Considering the use of a self-detonating vest, let’s cut back on the Adderall, and hold my beer.
If the Baghdadi rumor is true, I guarantee you that at his press conference Trump will:
1) Say "I got him" or "I killed him"
2) Say "Obama couldn't get him, but I did"
I'd also put the odds of "I think I could have gone in with the SEALS, to tell you the truth" at 60%

When I say I lost count of how many times Baghdadi has been reported dead, I am not even joking. Here is his wikipedia entry for death and maiming reports: pic.twitter.com/peDE5msv70

If he has killed Baghdadi and is announcing it Sunday morning, it’ll probably be the first time in a long time that he’ll be up early on a Sunday morning to play at being president rather than just play golf. https://t.co/Nxn24YMSoY

Two more questions: Who is the new leader of ISIS? (No doubt Baghdadi has already picked a deputy and an internal plan is likely already in full swing to replace him).
Also, should we be worried now? Western intelligence agencies should be on high alert for retaliatory attacks.
