This is news that all decent humans can rejoice over, provided it's true:
A U.S.-led coalition airstrike May 6 targeted and killed Abu Wahib, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’s military emir for Iraq’s Anbar province, Pentagon Press Secretary Peter Cook said today.
The spokesman said Wahib is a former member of al-Qaida in Iraq and has been seen in ISIL execution videos.
That strike also killed three other ISIL jihadists, Cook said.
It is rare for me to hope that someone is burning in Hell, but this Abu Wahib, a pig shit waste of human flesh, definitely qualifies.
I became aware of him through the ISIS video below that shows him interrogating and then murdering three Syrian truck drivers in western Iraq in 2013. I'll warn you, like most ISIS propaganda videos it is shocking in its unvarnished depravity.
I hope those poor men have found the peace of God that will forever be denied to their murderer. Multiply them by who knows how thousands and you have a glimmer of the human cost of Obama's failure to keep us engaged in Iraq.
That video was also a sign of what was to come in Anbar province eight or nine months later. It was shocking to see that ISIS could operate openly in Iraq and shut down a major highway between that nation and Syria with impunity. They obviously had no fear that the Iraqi security forces would interrupt their savagery. Our intelligence agencies and military had to know about this situation, and yet America stood by and watched as it deteriorated into the disaster of 2014.
That's one of Obama's real legacies. If you love the man you should pray that God has mercy on his soul for his indifference.
