Breaking news from CNN:
“Jihadi John,” whom Western officials have identified as Mohammed Emwazi, has appeared in a series of brutal execution videos, taunting Western leaders in a British accent.
It was not immediately clear whether the strike was successful. But a senior U.S. official said authorities are confident that the strike killed Emwazi, adding that the U.S. announced the strike because of Emwazi’s notoriety.
Hopefully it’s true. I’m certainly not a hawk and I think it’s wise to be skeptical of US intervention in the Middle East at this point. Still, bad news for ISIS is good news.
