As the band formerly known as the guys in charge of Raqqa, Syria, continues to try and make a comeback, footage has been released of their latest leader in Iraq getting a drone strike on his house before he's arrested.
In 2014 the Iraqi government fell into a power vacuum that allowed a certain group of extremists to rise to power in their country. As a result, they saw four additional years of open warfare inside of their own country as the group powered through their military and took control of a large swath of land in Northern Iraq and Syria. Today, they are taking no chance with this group whatsoever, and for good reason. They don't want that particular band getting back together again.
By now, it's obvious to our readers who I'm talking about. I'm not allowed to type the name of the organization because it'll immediately get us a slap on the wrist across all of our off-site social media platforms, but if you know you know and if you don't know just go ahead and google search who was in control of Raqqa, Syria in 2015.
The footage above was recorded by the Iraqi Counter-Terror unit on June 8, 2022. It comes out of the al-Anbar province of Iraq and shows the apprehension of an Austere Religious Scholar who was running the show in the name of his predecessor. Yes, the same predecessor that the Washington Post called an Austere Religious Scholar after a Delta Force unit let a fur missile shred him during this raid.
Hold up, my bad. Got off topic. Russia bad. Ukraine good. We have always been at war with Eurasia. Eastasia is our friend. War is peace, freedom is slavery, and ignorance is strength. There is no threat to the free world in the Middle East.
