Last night, after most of you had gone to bed, breaking news came out that a U.S. airstrike had successfully hit a convoy carrying one of the world’s most wanted terrorists, Jihadi John. It was believed, with little doubt, that Jihadi John was indeed killed, but it could not be confirmed. However, since the initial reports of the attack, it has all but been confirmed that Jihadi John was not only killed, but basically “evaporated” in a kill so clean there was no collateral damage at all.
From ABC news:
The ISIS terrorist dubbed “Jihadi John”, who oversaw the brutal executions of American and Western hostages, was hit by a U.S. air strike Thursday night and is believed to have been killed, U.S. officials told ABC News.
One official said the jihadist, Mohammed Emwazi, was thought to be hit as he left a building in Raqqa, Syria, and entered a vehicle. The official called it a “flawless” and “clean hit” with no collateral damage and that Emwazi basically “evaporated.”
Many have wondered if Jihadi John was merely a CIA operation used to justify America’s airstrikes in Syria. Many are also wondering if the news if his death is meant to overshadow the extreme embarrassment U.S. President Hussein Obama is facing due to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s success in actually fighting a war against the Muslim scum known as ISIS and winning.
