    The raid over the weekend was in an effort to kill ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, a man responsible for many deaths in the Middle East and abroad. The raid was successful and as with any of the President’s victories, there is sharp criticism coming his way from the Democrat party and the American left. Here is what you need to know about the raid, no narratives, only facts:




    1.) Who WAS Baghdadi?

    Baghdadi was a radical Islamic leader who stepped up the ranks and ran the organization many in the west know as ISIS. He is responsible for many deaths, including soldiers and countless citizens. Baghdadi led ISIS’s massive expansion and remained in charge throughout its collapse in recent months.



    2.) How did we Find him?

    Many of these terrorist officials remain in the shadows and only come forward for an occasional video that is to be used as propaganda, their whereabouts are kept secret as to avoid capture or assassination. The only reason the United States Government and its allies found Baghdadi was because one of his relatives went turncoat. 

    Mohammed Ali Sajet, who was an ISIS member for several years and is related to Baghdadi, gave the key intel needed to locate Baghdadi. The information went through the Iraqi government where it was handed off to the US after his location was discovered the raid began.




    3.) Who is Next?


    With the death of the leader of ISIS many are asking who will take over the organization? It's not clear as to who will take over if anyone does take over. ISIS has been in rapid decline for several years following the Trump administration’s targeted strikes and ongoing operations in the region, now that their leader is gone and the organization has lost a lot of territories some theorize that no one face of the organization will take over. The more likely outcome in the eyes of experts is that ISIS will shatter into subcells that will make few gains in the region.



    4.) The Raid Itself
