Petty, petty, petty…

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is dead! US Special Operations personnel got him night before last in Idlib Province in Syria…

“We had some incredible intelligence officials that did a great job,” Trump said during remarks at the White House on Sunday. 

Funny how CNN’s coverage is basically negative, ‘BAD’ things are going to happen in response, not a big deal, etc. HERE

The WAPO was almost complementary, HERE… Almost… Austere Religious Scholar is how they are labeling Baghdadi. Really??? How about terrorist, which is what he really was!

Pelosi ‘response’- (Bold mine)

“Americans salute the heroism, dedication and skill of our military and our intelligence professionals and acknowledge the work of our partners in the region.  We are relieved that no U.S. personnel died in this daring raid.

“The death of al-Baghdadi is significant, but the death of this ISIS leader does not mean the death of ISIS.  Scores of ISIS fighters remain under uncertain conditions in Syrian prisons, and countless others in the region and around the world remain intent on spreading their influence and committing acts of terror. 

“This month, the House passed a joint resolution on an overwhelmingly bipartisan 354-60 basis which rejects President Trump’s green-lighting of Turkish aggression into Syria against our Kurdish partners, and calls on him to present a clear strategy to defeat ISIS.  The House must be briefed on this raid, which the Russians but not top Congressional Leadership were notified of in advance, and on the Administration’s overall strategy in the region.  Our military and allies deserve strong, smart and strategic leadership from Washington.”

Nancy, Nancy, Nancy, there is a REASON you and your people weren’t told. It’s called OPSEC, or Operational Security. This is not the previous administration which leaked like a sieve on operations. Yes, the Russians were told before the Op, to deconflict our forces essentially operating in a Russian controlled zone.

Congress ‘makes’ laws, they don’t enforce them, nor does Congress have operational control of military assets. There was no ‘good’ reason to let Congress know, since I have no doubt you or your minions would have leaked this allowing Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi to escape just to frustrate the president… It’s sad that I believe that, but nothing you have done leads me to believe anything different.

Your mealy-mouthed ‘statement’ is nothing more than a sideways swipe at the military you hate, couched in ‘congratulations’, while pandering to your base with the last two paragraphs… Sad, sad, sad…

This is an important day for America and its allies in the global war on terrorism, the head of the leading ‘snake’ in this terror organization has been chopped off blown off by his own hand, regardless of what the media is spouting.

Hats off to the SOCOM folks that participated in and supported this raid!

Edit to add- Twitchy jumped in on the ‘skewed’ death headlines… Snerk… HERE.

  1. In Georgia, politics are somewhat distorted.
    We still have some old-school Democrats (not very many, as they have aged out/died (ex: Zell Miller), or been pushed out by the left-ward swing of the national party (ex: Nathan Deal)), but in urban areas, the Democrats tend to follow along with the national party.
    So, we have a Democratic candidate for the Senate seat currently held by Republican David Perdue castigating the successful attack, and ripping the response of Perdue (and others) praising the result, and saying we need to give peace a chance, or something…actually, “by building common cause with the persecuted peoples of the world.”
    I wonder if people like this act as bleed-off valves, reducing the tension, or if they act as more fuel to the fire? I guess we will just have to wait and see.

  2. Killed a rabid dog, good job.
    Not the end of rabies but that dog won’t be spreading it anymore.

  3. Pelosi deserves neither consideration nor respect. Nor is the CinC obligated to inform the House before ops begin. Of course, it’s pretty clear she now believes that she herself is the House.

  4. Well said, sir. Just give Pelosi a bottle and lead her back to her office and she will be good for the rest of the day… or until the bottle is empty.

  5. Pat- Excellent point! I remember Zell Miller. He was a class act!

    Gerry- Agreed! A new dog will pop up, but it won’t have the ‘prestige’ of Baghdadi…

    PE- They BOTH already are! Pelosi’s hubby has gotten rich off her position…

    Rev- Concur!

    Cranston- Wow! Thanks, I hadn’t seen that, since I don’t follow twit world…

    CP- Snerk… yep…

  6. Funny, when O’Bungler invaded Pakistan to slab Osama BL, he didn’t notify either Congress, nor the UN or even Pakistan. And not a peep of protest was heard.

    Yet, in an active military area where we still are, though we’re actually leaving, a raid in the AOA requires Congressional approval?

    After Congress abrogated their war powers to O’Bungler and never took them back?

    I do believe the Hag of the House, oh, I mean the Spitter of the… I mean the Wicked Witch (no, that’s too vague).. I mean the Speaker of the House which used to be a relatively prestigious position but now under Dem control makes a third-rate sideshow barker look credible.. where was I going with this.. oh, yeah, Pelosi sucks rocks. There. Dingbat Extraordinaire. Proof that IQ is not required for government work. And proof that the dems can elect anything in Commiefornia…

    Hey, Pelosi, let’s see all your tax records and the tax records of your family for the last 30 years. Hmmm? What? You refuse? So how is that different, oh, yeah, he’s a Republican…

  7. And, I do dearly love how President Trump described the gentle religious scholar. As lower than a dog, crying etc.

    The operation was named after Kayla Mueller, an aid worker tortured, raped and killed by al Baghdadi.

    This is why we elected Trump. Because he remembers the small people and he fights for us.

  8. Lastly, how is it okay to hide the ‘impeachment’ process in closed meetings, denying any access to said meetings by other congressmen, but the congressmen who are conducting these secret meetings are the very ones bitching about Trump doing things… secretly?

  9. Maybe she would have been briefed if she didn’t have a habit of storming out of meetings with Trump.

    And, oh, there’s that little incident where Creepy Joe leaked Seal Team 6 info and GOT THEM KILLED.

  10. Hey Old NFO;

    I am convinced that Pelosi or some of the other democrats would have finked the raid out to shaft Trump. Their TDS oversteps their being Americans. Trump was smart on not telling them.

  11. Trump needs to start giving incorrect info with the Demon-rats that when leaked leads the enemy straight in to a kill zone.

    That way we kill more terrorists and the D’s credibility goes straight into the toilet with them.
