    Isis leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi 'seriously wounded in air strike'

    Exclusive: Baghdadi no longer in day-to-day control of terror group as he recovers from injuries sustained during attack in March, according to sources














    The leader of Islamic State, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, has been seriously wounded in an air strike in western Iraq, sources have told the Guardian.
    A source in Iraq with connections to the terror group revealed that Baghdadi suffered serious injuries during an attack by the US-led coalition in March. The source said Baghdadi’s wounds were at first life-threatening, but he has since made a slow recovery. He has not, however, resumed day-to-day control of the organisation.
    Baghdadi’s wounding led to urgent meetings of Isis leaders, who initially believed he would die and made plans to name a new leader.
    Two separate officials – a western diplomat and an Iraqi adviser – confirmed the strike took place on 18 March in the al-Baaj a district of Nineveh, close to the Syrian border. There had been two previous reports in November and December of Baghdadi being wounded, though neither was accurate.

    It is being reported that an airstrike has severely wounded Baghdadi, nearly killed him, and he is no longer in control of ISIS. It is being reported that local ISIS councils are handling the day to day operations of the group now while Baghdadi is slowly recovering.

    They'll do their best to replace Him or wait until he recovers.

    Good, but not good enough.

    Of course, a wounded enemy is better than a dead one that can be left behind.

    aside from claiming the caliphate..What does it matter now? There are plenty of Iraqis already running the ISIL army.
    It would be a blow, but I don't think it would effect ISIL ops.

    So I gather we are still playing wack-a-mole with terrorism. Nothing changes by this. They are simply going to have MORE hatred for us now.

    Team BO still says no. No evidence then and none now.


    Report: ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was 'seriously wounded' in a March airstrike — Pentagon denies.....

    Two officials, one Western and one Iraqi, confirmed to The Guardian that the airstrike targeted multiple cars in the town of Baaj in northwestern Iraq on March 18.

    The Pentagon has denied the report. Defense officials told The Daily Beast that the air strike was not aimed at a high-value target and that they "have no reason to believe it was Baghdadi." They said there was no evidence then or since then that Baghdadi was killed.....snip~

    Well the Caliphate is everything. It can be argued that Islam is still trying to recover from the civil war brought on by the death of Mohammed. The central figure of ISIS is Baghdadi, and if he dies you will see a number of high ranking ISIS mullahs vying for the role of future Caliph. If history is any guide, the competition for succession will not go smoothly.

    this is a long but interesting read..the caliphate is and isn't "everything" ..I agree the jihadists need a caliph,
    and Baghdadi is perfect for that, but IS would prolly go on without him
