President Donald Trump is getting it done. While he faces non-stop torment and investigations from those who oppose, constant protests from the #Resist movement, and even a possible burning in his eyes when he sees Kathy Griffin in a revolting topless video, then you can only imagine how distracted he is. Needless to say, the president is getting things done amid the distractions and nonsense. While the haters are paying attention to nothingburgers, Trump’s forces are taking out ISIS and their affiliates and the media barely pays any attention to it.
Is this more than Obama could manage? The United States action and airstrikes against ISIS is up about 500% since 2016, so that’s giving you a very good perspective about how Trump is serious about fighting terrorism. The work they do just gets overshadowed by the political battles and distractions from the media. That somewhat puts Obama’s fight against terror to shame.
It’s no shock that you may not have heard about what just happened when an ISIS affiliate leader was taken out. U.S. Forces-Afghanistan spokesman Lt. Col. Martin O’Donnell has reported that the leader of an ISIS affiliate in Afghanistan was dropped like a sack of bricks after an American drone strike took him out. The man’s name is Abu Sayeed Orakzai and he was pronounced deceased by the deputy spokesperson for Afghanistan’s President Ashraf Ghani. Abu
is was the leader of ISIS-K.
Abu and his ISIS-K group were responsible for multiple bombings that took the lives of hundreds of civilians. This United States drone strike takes out another head leader of a group that put civilians in danger and bombed them.
“I would also add that the United States unrelentingly continues its counterterrorism efforts against ISIS-K, Al-Qaeda, and other regional and international terrorist groups,” O’Donnell said in a statement.”
Trump’s military launched airstrikes into the Nangarhar province, which is near the border of Pakistan. The drone strike took out the ISIS-K leader and reportedly ten other ISIS members as well.
Fox News reports that “Orakzai is at least the 3rd ISIS-K leader in Afghanistan killed in the past 2 years. The Islamic State has lost around 90 percent of the lands bordering Iraq and Syria since declaring a caliphate in June 2014.
The killing of Orakzai comes just takes after an audio recording of the Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi apparently resurfaced, in which he congratulated his followers on the occasion of Eid al-Adha, an Islamic holiday, and referenced Turkey’s recent quarrel with the U.S. over its detention of American pastor Andrew Brunson.
He purportedly said “America is going through the worse time in its entire existence,” and said Russia was competing with the U.S. over regional influence and clout.
Al-Baghdadi’s whereabouts has eluded captors since the rise of the Islamic State. His only public appearance was in 2014 in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul. His last know audio recording was released on Sept. 28, 2017, and there have been several reports is his death or injury.”
It’s reported that a new military commander from the U.S. will take over in Afghanistan. His name is Lt. Gen. Scott Miller and he’s the former head of Joint Special Operations Command. He will direct the top commando units Delta Force, 75th Ranger Regiment, and Seal Team 6.
It was also reported that the United States military has at least doubled the number of air strikes they launched in Afghanistan over just the last year. Ever since 2016, the increase has been about 500%. Trump wasn’t kidding when he said he was taking out ISIS.
Many critics have often felt like former President Obama had sympathized with terrorists, but President Trump is completely different.
Trump wants to knock them all out.
