A Syrian Kurd undercover agent took a pair of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s underwear for DNA identification ahead of the US raid that killed the jihadist leader, a Kurdish official said Monday.
Polat Can, a senior adviser to the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), published details of the intelligence work that led to the US raid in which the founder of the Islamic State group was killed.
“Al-Baghdadi changed his places of residence very often,” Polat Can said, adding that the asset managed to reach the house where the IS chief was believed to be hiding.
“Our own source, who had been able to reach al-Baghdadi, brought al-Baghdadi’s underwear to conduct a DNA test and make sure (100%) that the person in question was al-Baghdadi himself,” the adviser wrote on Twitter.
How nice to know that it was “skid marks” that put the skids under the odious al-Baghdadi. I hope the undercover agent in question wore gloves. Judging by President Trump’s remarks that the terror leader whimpered and cried before he blew himself up, it’s safe to assume that any underpants he was wearing were also somewhat soiled. Also, Al-Baghdadi’s habitat was levelled, and as the Arabs say, “the house of a tyrant is a ruin”. In his case, literally.
