Trigger warning: raging freedom boner.
A team of Delta Operators conducted a Direct-Action raid on the Islamic State in al-Amir, Syria last night. A US Defense Official speaking under condition of anonymity stated that Cleric Abu Sayyaf was the “Islamic State’s Emir of Oil and Gas” while having “associations” with al-Baghdadi, the leader of this clusterfuck. Of course he was a Baghdadi, amirite? Any halfwit who served back in OIF II remembers lobbing Papa Freedom’s M203 sandwiches to these idiots. Apparently this guy Sayyaf “resisted capture” and engaged D-Boys in hand to hand combat. Lolzolozlolzolzol
Ass-ociated Press states that this is the “first known target raid inside of Syria” and we all know why. The National Security Council (Obama’s echo chamber for foreign policy) says “President Obama authorized the strike (omg Obawwwma is so awesome you guys even though I don’t pay attention to anything in the news) on unanimous recommendation from his national security team. Can’t fault him for wanting to grease the Islamic State, though, can ya?
Do as I say, not as I do. When it fits the Prez’s storyline of his magnanimous self, he blows the story wide open, through a statement from his security council. When an Operator who was there wants to tell the story, he gets gaslighted by the government and persecuted for “national security” and “opsec” and blah-blah-blah. I seriously doubt the capability of civilian-military leadership. With less than 10% of Congress having served, the disconnect is apparent in the White House’s apparently lack of confidentiality agreements.
Can you imagine the sound these Islamic State ragheads made when they realized they couldn’t engage D-Boys in hand to hand? Like a stuck pig.
Son, our knife fighting comes straight from American Prisons, okay, the most populated and brutal in the world. Shit, remember that time we turned your little Iraqi prison into a hellhole? Pepperidge Farm remembers.
