Trump leaves key Democrats in dark about Baghdadi raid to avoid leaks

President Donald Trump admitted on Sunday the White House did not inform some key Democrats, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, about the raid that resulted in the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi for fear of information leaks that could have compromised the mission. Pelosi issued a statement criticizing Trump for not informing leaders in Congress beforehand.

Amazing. Amidst all this BS, POTUS does not trust the governing body of whiners with sensitive information because the information leaks are so rampant. This behavior is indicative of a sports team that either doesn't play by the rules of the game or any rules at all and show bad sportsmanship. Just glad to see the ones left out can agree it was for the best in the end and our current POTUS is still doing his job.

Pelosi shut-out is funny but not related to the rest of the linked articles.

a) Both are Sunni terrorist orgs with similar supremacist ideologies, slightly different methods, b) same end-goal (worldwide caliphate), same list of enemies, c) currently both are diminished to a shadow of former selves. Expect consolidation and infighting on top.

Brandon, did you bother to even read your wiki article? Saudi Arabia didn't finance Al Qaeda. Some Saudi business men did. That's a slight difference. But, then the finer points of facts never seen to bother you much. Do I trust the Saudi government? Not much. But the whole enemy of my enemy thing.
