On October 30th, Marine Corps Gen. Kenneth F. McKenzie briefed reporters on the raid that killed ISIS leader Abu Bark al-Baghdadi and provided videos showing how it went on.

“As it became clear that we had gained clear and actionable intelligence on his hideout, we developed a plan designed to capture or kill him and started preparing a special operations team for the mission,” he said.

The special operations team was staged in Syria and launched against an isolated compound in Idlib province about 4 miles from the Turkish border.

“We assess that he was hiding in Idlib province to avoid the intense pressure that had been put on ISIS in other areas of Syria,” the general said.

“After Baghdadi’s murder/suicide, the assault force cleared debris from the tunnel and secured Baghdadi’s remains for DNA verification,” McKenzie said, adding that the remains were positively identified. The body was appropriately buried at sea, in accordance with the law of armed conflict, he said.

Aircraft destroyed the compound so it can’t be used as a shrine to the murderer, the general told reporters.

“It looks like a parking lot with big potholes,” McKenzie said.

The military briefing and the video released were apparently intended to dispel multiple doubts that the Pentagon’s version of the supposed death of Baghdadi. However, the video provided cannot confirm that Baghdadi was at least present on the site. Therefore, the US will have to do something more to prove its version of events.

Meanwhile, more and more wild rumors are appearing over the Baghdadi case. Various parties and supposed US allies rush to claim a bit of PR success from the supposed elimitation of the top terrorist.

An ISIS defector, who provided information to the US was instrumental to the raid that killed ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the Washington Post reported.

The man was allegedly a logistics aide and trusted official of al-Baghdadi and provided information including that the ISIS leader was always armed with a suicide belt so he could kill himself if anyone attempted to capture him.

The ISIS informant would also receive most, if not all, of the $25 million bounty that al-Baghdadi had on his head. The ISIS turncoat was so close to al-Baghdadi, in fact, that he was present during the raid that resulted in al-Baghdadi’s death.

According to the Washington Post, the US then extracted the informant and his family from the region two days later.

One official said the mole was a Sunni Arab who turned against ISIS after the group killed a relative, the outlet reported.

The Syrian Democratic Forces leader, Gen. Mazloum Abdi, said Monday to NBC News that his organization had an informant that helped the raid happen. Allegedly, the informant stole al-Baghdadi’s underwear and gave specific information about finding him.

But the US Department of Defense and the White House refuse to acknowledge that anything of the sort happened.

“I’m not going to comment on what may or may not have happened with the SDF on the objective,” Army Gen. Mark A. Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said on October 28th. “The actions on the objective, the aircraft coming in, the aircraft overhead and the soldiers conducting the assault, was a U.S.-only operation.”

Even Marine Corps Gen. McKenzie’s briefing did not mention of an ISIS turncoat or a Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) operative.

“Dead men tell no tales.”


Nah Bro’……………he’s soakin’ up the rays on Haifa beach with his buddies Epstein and Maxwell. Later they’ll head off to score a few underage goyim girlies.


just wait… next trending movie trailer on youtube for a film “directed by JEW JEW ABRAMS, a true story about the courageous delta force raid against 1 fat jihadi and a small entourage of goat fuckers”. now what the movie wont show is how the US harbored this terrorist in Iraq under their protection for YEARS, then funneled billions$ in weapons to his Al-Nusra allies in Syria, allowed his army to capture territory from the SAA, and murder thousands of innocent civilians… all thanks to good ole’ USA. oh and I’m sure “ABRAMS” definitely wont be including how isis shared the golan border with “America’s Greatest Ally” Israel for YEARS without being attacked. More box office is good for HollyJewood, truth doesn’t matter. let the goyim sleep :)

What sort of nonsense video is that?

1) Who were they guys outside the compound walls? If they were ISIS what were they doing outside the compound or if they were American special forces who dropped ordanance on them?

2) How is this garbage video shot in the dark through a murky fish-tank using a $2 dollar camera bought off a night market stall in Hong Kong proof of anything?

3) If this is the sort of visual equipment quality available to the alleged “high end” US forces what sort of dogshite are they ordinary grunts expected to use?

4) Why did the so called journalist present for this “guff” not walk out in protest as a waste of their time and a blatant attempt for a cheap news cycle?

5) The clamour to be a so called partner or to have had significant input into this alleged incident is another bizarre event, aside from the U.S Turkey, Kurds, Syria, and Russia we are also being told that modern day Benedict Arnold masquerading as a “knicker thief” was heavily involved in securing soiled underpants!

Yes folks literally the story is just as “shitty” as the video

Robert Ferrin

What you really mean is that this “story is simply a shitty story” much as the Bin Laden story,simply trying to boast and shine the one in the oval office, as he runs for re-election as Obama did,in this neck of the woods we simply call it bull shit.!!!!

Luke Hemmming

Yup! you can polish and shine a turd but it’s still a turd.


Why did nobody saw the income and out going aircraft, there must have bin at least 4 “planes” flying 500 km over their country to deliver so much people and surely take 12 more back. Russia, Turkey ( not trusted nor involved) and SAA should be very concerned. Also because down south on the Syrian-Iraqy border time over time the construction of Iran military compound is destroyed ( 4 times) without that the planes are seen. Do the US really have stealth helicopters?


They were spotted while traveling and during the operation. Pro-SAA sources confirmed this on twitter while the events were unraveling in Idlib.

So the most wanted terrorist prefers to hide in an isolated, newly built compound? lol Now I really want to read about that DNA test.


The Pentagon has thousands of these videos of destroyed buildings and killed people on the ground. The only thing that this one proves is that they blew up a building and killed some people approaching it. They could have been people attending a wedding or a mosque for all that we know. It wouldn’t be the first time that US operational intelligence did this.

If a real raid actually took place. They have hours of close up high quality video of it that actually would prove something. That they’re deliberately withholding. If it even exists.


……………………”If it even exists.”………………..It doesn’t Richard. More mega bullshit from the MSMBullshit machine……………….Lies, lies and more lies.

Baghdadi is dead. If the Pentagon faked it then they risk Baghdadi releasing a video. The Russians would be best served to use this opportunity to remind the U.S. and the world that this highlights the need to let the Syrian Arab Republic re-take control of Idlib and see if the U.S. dares to defend Idlb anymore.


Baghdadi release a video? Without US/Israeli permission? Doubtful. If the US faked it, that would mean Baghdadi is part of the scam…or dead, which he likely is. When the US produces a piece of Baghdadi…and I mean a piece of meat he can’t do without, that can be tested by someone other than the US (in 15 minutes, no less), it would be folly to believe anything the US puts out. Does the world really believe ObL was killed by the US? How many times did both of these guys die, escape capture? Only to be killed by the US, with no real proof of death or identity. The same with Epstein and that circus. Take a look at the guy who oversaw the autopsy, Baden. He ascribed to the ‘magic bullet’ theory when he was on the JFK assassination committee. It’s only a coincidence that the CIA/Mossad are suspected in both scenarios…Epstein, Baghdadi (whatever his real name is). When it comes to statements from the US, it’s best to err on the side of skepticism, until actual proof emerges…which it has not.


Oh yeah.. Baghdadi the cat. Have 9 lives and can be reborn.

“We did kill him. We did, we did!” Well, nobody believed you then, and nobody believes you now. “Me thinks thou dost protest too much”. Too many details in your story, no evidence still, except your “word”. Probably paid 25 mil in taxpayer money to a bunch of liars to back up your story.


This is a bombing action, who knows where and when, who care. The important point is to convince north american people to get votes for Trump. Every body else can not believe to these WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION.


Nice stories. Anyway, I am not young & naive enough to believe anything anymore from the US front reports… The PR dominate happenings like these. And the PR commands: US must be the hero have brillantly taken out the most cruel murderer in the now-times in ME. After so expensive investments it cannot be that other forces than US-specialists are the ones who bring him down! Same story like the plot with Bin Laden, being thrown to the sea very soon afterwards included :) Maybe… he was brought to death at any time before by chance and by a shooting of unknown soldiers of Assad’s Army, maybe by some Russian Military Police or secret raid, maybe he died from any sickness – but the script claims a dramatic showdown aligned with American heroism. Maybe they bought the story, no matter what the price? Maybe someone knew where this criminal was buried and sold his intel to agents of the heroic Yankees to fabricate this plot? However, if it helps to bring the Yanks out of the area, with hubristic attitude to gain a brillant standing in the world’s mind, then it is ok. It can be very wearisome to take toys away from a playful grown-up kid like USA…

Let’s see what happens to the team that supposedly got him. Will they end like the navy seal 6 team? Go on a helicopter ride and never return?

Luke Hemmming

Oh and i must say this “cool story bro”.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
