Trump announces ISIS leader al-Baghdadi is dead

The swift and daring raid by members of the United States Special Operations Command to take out Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was a resounding success.

And this one is something worth knowing.

A Kentucky native led the USA command that led to the death of Islamic State group leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi on Saturday night. She was killed in 2015.

Two of the four Democrats in New Hampshire's congressional delegation, Shaheen and Rep. Chris Pappas, congratulated President Trump on the mission Sunday.

Mr Mueller said he has spoken to Yazidi girls who have managed to escape ISIS captivity and indicated the photographs may have been staged.

Trump announced the death of al-Baghdadi on Sunday morning, saying US forces tracked him down in northern Syria before he detonated a suicide vest, killing himself.

She said the death of Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi after a US raid would be a "blow" to the terrorist organization, but it also brought back memories of her son's death.

In 2012, Kayla traveled to the Turkey/Syria border to work with the Danish Refugee Council and the humanitarian organization Support to Life, which assisted families forced to flee their homes.

On Saturday, al-Baghdadi was chased down by a female Belgian Malinois during a US military raid, before evidently giving up and detonating his suicide vest, killing himself in an explosion. Ottosen said the ISIS had once made Mueller meet prisoners about to be released to prove she was alive, and she had been fearless enough to contradict an ISIS guard to his face.

Her parents Carl and Marsha Mueller are relieved to hear the news of al-Baghdadi's death.

They also thanked Trump and the military for the successful operation in various media interviews but took a swipe at former Pres. Barack Obama on his administration's handling of their daughter's case. Even more galling was that President Trump briefed the Russians on the incursion into their airspace.

US Army Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said he was "not prepared at this time" to release the videos of the raid but added some of the materials were going through a declassification process.

Mr Mueller told the U.S. talk show Today: "They [the government] never takes one piece of intel and acts on it".

'She was held in a house where they would tell her to "get ready, he's coming".

Baghdadi detonated a suicide vest to kill himself as US forces closed in on him, US President Donald Trump said yesterday.

Describing his daughter's ordeal at the hands of the Islamic State, Mueller's father said, "She was held in many prisons". We all know that.

"You know that. I know that".
