Hey stop reporting on the terrorists, John Kerry said so. Oh, what a real shame! Abu Muhammad al-Adnani won’t have 3 square meals a day, prayer time, and cable TV at GITMO! What’s even more tragic is that he wasn’t read his rights before he got smoked! You have the right to remain silent… really silent!
The No. 2 man in ISIS, who was at the top of the U.S. kill list, is dead, according to a media arm of the terrorist organization.
The circumstances of Abu Muhammad al-Adnani’s death in Aleppo, Syria, have not been confirmed. Officials in Washington — who had put out a $5 million reward for al-Adnani — had no immediate comment.
The 37-year-old, who was ISIS’ director of external operations and main spokesman, is best known for issuing an edict for lone wolves to kill Westerners in September 2014.
“If you can kill a disbelieving American or European — especially the spiteful and filthy French — or an Australian, or a Canadian, or any other disbeliever from the disbelievers waging war, including the citizens of the countries that entered into a coalition against the Islamic State, then rely upon Allah, and kill him in any manner or way however it may be,” he said.
“Smash his head with a rock, or slaughter him with a knife, or run him over with your car, or throw him down from a high place, or choke him, or poison him.”
As NBC News reported in December, al-Adnani was the No. 1 name on the U.S. list of ISIS leaders it wanted to kill.
“Adnani has been the main voice behind issuing ISIS threats to the West,” Laith al-Khouri of Flashpoint Intelligence, an NBC counterterrorism analyst, said at the time. “He is so admired and glorified by jihadists worldwide that he stands as a primary point of recruitment.”
