Washington, DC (October 27, 2019) -- Last night, members of the United States armed forces, acting on orders of President Donald Trump, found and killed the leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. RJC Executive Director Matt Brooks released the following statement:
Today is a proud day for the American people and especially the US military. In ordering the mission to find and capture or kill Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, President Trump served justice on behalf of the American people and our allies. Al-Baghdadi was responsible for a global terrorist movement that murdered innocent people of all walks of life. The world is undoubtedly a safer place today.
