Pentagon: Abu Sayed, leader of ISIS-Khorasan, dead

| July 15, 2017

According to CNN, the Pentagon has announced that Abu Sayed, the leader of ISIS-Khorasan, the Islamic State in Afghanistan was killed in a drone attack on their headquarters on July 11th;

US Navy Captain Bill Salvin, spokesman for US Forces Afghanistan provided additional detail of how Abu Sayed was killed. Salvin said he was killed in an airstrike by a US drone. The initial Pentagon statement described Sayed being killed in a “raid”.

Secretary of Defense James Mattis told reporters on Friday that the death of a leader like Sayed “sets them back for a day a week, a month, it’s about who it is and what kind of people are below them. It is obviously a victory on our side in terms of setting them back, it’s the right direction.”

I guess his retirement package rolls over to the next guy. Killing the leaders hasn’t had a lasting effect on these terrorist groups, but every little bit helps, I suppose. The only good terrorist is a dead terrorist. If we can’t dissuade them from their corrupt ideology, the only option is to kill them all.

    So, when an ISIS member is dispatched to the eternal sleep, is it customary in their culture to erect a memorial consisting of Mylar balloons, teddy bears and candles? Providing that service to ISIS clientele in that part of the world just may be a growing industry under the current administration.

      You might want to alter the business plan to include fluffy toy baby goats dressed in burqas instead of teddy bears. The value add in a jihadist market often yields better scale if rendered with a localized identifier…

        Now I’m hungry. I got four frozen one-person pizzas from Aldi: chicken fajita and el taco grandioso. I also got turtle cheesecake and chocolate ice cream. Who says living well means spending tons of cash?

    Well, I guess he’ll be looking for his virgins.

    I only hope he was ‘dropping a deuce’ in a deep squat scanning thru the lingerie section of a used 1982 Sear’s Catalogue when it landed on his wrinkled ass. He probably thought the day was starting out pretty good
