This morning, the United States announced that the US Military had carried out an operation that resulted in the death of Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurayshi. And during a press conference to discuss the operation, Joe Biden had a message for the terrorists who might try and take the ISIS leader’s place.Biden began:
“Our team is still compiling the report, but we do follow that as our troops approached to capture the terrorist, in a final act of desperate cowardice, with no regard to the lives of his own family or others in the building, he chose to blow himself up. Not just [himself] with the vest, but blow up the third floor rather than face justice for the crimes he has committed, taking several members of his family with him, just as his predecessor did.”
The President continued, “I’m determined to protect the American people from terrorist threats, and I’ll take decisive action to protect this country and will continue working with our close allies and partners. Last night’s operation took a major terrorist leader off the battlefield and sent a strong message to terrorists around the world: we will come after you and find you.”
