Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi raid video released by Pentagon


Now about Baghdadi’s last moments:
I can tell you this, he crawled into a hole with two small children and blew himself
up while his people stayed on the ground. You can deduce what kind of person
it is based on that activity. So that would be just my empirical
observation of what he did. I’m not able to confirm anything about his
last seconds. I just can’t confirm that, one way or another. As you can see, the Defence Intelligence
Agency conducted the analysis and compared DNA from the remains
taken from the compound with an own file sample taken when Baghdadi
was at Camp Bucca prison in Iraq in 2004. We believe that the ages of both children
that he took down there with him were under 12 years old,
but that’s about all I can tell you about that. I can tell you that we believe that Baghdadi
actually may have fired from his hole and in his last moments. The other people that were engaged on the
objective were behaving in a threatening manner, with suicide vests approaching the raid
force and that causes you to make some decisions, particularly when they
don’t respond to Arabic language commands to stop, warning shots and the progression
of escalation that our special operators are so very good at.
