13. Hopefully, the American people will rise up and do the right thing and put Trump back in the WH in 2020…and

    For Gods sake, vote those ignorant foreigners out of office, more specifically, the “so-called” ‘squad. They represent everything non-America, hate and divisiveness- Good Riddance!

  14. Hitler poisoned his dog and shot Eva Braun before he committed suicide. Al-bagwaddy killed his kids along with himself, see the correlation?

  15. President Trump should get the same accolades as the former Muslim President of the United States of America received.. It’s to bad the press won’t acknowledge Trumps achievements. I see and read how unfair the media really is toward President Trump. That’s why in 2020 President Trump will get my vote.

  16. Hitler didn’t died nor did Eva Braun. They went by submarine, with others, to Argentina. Some in other countries have leaders from his lineage of evil and other leaders evils, who had offspring that are in political office.

  17. I couldn’t get past your first sentence – nor would I. Isis is NOT “driven by a religion that requires murder or bloodshed”…….there’s NOTHING in the Muslim religion that states anything like it even. Your ignorance of others is blinding – yet, you have the nerve to speak with such authority. You, and those like you, think in manners which has and is destroying the very fiber of the soul to our nation. Shame on you! “The hateful will hate – and, the fearful will fear……even and especially when there’s nothing to hate nor fear.” It seems that your prejudice reaches far and wide – fear. Your design to ‘classify others’ as one lump sum is pure hatred….which, in itself, is fear.

  18. Are you referring to the ‘leader’ who just slaughtered our allies? Trumps no leader!!! He’s a fraudulent carni man…….a fool among men. Grow up and open your eyes man!!

  19. True, lots of voters voted for obama because, they just felt like it was time to have a Black POTUS, not because of his qualifications. obama gave islam a foot hold in our government, by importing thousand of muslims into the US, and now we have, Tlaib, omar, and that idiot ocraZio, in govrnment.

  20. I have been calling these Muslims a Cult for the past 5 years, they are not a religion and should not be tolerated as such. Even there Quaran is full of hate to kill the infidels…etc We should demand the closing of their masques and not allow anymore into our country. China , at least, has that part of it right. Look at all the atrocities they have caused in the name of their “religion” over the years, pirating, beheadings, blowing up the marine barracks, countless suicide bombings and many other atrocities culminating with 9/11 . Is this a religion or a terror organization posing as a religion ???? I could go on and on but hopefully you all get the idea !!

  21. Chuck: You are absolutely on target! He has taken those who were not doing their jobs and replaced them with those who want to do the right thing. It is sad to see so many people who have no respect for OUR PRESIDENT. He has done what no other President has done! He does not go with the flow. He acts on the basis of what is right to protect America, because previous presidents have only opened the door for an influx of terrorist to settle as sleeper cells all throughout America. One thing I have to say to all those out there, who are ready to defend you families, friends and neighbors. Be on guard! the time is coming. We are Vets, our Oat of enlistment never ends, we are always on watch. We protect those who cannot and we will defend until our last breath. This goes to all of our fallen comrades in arms vets, police officers, fire fighters, and anyone in the game of “Protect & Serve”. Any one who reads this and has done or been a part of hurting innocent bystanders, by taking up a firearm and using it to kill someone, remember this we: Brothers in arms are here, we will meet one day and you will suffer for your dastardly deeds, we will be here to stop you!
    Les…

  22. This is the One Eternal truth! Well stated Marion. People do not realize we are engaged in a great spiritual war. We cannot win it with conventional weapons. You can’t kill spirits with bullets. The only way we can defeat our enemy, Satan, is through the intercessory prayers of righteous people.

  23. VOTE TRUMP2020,,, OR YOUR FREEDOMS WILL BE CONTROLLED AT THE LIKES OF THOSE SLANDERING HYPOCRITES

  24. PRAISE GOD DAILY , AND SEE HIM WORK IN YOUR LIVES , DONT PRAISE JUST CONTINUE BE SURROUDED BY THE EVIL THATS TRYING TO DESTROY OUR GOOD PRESIDENT

  25. I agree! He ruined this country. He was nothing more than a big mouth coy motherf****r that had the gift of gab. I’m so glad he’s gone. We lost so much when he was in power. I can’t even stand to say his name. I know I was ashamed to have him as my President! The way he treated our Veteran’s and Active Duty was horrendous.

  26. Did he refer to the Muslim religion or ISIS you stupid mouth feed ignorant POS!!! I can tell you’re nothing more than a follower of the do nothing Demorats, believing in their BS and nonsense rhetoric. People like you need to go away!!!

  27. Don’t be a bit surprised if we learn ISIS is being funded by the Democratic Party. I put nothing past these Demonic evil Demons. They disrespect our flag, the Constatution, Bill of Rights. Look how they speak about the American people at time, including their supporters. John Kerry has had meetings with Iranian leadership. Does that sound like Democrats wouldn’t launder money to ISIS?

  28. Alex K, what are you smoking, it says that infidels like you and me, are to be taxed or killed.

  29. AMEN..Howard and Marion…GOD IS IN CONTROL and everything that happens is according to HIS plan..we are not always aware of what His plan is, but He gave us HIS word to live by…it is and always has been a spiritual war…praying for more people to KNOW and understand the truth as it has been given to all of us..PRAY PRAY PRAY…HE hears our cries and knows the needs of HIS people..

  30. OH THE POOR LITTLE LIBTARD OR DUMMYCRAT IN A GROUP OF TRUMP SUPPORTERS LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT!! CHOOSE TO LEAVE IT? ILL GIVE YOU THE POLE TO VAULT OVER THE WALL AND AFTER YOU ARE DONE YOU CAN STICK IT UP YOUR ASS!!!!!

  31. GOOD!!! Let’s kill some m ore of these high ranking Murdering Muslims!!! Let’s just keep doing this until we run out of Murdering Muslims to kill!!! Thanks to the brave U. S. soldiers who carried out this raid! I am glad they were not injured or killed. it is a shame about the dog. I hope the animal recovers.

  32. When the idiot was blown up his pieces should have been gathered together and the Military people who chased after the idiot should gather together and drink a few beers and flush his pieces down the toilet Or maybe that Ilhan Omar idiot will marry his pieces because anyone who marries their own brother will marry anything

  33. The latest research by educated Muslims is that there may never have been a man called Muhammad and that Islam was created at least 60 years after his supposed death. At least 60% of their holy book is plagerised from the Bible and Torah. There is no supporting documentation for him as there is for one Jesus Christ.
