USA hero dog wounded in Baghdadi operation shall go unnamed for now

USA hero dog wounded in Baghdadi operation shall go unnamed for now

About two hours later, the special forces team that lead the operation declared "jackpot" to announce they had killed the terrorist leader.

President Donald Trump says Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is dead after a USA military operation in Syria targeted the Islamic State group leader.

Mazloum Abdi, the general commander of Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), also said Monday that al-Muhajir was killed in a coordinated operation between the United States military and SDF intelligence officers near Jarablus in northern Syria.

Mr Esper said the oil field mission will also ensure income for Syrian Kurds who are counted on by Washington to continue guarding IS prisoners and helping American forces combat remnants of the group - even as President Donald Trump continues to insist all U.S. troops will come home.

Donald Trump's tweet picturing a dog that helped "capture and kill" the Islamic State group's leader is inspiring dog owners to share pictures.

Hemingway told Kilmeade that it "wasn't just the headline" that was appalling, but that the "entire article was very gentle towards this man who was a serial rapist, genocidal murderer, someone who had killed so many Americans and other people who opposed his political and religious agenda".

The canine would be thrust into the spotlight. Apparently POTUS thought otherwise as he had the pic declassified so he could tweet about it.

The United States had DNA samples on file of al-Baghdadi, an Iraqi Sunni detained by USA forces in 2004 in the flashpoint city of Fallujah before rising to the helm of the Islamic State group, also known as ISIS.

The decision followed almost a whole day of the Pentagon wrestling with how much to say about the pooch.

"It's a classified unit and (we're) protecting the dog's identity", he said. Releasing the name, they said, ran the risk of identifying the service members to which it was assigned.

"We're not releasing the name of the dog right now", said Army Gen. Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

"The security situation in Syria remains complex", he said, adding, "Acting as a police force out to solve every dispute is not our mission".

The General said the dog was recovering from its wound and had returned to duty at an undisclosed location. Precise details about the dog are mostly unknown, but news of its injuries caught on quickly among news followers, many of whom expressed a need to know if the fearless canine will be alright. "Watch how happy he is when he notices he's onscreen", he said on Kimmel Live, "and then the boos come in". It has been commonly seen that though militant groups suffer a blow after the death of charismatic leaders - Osama bin Laden in Al Qaeda's case, Mullah Omar in that of the Afghan Taliban - their ideology lives on and often, if the infrastructure of terrorism is not uprooted, they can evolve into more ferocious outfits.

He acknowledged the dog had been "a cramped wounded and is fully bettering".
