WASHINGTON, DC—Yesterday, the President announced the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi during an army special forces operation in Northern Syria. This important military victory significantly weakens ISIS, which has already suffered the loss of its caliphate in the Levant.
Upon hearing this good news, former Army Ranger Representative Warren Davidson (R-OH) said:
"I commend our soldiers for their bravery. Thanks to their efforts, the world is that much safer for democracy, and a dangerous international threat has been removed. This decisive operation also proves that the United States armed services are capable of securing freedom without invading more and more countries or intervening in regional disputes. This era of restrained foreign policy need not signal a retreat from global politics, but shows that with the right resources, personnel, and mission, the United States can defend its interests while ending the devastating wars that have cost Americans so much."
