ISIS Chief Baghdadi Betrayed – Now His Trusted Confidant-Turned-Traitor May Get $25 Million Reward

On Sunday, President Donald Trump excitedly shared with fellow Americans details of the U.S. military operation that led to the death of terrorist leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in a nearly 50-minute live press conference. In comparison, former President Barack Obama used up only 9-minute of press time when he announced an operation that killed Osama bin Laden.


On May 2, 2011, when Obama announced that U.S. special forces had finally located and killed the elusive al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden during a raid on a compound in Pakistan, 10 years after the terrorist leader had masterminded the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the U.S. soil, American people took to the street to celebrate the event.


But the mission was timed to help the re-election of Barack Obama. Nothing should go to waste, including the termination of Osama. It was such a big deal that on October 23, 2012 – just two weeks before President Obama’s re-election to a second term – frustrated Trump tweeted – “Stop congratulating Obama for killing Bin Laden. The Navy Seals killed Bin Laden.”

ISIS Leader Al-Baghdadi Killed

Amusingly, some eight years later, it’s President Donald Trump turn to play the same drama when he announced on Oct 27, 2019 that a U.S. special operation had resulted in the death of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. Obviously, he had taken a page from Obama’s playbook to boost his 2020 re-election campaign. So, now he’s claiming credits, but had refused to let Obama do the same.


But unlike Obama, Mr. Trump was in the business of reality television program “The Apprentice” before running for President of the United States in the 2016 election. The killing of the ISIS brutal leader essentially provided him the golden opportunity to brag and boast about his leadership. In fact, he celebrated the death of al-Baghdadi as if the country had won a World War III.


In 2011, Barack Obama described the military operation in just five sentences. In contrast, Trump gave an incredibly detailed description of the raid, what he saw and heard while watching the operation from the Situation Room, details of al-Baghdadi’s death, and even mocked and insulted the ISIS terrorist leader so much so some parts of the story have raise eyebrows

ISIS Leader Al-Baghdadi Killed - President Donald Trump and Security Team

Trump said – “He died after running into a dead-end tunnel, whimpering, crying, and screaming all the way. The compound had been cleared by this time with people either surrendering or being shot and killed. Eleven young children were moved out of the house and are un-injured. The only ones remaining were Baghdadi in the tunnel.”


The president continued – “He dragged three of his young children with him. He reached the end of the tunnel, as our dogs chased them down. He ignited his vest, killing himself and the three children. His body was mutilated by the blast, the tunnel had caved in on it in addition. Test results gave certain, immediate, and totally positive identification. It was him.”


The Commander-in-Chief went further – “The thug who tried so hard to intimidate others spent his last moments in utter fear, and total panic and dread, terrified of the American forces bearing down on him. We were in the compound for approximately two hours, and after the mission was accomplished we took the highly sensitive material and information from the raid.”

Trump also talked about the details leading up to the raid – “We knew about where he was going, where he was heading. We had very good information that he was going to another location. He did not go. Two or three efforts were canceled because he decided to change his mind, constantly changing his mind.”


Despite the fact that Trump claimed the ISIS leader was “whimpering and crying and screaming” like a “dog” when U.S. troops descended on him, no one has any idea where the president got that description. Senior administration officials as well as Pentagon officials were left scratching their head after they listened to the president’s account in real time.


But who cares if the U.S. president decides to have a little entertainment and pleasure by making up stories to spice up the killing of the terrorist leader. Everyone knows that the raid, carried out by at least 50 U.S. Army Rangers and special-operator Delta Force flew on eight helicopters from Iraq, was a result of intelligence gathered by the CIA and U.S. allies.

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi (Islamic State, ISIS, ISIL Leader)

However, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi might still be alive today if not for a critical informant, who turns out to be a trusted member of the ISIS leader’s inner circle. Yes, the chief of the terror group was actually betrayed his own trusted man, whose nationality is kept in the dark. Without Baghdadi realising it, his confidant has been assisting the U.S. and partner forces for months.


Heck, the informant had even retrieved a pair of the ISIS leader’s used underwear three months ago to confirm Baghdadi’s presence and identity in the compound in Idlib, Syria. The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have claimed they played a key role in tracking down Baghdadi, and it was them who had managed to place the spy who stole the underpants of the ISIS leader.


According to The Washington Post, the mole planted was so deep within Baghdadi’s inner circle that he was trusted to escort members of the ISIS leader’s family to medical appointments. The spy was present during the raid by the U.S. Delta Force and two days after the successful raid, the informant and his family left the region and may receive US$25 million bounty.

Syrian Democratic Forces SDF

Although Trump has claimed credit for masterminding the operation that led to Baghdadi’s death and played down the role of the SDF in placing the spy, The Washington Post has corroborated that the informant is indeed a disillusioned ISIS member who was initially cultivated by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) after a family member was killed by the terrorist group.


SDF commander, General Mazloum Abdi has said that an SDF asset was the key to the operation against Baghdadi. It was also the source who oversaw construction of the safe house of Baghdadi’s hideout – an information that proved very vital to the operation, as well as the intelligence that the ISIS leader always had a suicide vest on him in case he were to be captured.


Baghdadi had been notoriously difficult to track and the breakthrough came only in February 2018, when an aide to the slain Islamic State leader disclosed how Baghdadi had evaded capture. The aide, identified as Ismael al-Ethawi, was arrested by Turkish authorities in the summer of 2018 and later handed over to Iraqi authorities.

Islamic State - ISIS - Terrorists

Apparently, Baghdadi would sometimes hold strategic meetings with his commanders in moving minibuses packed with vegetables in order to avoid detection. He decided that hiding in Idlib was his best hope after Islamic State was all but wiped out in Iraq and Syria. The lack of security and checkpoints in Idlib also means he could blend in and hide.


In the aftermath of Baghdadi’s death, several of Washington’s allies in the Middle East have rushed to claim credit for their alleged roles in the militant leader’s capture and death. However, the fact remains that it was the SDF spy who was entrusted with helping Baghdadi change locations around Idlib, an unlikely place to hide out considering it is under Russian air control.


Like the anonymous sea burial given to al-Qaeda chief Osama Bin Laden, US officials also reported that Baghdadi’s remains had been buried at sea from an aircraft in an unknown location. For now, ISIS is in disarray as Baghdadi’s immediate successor or replacement has also been killed. But the ideology of ISIS is still very much alive and kicking.

It’s a matter of time before the next terrorist chief emerges. And the process will repeat itself. For now, Trump will milk the death of Baghdadi to the fullest, making it part of his campaign speeches. It doesn’t matter if he’s a hypocrite. As a former TV show celebrity, Donald Trump will definitely make the Baghdadi mission one of his big wins.

All tyrants , despots , dictators, racist bigoted leaders are hollow in their cranium except being brutal in act and manners. They believe, that will be enough to allow them stay in power. Thru’ their brutality it is always easy to make enemies and very high chances of betrayal. It is a lesson to all and even to Malaysian politicians and leaders not to be arrogant and a demeanour of a racist bigoted character. You won’t last long!!!!!!! Even your own kind do not have the stomch to allow perpetuation of absurdities..

Hello Finance Twitter,

It appears this blog don’t like Donald Trump. I wonder why.

Warts and all, i am of the opinion Donald J Trump is the greatest president of the United States (in fact, any state, any country). With him in the White House, the world will be a better place. I look forward to the day, America becomes friends with China and Russia – and the world will be at its roaring best!

The world needs more Donald Trumps who puts the people first and delivers what he promises (albeit with some flip-flops, bound to happen, and for real reasons we are not privy too). What a difference Malaysia would be if there’s a PM like him!

The Left hates him because he single-handedly has thrown a spanner in their engine that’s hurtling their plan for an evil New World Order.

Don’t get me wrong. i, too, want to see a NWO happening – the one that’ll be brought about by Jesus Christ. The devil always wants to screw up God’s plan!

Take care and keep up the good work.

We had written tons of pro-Trump articles … try search for it.

I agreed with what ewoon said.

As much as I don’t like how Donald Trump gives big statements and wanting to build the silly wall – the intention does have some purpose, to control the immigration, though the wall method is silly.

Anyhow, one must admit under Donald’s tenure:
1) ISIS is almost powerless now
2) Some progress was made for North Korea peace deal.

This is way better than the charismatic Nobel Peace Prize winner Obama. (ISIS crisis & Ukraine crisis happened during his tenure)

ISIS is gone primarily due to Russia. But sure, Trump played a role … working with Russia instead of doing the opposite (like Obama) …

Ok financetwitter @8,28 pm, then be consistent. It appears the blog flip-flops, too (for reason/s that i am not privy to?)

Opinions remain just that but what’s important as a widely read? commentary blog one has to project a consistent stand and not cast aspersions on a leader who is all out to do good for his country & by consequence the world.

Donald Trump is the greatest leader living today. He may be a billionaire, has no political experience, was a reality-show star and sound funny to some – but he’s real and he’s genuine in doing what’s right and good. And he’s doing it for free! Where does one find someone like him anywhere on planet earth?

i pray he gets re-elected and gets to drain the Washington swamp completely. It will be good for America. It will be good for the world.


He hired the same group of people whom he should be drained. The Washington swamp is still the same 3 years after he got elected, nothing changed. And we’re supposed to obediently follow him just for the sack of not being seen as flip-flopping?

financetwitter @11.41 am

The Washington swamp / the Deep State have their tentacles deep, far and white – if finacetwitter does not recognise this, i am sorry, then your ‘observation/insight’ seems shallow.

The so-called recycling of the swamp, to me, is a conciliatory gesture at deal-making, providing the opportunity to ‘make good’ past mistakes. When those given the chance turn out to be incorrigible, Trump does not hesitate to show them the door. Moreover, how many capable ‘good men’ is brave enough to pick up the challenge – for fear of being ‘suicided’?

Shd financetwitter fail to ‘see’ this intricate/delicate aspect of the job then, will all due respect, financetwitter’s analysis is at best ‘skin deep, but financetwitter is better than this.

Also, your ‘obedience’ shd look to see the bigger picture – achievements against unavoidable u-turns which we hv no way of knowing the ‘real reason’ for the better good. But as deep thinkers we can surmise, don’t we, on hindsight?

Give Trump the credit where it’s due. NO PRESIDENT / PM ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, PAST & PRESENT, HAS ACHIEVED WHAT THIS MAN HAS DONE IN A SHORT TIME IN OFFICE (and i dare say will NEVER be bettered anytime soon.) Oh, how we wish we have a Donald Trump on our soil now!

i am confident Trump will get re-elected (if financetwitter has missed the ‘anointing factor’ then what can i say? Have FT bothered to scour the internet for information of this man and study who, what & how consistent he is? although David Letterman loved to take the mickey out of him) and he will do whatever he can to make the world a safer, friendlier and more prosperous place.

Donald Trump is a on-man wrecking-ball fighting the evil, satanic globalists & NWO-freaks hell-bent to destroy the world. And he has the gumption and b@lls to do it! He didn’t need to do it. He cld hv laid back, make more billions and enjoy his life. No. Donald Trump is not that kind of ‘good man’ who wld look the other way and not step up to the plate.

i wish him well and pray YHWH will bless him & protect him & keep him – for the work he has to do for the betterment of the world.

Don’t get hot under the collar now FT, okay? Cheers!

Of course the tentacles were deep. Yet, Trump spectacularly hires / adds more tentacles.

You must be kidding to say he is consistent. You meant he is consistently inconsistent, right? He was consistent only during his 2016 presidential campaign, but not anymore.

His tax law already saved his own business empire tons of money. So don’t think for a second he was doing a charity work running for president.

But I agree he could get re-elected because he spoke the language that conservative Americans like to hear. That’s provided the trade war didn’t screw-up the farmers first.

finacetwitter @1.03 am

First, pardon the typos in previous response.

Anywaz, told ya not to get hot under the collar. When you respond in anger. you lose it. Focus. Objectivity. Sense. Did i touch a raw nerve?

Also, when has sarcasm maketh good argument? You sounded so much like the CNN folks!

And you protesteth too much!

Cool it, bro. Take care.


financetwitter @1.03 am

As for “That’s provided the trade war didn’t screw-up the farmers first.”

Here’s your answer, listen from 39:30 …

Like i said, you’ve to be ‘well-informed.’ Don’t get blinkered by the CNN folks. The farmers, whether it’s the weather or the on-going trade war with China, they are well compensated – by China. Heck, they’ll also make extra money by selling their unsold yield as animal feed, perhaps.

Donald Trump may not be the smartest around but he’s no fool. i would even go so far as to say he pulled a fast one when he announced US was pulling out of Syria. i believe that was a ruse to flush out Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi – a strategy Sun Tzu would have applauded.

Be a ‘big picture’ blogger. Leave the ‘small picture’ narrative to the CNN folks.

Still love ya blog.

Here’s the big picture – Farm bankruptcies jump to highest level since 2011 as Trump’s tariffs bite


Cheers Mate …
