U.S. Airstrike In Raqqa, Syria On Sunday Morning

Islamic State Leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi Reportedly Killed By U.S. Airstrike In Raqqa, Syria On Sunday Morning


     The Daily Mail Online is reporting today (June 14, 2014) that Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was reportedly killed by a U.S. airstrike in Raqqa, Syria this past Sunday morning.  The publication notes that the Turkish daily newspaper Yenis Satak is reporting the death of the world’s most wanted man.  Having said that, there has been no official confirmation of al-Baghdadi’s death.  His death would certainly be a welcome development, especially in the aftermath of the Orlando, Florida massacre.  But, al-Baghdadi’s demise has been reported before, only to turn out not to be true.  We’ll just have to wait and see —  and hope.  V/R, RCP
