Sen. Burr Statement on Raid Against ISIS Leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr (R-NC) released the following statement on the U.S. raid against ISIS founder and leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi:

“The U.S. raid against Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi marks an important milestone in the campaign against remaining ISIS leadership. The world is safer without al-Baghdadi in it. ISIS fighters should take note that their leader died in a hole, miles away from them, in what he thought was a safe haven. The message is clear. There is no safe haven.”
