Hero: Injured military dog cornered ISIS leader in tunnel

A K-9 military dog played a major role in the Special Ops raid and takedown of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in Syria’s northwestern Idlib province last Saturday evening, Oct. 26, 2019.

The dog is also the only soldier wounded in the raid.

Russ Read reports for the Washington Examiner:

The dog, whose name and breed remain unknown, chased Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi into a tunnel and cornered him. With no place to go, the terrorist leader blew himself up along with three of his children, who he was using as human shields. The dog’s injuries highlighted the importance of military working dogs in special operations. Often, they will enter the danger zone with a camera on their backs before the humans do so.

“The dog is a war veteran and a valued member of the team,” a currently serving soldier assigned to Delta Force told the Washington Examiner. The soldier did not provide details, pending permission from the dog’s handler and chain of command. Everyone involved in the mission is being debriefed and is out of communication for the time being, the soldier said. Within the community, he says, “The injury to the dog is an injury to one of us. These dogs are a special breed of courageous.”

In a tweet on October 28, President Trump declassified an image of the hero dog.

Newsweek reports that “Multiple Defense Department sources confirmed to Newsweek on Monday that the dog’s name is Conan,” and that U.S. Army General Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told reporters at a Pentagon briefing Monday that the dog was “slightly wounded and fully recovering.”

This was confirmed by Deputy National Security Adviser Victoria Coates. Coates announced on Hugh Hewitt’s radio program yesterday that hero dog Conan will recover.

Daily Wire has another pic of Conan, a male Belgian Malinois:

It’s a relief to know Conan wasn’t badly injured and will recover. I hope Pres. Trump will stop equating evil humans with dogs……. for example, he said something to the tune of, “he died like a dog”, referring to Baghdadi.

Gee call me cynical but the whole story of the “raid” is BS, smells like 0 dark 30…

How many times has John Songbird Mcstain’s BBF died???

There are many more stories of his death, just like Osmas. But they had his DNA…

I don’t know what to believe anymore. Now They say Epstein was murdered, at first he committed suicide, how can we believe anything we are told?

General rule of thumb, do not take the word of known liars. That would be anyone in “public office” or one that is part of the J media. Pretty much everyone

Another general rule of thumb
Don’t give much credence to people that use Jews and the boggyman for all the earths ills.

Ok, so lets go with the Jedo freemason allegiance. Of course you could refute the fact the media are 99% J controlled, but you cannot.

My first thought all so. Sounds way to much like the raid that killed bin laden that the fraud obama, (and ding bat hillary)made so much ‘too do’ over, when most of us believed laden was all ready long dead. Then when I heard the claim bagdadi, or what ever, was collected and given a muslim buried at sea ceremony,….??????

It is unwise to release any information about this brave K9 soldier BECAUSE the enemy will then be able to find out who his handler is and put him in danger. As you know, in such cases, “loose lips sink ships.”

I have friends that work K9’s. The dogs are amazing! The dog is always 1 rank above the handler which is an old tradition.

President Trump tweeted out this photoshop:

Now the media are complaining because Trump tweeted out a “doctored” photo. Liberals are joyless…

The left can’t meme…which is why they want to ban them, or allow meme generators to be sued.
