    Watch Fox News celebrate the MOAB deployment with Toby Keith music

    by Kimberly Alters - April 14, 2017

    The U.S. deployed its largest non-nuclear weapon in Afghanistan on Thursday, targeting tunnels used by regional affiliates of the Islamic State. The 21,600-pound GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast weapon — nicknamed the "mother of all bombs" — is said to have killed dozens of Afghan militants and destroyed three tactical caves. It was the first time the MOAB had been used in combat.

    While President Trump on Thursday dodged a direct question asking if he'd authorized the MOAB's use, he later called the mission "very successful." Afghan officials are still evaluating the detonation's effect, but on Friday morning's Fox & Friends, the network's hosts saw fit to celebrate the weapon's use with the dulcet tunes of country singer Toby Keith. Keith's song "Courtesy of the Red, White, and Blue" played over the Pentagon's footage of the MOAB's landing, prompting host Ainsley Earhardt to proclaim: "That's the red, white, and blue." Watch below.

    ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi allegedly killed by US airstrikes

    Sep 6, 2014

    Thousands of social media users are distributing an unverified photo which claims to show the body of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi after he was purportedly killed by US air strikes after three senior members of ISIS, including an aide to al-Baghdadi were also killed by US air strikes. The death of the three senior members and aide to al-Baghdadi were confirmed by a senior Iraqi security official when interviewed by NBC News on Thursday.

    The strike on the ISIS stronghold of Mosul killed Abu Hajar Al-Sufi, an aide to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, as well as an explosives operative and the military leader of nearby Tal Afar, the source said on condition of anonymity. Al Arabiya cited the Iraqi Defense Ministry saying Baghdadi’s aide had been killed.

    Pentagon Spokesman Col. Steve Warren could not confirm the deaths and said ISIS leaders had not been targeted. But he added that if ISIS leaders were embedded “inside troop formations they are likely to be killed.” The U.S. has been carrying out airstrikes across north Iraq after the brutal terrorists of ISIS gained ground in a murderous sweep in June.

    A number of news outlets and websites have published the unverified photo and news about the death of al-Baghdadi by US airstrikes. IraqiNews.com has been unable to verify the photo and claim that al-Baghdadi was killed.

    Russia's military says it may have killed IS leader; West, Iraq skeptica

    Sat Jun 17, 2017


    Moscow said on Friday its forces may have killed IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in an air strike in Syria last month, but Washington said it could not corroborate the death and Western and Iraqi officials were skeptical.

    The secretive Islamic State leader has frequently been reported killed or wounded since he declared a caliphate to rule over all Muslims from a mosque in Mosul in 2014, after leading his fighters on a sweep through northern Iraq.

    If the report does prove true, it would be one of the biggest blows yet to Islamic State, which is trying to defend its shrinking territory against an array of forces backed by regional and global powers in both Syria and Iraq.

    But in the absence of independent confirmation, some U.S. officials said U.S. agencies were skeptical of the report. Several Iraqi security officials said Iraq was doubtful as well.

    "His death has been reported so often that you have to be cautious till a formal Daesh statement comes," a European security official said, using an Arabic acronym for the group.

    U.S. Navy Captain Jeff Davis, a Pentagon spokesman, said: "We have no information to corroborate those reports."

    A senior Trump administration official noted “a number of infirmities” in the reports, which have given U.S. officials reason to question their accuracy.

    “Some of those infirmities suggested that this happened at the end of May and that there were upwards of 300 or more soldiers killed in that strike,” said the official, who asked not to be identified.

    “A strike of that size and that claim that would have happened that long ago without any knowledge is something that made me curious,” the official added.

    The Russian Defence Ministry said on its Facebook page that it was checking information that Baghdadi was killed in the strike on the outskirts of Raqqa in Syria, launched after Russia received intelligence about a meeting of Islamic State leaders.

    "On May 28, after drones were used to confirm the information on the place and time of the meeting of IS leaders, between 00:35 and 00:45, Russian air forces launched a strike on the command point where the leaders were located," the statement said.

    "According to the information which is now being checked via various channels, also present at the meeting was Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who was eliminated as a result of the strike," the ministry said.
