Good news this morning, with the death of this bastard. I've learned not to trust anything I hear on the tactics and events of an operation like this until the smoke clears. Much of what we'll hear in the first aftermath is fantasy by media and political personalities, but in a few days we should hear some concrete news. I was amused that the Washington Post changed their death notice from “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, Islamic State’s ‘terrorist-in-chief,’ dies at 48” to “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, austere religious scholar at helm of Islamic State, dies at 48.” It shows how politically divided we are that a left leaning media source has to make Baghdadi sound like Ghandi. Anyhoo, I thought it might be interesting to kick around this operation as real facts come online. .
