Cole Statement on Successful Anti-ISIS Operation in Syria
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement after President Donald Trump announced the successful U.S. operation that resulted in the death of ISIS terrorist leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
“I am pleased to hear that our brave U.S. special forces and members of our intelligence community were successful in carrying out a bold mission to locate and take out ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. We should all be proud of and grateful for their courage and skill in confronting evil and protecting the free world. While the fight to keep America safe around the world requires constant attention, surely we can all rest easier today knowing one of the worst perpetrators of terror has lost his influence. I applaud President Trump for his leadership that helped make this key victory possible in the global war on terror.”
