Al-Baghdadi, by the way, was hiding out in Idlib Governorate.

Who has control Idblib Governorate since 2017? Turkey. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkish_military_operation_in_Idlib_Governorate

Who has 12 observation posts that are basically military bases? Turkey https://thedefensepost.com/2019/08/21/syria-idlib-military-escalation-turkey/

And who wasn't informed about the raid for fear of tipping off Al-Baghdadi? Turkey https://twitter.com/KonstantinKlug/status/1188398310262001665

Erdogan needed to legitimise his coup with as many allies as possible right, he was also seen as a sharp swing to the right, what better allies then ISIS to keep Syria weak and Turkeys presence in Syria strong

Someone suggested a theory that this was a sop to Trump, that the Turks (via a third party) sold Al-Baghdadi out because it gives Trump an easy win to crow about, instead of the focus being on the betrayal of the SDF.

This sounds remarkably likely, given how his administration seems to run.

And Russia is claiming it never happened. Not just that they didn't get him - which would be believable, given recent history - but that there was no airstrike at all.

That's a little harder to swallow. The Trump administration can't say "good morning" without lying twice, but they'd have to convince a lot of people to go along with that, to fake an entire military operation and its outcome. And then al-Baghdadi could just go "lol nope" the next day.

Like with the whole Bin Laden thing, I don't think the US would claim a kill unless they had a justifiable reason to believe it and that the target wouldn't pop up the next day and contradict them.

Hasn't Baghdadi been killed a couple of times already? I would assume this announcement means he's alive well and living in brooklyn.
Nine naked Men just walking down the road will cause a heap of trouble for all concerned.

9 times since 2015 and at least twice before that (though he is not to be confused with Abu Omar al-Baghdadi, who was also killed multiple times).

Posting the obvious here, to bookmark it for FB when I get home.

I want him to win the Nobel Peace prize, that would make not only my day, but my decade.  :lulz:

Better yet: Tell him that the majority of the committee wanted him to have it, but he was overridden by the Electoral College.

Pelosi was also not informed.

She isn't really required to be informed, but Trump then said he didn't tell her so it wouldn't leak.   :lulz:

Despite strong evidence to the contrary, it was a persistent rumor that it was Abu Omar al-Baghdadi who swallowed Mr. Momomoto's brother's nose.

I see why Pelosi is doing this, but it's risky.

WASHINGTON (AP) — An Army officer at the National Security Council who twice raised concerns over the Trump administration’s push to have Ukraine investigate Democrats and Joe Biden, arrived in military uniform on Capitol Hill to testify Tuesday in the impeachment inquiry.

Alexander Vindman, an lieutenant colonel who served in Iraq and, later, as a diplomat, is prepared to tell House investigators that he listened to President Donald Trump’s July 25 call with new Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskiy and reported his concerns to the NSC’s lead counsel, according to prepared testimony.

Snip

Quote
At least one Trump ally sought to discredit Vindman ahead of his testimony by appearing to question his loyalty to the U.S. Former GOP Rep. Sean Duffy told CNN that the Purple Heart recipient has an “affinity” for Ukraine.

“It seems very clear that he is incredibly concerned about Ukrainian defense,” he said. “I don’t know that he’s concerned about American policy, but his main mission was to make sure that the Ukraine got those weapons.”

Yes.  Because he was an officer, and that was the mission he was given.   :lol:
