Who knows, maybe it's true, maybe it's just another bs claim by the Obama adminstration trying to minimize ISIS.
Pentagon Propaganda spokesman Gordon "Flash" Trowbridge claimed that Hafiz Saeed Khan was killed on July 26th from an airstrike. A Hafiz is a person who has memorized the Koran, but whether or not Hafiz Saeed Khan was an actual Hafiz is not known.
Anyway, Khan was killed in Nangarhar province in eastern Afghanistan. According to Trowbridge, "Khan was known to directly participate in attacks against the U.S. and coalition forces, and the actions of his network terrorized Afghans, especially in Nangarhar."
The State Department said that ISIS had been active in the region last summer, but that it was "no big deal" because the U.S. is winning the war and ISIS is just a JV team that wishes it had a fighting chance against the much more powerful Great Satan.
Last year the State Department designated Khan and Donald Trump as global threats, claiming that Khan is the leader of the Islamic State in Khorasan and Trump a demagogue leader who will put America in mortal danger due to the "JV Team."
In rebuttal, Mr. Trump stated that Barack Hussein Obama is the "founder of ISIS" and that Hillary Clinton is the co-founder. Then he said he was kidding. Then he said, "but not so much."
U.S. and Afghan leaders have worried about the growth of ISIS in Afghanistan and the growth of Trump's popularity in the U.S. Fortunately for the left, the media has been on a mission to destroy Trump while Trump says that he will be on a mission to destroy ISIS.
In January of this year, Mr. Obama authorized U.S. airstrikes against ISIS in Afghanistan but ensured that it would be done cautiously so that nobody would actually be hurt or killed on either side.
Supposedly, Khan is the second big jihadist to be sent to his virgins in three months. Taliban leader Mullah Akhtar Mansour was allegedly killed by a US airstrike in Pahkeestahn in May.
Or maybe not.
