Yesterday, President Trump announced that the leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, died during a U.S. Special Forces raid over the weekend.
Last night was a great night for the United States and for the world. A brutal killer, one who has caused so much hardship and death, has violently been eliminated – he will never again harm another innocent man, woman or child. He died like a dog. He died like a coward. The world is now a much safer place.
On today’s show, we discussed the major victory for America and for the world, the death of al-Baghdadi, the so-called Caliph of the Islamic State (ISIS).
Senator Lindsey Graham’s reaction to the news was:
It’s a good day for the world, and a real blow to the ISIS organization. He was the spiritual leader, he was their heart and soul. He is dead, the caliphate has been destroyed because President Trump changed the rules.
ISIS has inflicted a tremendous amount of brutality around the world, not just in Syria and Iraq, but in many other places. There are so many instances of their terror attacks, as well as the one’s they inspired, that you can’t possibly go over all of them in one single show.
Al-Baghdadi had been tracked and targeted to be either captured or killed. This is a man who carried out beheadings, crucifixions, burned people alive, held public executions, and killed women and children. This is the most brutal terror group of the modern time. They broadcast their brutality to recruit others. This man was a disgrace to humanity, and it is a great day for the world and the United States that he is no longer with us.
This mission that ended with al-Baghdadi’s death was named after Kayla Mueller who was kidnapped and murdered by ISIS.
ACLJ Senior Counsel Skip Ash (a retired Army Lieutenant Colonel) had the following assessment of al-Baghdadi:
This was one of the most brutal persons living in the world today and even his fellow Muslims were turning on him because he was so brutal. It’s amazing when you have a group like Al-Qaeda turn on him because he was too brutal.
The significance is pretty important. First, he had proclaimed himself to be the Caliph, God’s representative on Earth. And he just got killed. This takes away the legitimacy from his followers. He was not the Caliph. He did not enjoy God’s favor or else he would have been able to accomplish what he wanted.
We also discussed on the show how the Washington Post couldn’t figure out how to write a headline regarding al-Baghdadi’s death. They actually referred to him as an “austere religious scholar”. Shame on the Washington Post. At least the New York Times got the headline right.
