  • More media bs , they never captured him and he is alive . I seen him horsing around with his buddies at a taxi stand on my way home from work today …don’t believe the hype ! Haha

  • In a few minutes did you do the DNA test?
    Either way, another agent like Bin Laden, trained by the CIA and removed without showing evidence.
    A very opportune moment to break another toy before the elections, Mr. Trump.

  • Alejandro Martinez says:

    I though for sure Hussein obama was gonna get pulled out by the anckles from that tunnel too, crying and yelling for Hillary to help him as she rans and gets away through another rat hole leading to the swamp…

  • You have to aplaud the US Military for being able to manipulate public support….this action undoubtedly never actually happened….ISIS is just another arm of the CIA and used to get public support for invasions and actions…….Baghdadi has been killed many times already…just to the US public are too stupid to remember!

  • al-Baghdadi dead?
    Where is Verifiable evidence?
    Another Hollywood sensational story to demonstrate the American military is any better than what we see in Afghanistan?
    Why destroy the evidence and hope people will believe their fabrications?
    People are not that much stupid.
    I do not buy it and I demand verifiable proof this is not just another crap Bin Laden style.

  • Its fake news like Ossama. I bet you. That is the only drama. You guys should know Trump and CIA
    think for it why they didnot showed OSSAMA to you guys. US troops special forces were already failed with most advanced technology to get Mulla Umar. He was stayed there for 6 years near ARMY base in afghanistan. but they didnot even think of it that he was that close. US army now cant go for more wars and waste personnel like in afghanistan millions are wasted their lifes.
    This is because of Turkey

  • NPR Praises Terrorist Baghdadi: 'He Was A Real Leader,' A Movement We've Never Seen Before'…..
    NBC is sitting this one out and letting NPR take over their Fake Narrative….lol

  • 1:35 Abu-Bakr Al-baghdadi is not the founder of ISIS. He was just the leader and successor to the actual founder which was Abu-Musab Al-Zarqarwi. To the public, ISIS did seem to come out of nowhere in 2014 , but they've been around for over a decade.

  • Is trump now finally happy ,Will he win his second presidential dialection?,,

    He now got a big chance and i would be not surprised if this operation was part of his presidential campaign.

  • Joren van der Ark 5 says:

    So are we still going to stab the Kurds, who gave us the Intel that lead to this raid in the back? Or do we finally grow a conscience?

  • Pelosi and Schiff betrays Al Baghdadi by going to Middle East and SECRETLY MEETING WITH HIM … NOW being followed by our Military and found out his hideouts through these two Traitors … BWAHAHAHA !!! Good job nervous PELOSI and Pencil Neck Schiff …

  • ابو المغيره القحطاني says:

    If Sheikh Abu Bakrid Al-Bajdadi cited what he did him by killing by Sheikh Zarqawi, the prisoners of knife by His Highness the name of Sheikh Osheed Bin Laden and if he cited his heart and God and if the life of God willing and the brothers of the Cross, the middle of the crossing was killed and the logo of your slave said that the arms was the middle and the logo of your dissolve will not be as long as I am a man who is derived by me and I am not going to meet the arms and reveal that he does not meet a kid and his father with fire, and do not miss the honor of the big and the words of the big fabric and the words of the faithful in Abu Dakr al-Bugdidi Husseini the scene of the Hashemi on the activist and the hatred and on his abuse of the wisdom of the people, but I am a dispute of the whole family but I see the kidnah of the people of God but God what is telling a martyr

  • Where is the dead body😛😛😛😛,
    When America need to go out from Afghanistan they told to people about Osama death, but didn't show the body of Osama.
    Now they want go out from Syria so they say we killed baghdadi but can't show the body😁😁😁😁😁😁

  • He’s just one of the many that bear responsibility for the killings of people that have died in the sanctification of our holy one.Theres many more to follow.

  • This is like the 6th time he's believed to have been killed. This guy rises more times than he dies .. UK government called it " LIES " based on TRUMP propaganda

  • The man's been dead quit lying to us. Trump just made it up. This is what happens to your trunk when you been lying so much nobody wants to believe you I don't believe you.

  • Trump vs Obama Update

    Trump Publicly Revels In Death And Spectacle: 'Boom Boom Boom!'

    HuffPost Amanda Terkel,HuffPost 5 hours ago +++Read the first part of this Huffy Post nonsense. Obama was somber & dignified in his declaration of Osama bin Laden's death. And then OBAMA Made a Mockery of all the US soldiers and the World Trade victims by allowing bin Laden to be buried at sea-privately. We never got to see his filthy corpse, to have it brought back to USA and in violation of bin Ladens Muslim code- autopsied and examined for whatever diseased mind he had. I'll take Trump over Obama any day!!!!! This New Story released on Yahoo to make Obama look more dignified is absolutely disgusting. What OBAMA DID was like "If" we Americans had killed Hitler first and then Honored Him by burying him without the people seeing it. I've got to say that the Huffy Post and Yahoo have gone lower than Nazis that put Jews in Concentration Camps with this one. I sure plan to be voting Trump/Pence 2020!! Lord God Permitting!!!

    NOW! I find out the terrorist Abu Baghdadi was also buried as sea. BUT the point was Obama made it look like an honoring of the worst terrorist of them all, while at least our good President Trump mocked the death of a terrorist. In fact that was the entire premise of the Leftist Media that Trump was not being respectful enough over this mans death. Sad to say Trump didn't have me to advise him or maybe he would have not given this man a burial at sea. I'm going out on a limb and say Trump was just following suit and agreeing with some Admiral probably that getting rid of the pieces of the corpse was the best move. Not like bin Laden who was killed with most of his body parts still together, and again bin Laden was the first and most recognized terrorist leader, and should never have been allowed this free burial. Obama may have set a precedent but it was wrong for Trump to follow Obama's move. But it was not wrong for President Trump to be happy with in public for this evil mans death.+++ I'm just a one man political activist, no team to advise me.So either way I still stand by Trump. Too bad he doesn't have me to advise him as I think Millions of Americans were disappointed that bin Laden was honored with a burial at sea and they are also not happy about this lesser known ISIS leader. We don't want to honor terrorist leaders with decent burials.

  • President Trump’s abrupt decision to pull forces from northern Syria forced the Pentagon to press ahead with a risky night operation that killed the ISIS leader.

    They knew where al baghdadi was all this time but chose not to get him?
    And he blew himself and thats how his kids died? Not something else?

    Fishy

  • McAllister Pulswaithe says:

    Glad this dirtbag is dead, but Trump did it to boost his ratings running up to the election. The timing is too convenient.

  • Innocent khattak says:

    1)100 Troops
    2)8 Helicopters
    3)Modern Technology
    4)Intelligence
    Wow Great USA👏👏😂😂
    For small piece of leader of a group
    Nyc jokes

  • Again, a dead man without a body. That translates as "field agent extraction". He is probably in Israel, playing poker with Bin Laden and Silverstein…

  • .  (on 
    you-tube  film  director 
    Aaron  Russo( who died, probably
    murdered)  tells  of 
    being  told  by 
    Nick  Rockefeller  of 
    the  Rockefeller  family,  
    11 months  before  the  11th
    sept  2001  3 tower 
    demolition,  that  there 
    was  going  to 
    be  an  event , 
    and  people   will 
    be  looking  for 
    people  in  the 
    caves  of  Afghanistan , 
    and  he  said 
    there  was  going 
    to  be  an 
    on  going  war 
    on  terror  which 
    will  just  go 
    on  and  on, 
    because  there  is 
    no  real  terrorists, 
    and  Aaron  Russo 
    said  Nick  Rockefeller  
    laughed  after  he 
    said  that.  Even 
    though  there  are 
    no  real  terrorists, and  Nick 
    Rockefeller  told  him 
    out  of  this

  • Titanic The Greatest Ice Bucket Challenge says:

    And just like Osama bin Laden, there is no body. It's ok, i can take you people at your word.

  • Very disappointed. It would have been a better situation if he is captivated alive, tortured and make him go all that Mueller has gone through. Very disappointing ! But a bit happy an animal is killed. America is best ! Undeniably the most powerful nation in the world.

  • I think maybe ISIS soldiers wanted Raqqa and Mosul because they wanted home cities. I think they have home in Lima and Herat. I think ISIS is Hattian and Incan. Lima is an Incan city. Herat is Sunni and Taliban is ISIS friend. I am Juliet Tun.
