A US official told CNN that about a dozen armored US vehicles moved south from Qamishli toward Deir Ezzor, an area near the oil fields in Syria that President Donald Trump said he is trying to protect.

LOL!

Donald, not necessary to tune into your lame self-congratulatory announcement tomorrow morning. The story is already in the NY Times. Too bad you cancelled your subscription.

Seems a senior terrorist leader was killed in Syria from that group you have several times claimed were completely defeated.

Four dots! 33.3% more!!! A lot of people don't know that! Also, a lot of people are saying that four is more than three.

Stand by for self-congratulatory figurative back-slapping.

If I were on Twitter, I would have thanked that one!

If he carries on at that pace, he will delete his Twitter account in about 10 days. Now THAT will be a day to celebrate! Worth a new, yearly American holiday maybe?

I expected the triumphalism, I didn't expect him to re-stage the Obama photo from the Bin Laden raid, now I wonder if the whole thing was ordered for the optics.

You wonder?


When was the last time something like this wasn't done for the optics?


Even UBL was killed for the optics. He was holed up in a large house in Pakistan with no cell-phone service.


Obama was the king of optics.



Trump is just the king of negative rep with the press and intellectuals ;-)


But as the world is full of dumb idiots who are still allowed to vote, guess which strategy is more successful in the long run?

What do you mean by long run? When a fifth of the world's population is underwater, or before that?

Weird business!

From the Russians;
Quote:
The Russian military on Sunday questioned the official US account of the military raid that killed ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, saying it was not aware of any US military operations in the region.

In a statement, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov said the Russian military “does not have reliable information” on a US Special Operations raid in Syria’s Idlib province, adding: “The increasing number of direct participants and countries that allegedly took part in this ‘operation,’ each one giving completely contradictory details, raises legitimate questions and doubts about its existence and especially the level of its success.”
At least Obama got no blow back

Funny how in the Obama pic they re all focused on something off camera (the actual raid) and in the current version they are all focused on the camera, almost like it's fake.

Well, the photo's metadata does reveal that it was taken 90 mins after the raid. Presumably they couldn't risk informing the Twitterer in Chief at the time in case he blabbed, then just showed him the Sky+ recording of it.

You'd think they'd have learned by now how to revoke his certificate for WiFi on his wifi-only phone during such times.
(Assuming they use EAP-TLS)



Have they fired all BOFHs?

The footage piped into the situation room would have consisted of overhead surveillance shots of the dark compound with heat signatures differentiating between US fighters and others, intelligence and military officials told the New York Times.

Those cameras would not have been able to peer into the tunnel where Baghdadi died, nor provide audio proof of his conduct during the last minutes of his life.
So Trumps dramatic account of Baghdadi's last moments was an invention!

Stop doubting the great man.

We all know that he got Baghdadi on Facetime, and just as he was about to pull the cord on his suicide vest, Donald shouted "You're Fired".

Apparently, the thing about the metadata was corrected and the timeline seems to be correct.

There was certainly no audio or video in the tunnels though.
