Stable Genius Meets Austere Religious Scholar

The Washington Post described Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as an “Austere Religious Scholar” in one much mocked headline. So they changed it. Several times.

Anyway it looks like the Very Stable Genius got the best of the Austere Religious Scholar.

Operation Kayla Mueller

Kayla Mueller grew up in Prescott, Arizona as a Christian committed to helping others. So she traveled the world doing just that. She landed in southern Turkey working with the Danish Refugee Council helping Syrian refugees. But in 2013 she made an unexpected visit to a Doctors Without Borders hospital in Aleppo, Syria.

Aleppo

Aleppo was ground zero in a war involving the Syrian government, Syrian rebels, Kurds, Russians, ISIS and Iraq. And it was no place for an idealistic 26 year old American woman. So the doctors sent Kayla back over the border. But, on the way, ISIS kidnapped her.

Eventually the self-proclaimed caliph, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi “married” Kayla. Then the religious scholar proceeded to rape and torture her.

Her parents learned of Kayla’s death in 2015.

U.S. Special Forces hunted down Baghdadi and he paid for his brutality with his life. The U.S. Joint Chief of Staff named the operation in honor of Kayla.

Trump is pulling out of Syria. But on Sunday U.S. Special Forces doubled back to Isis leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s Syrian compound. The operation was years in the making. And now the austere religious scholar ┬áis al-Baghdead.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler thought it would be a good idea to have John Dean testify about Watergate. And John Dean was happy to oblige. After all, he may be a convicted felon but he’s no chicken – or Rosemary Woods

But he did say that Russiagate was just like Watergate, only worse.

However, unfortunately for Chairman Nadler, the media spent most of the day covering a helicopter crash in New York City.

House Judiciary Committee One, Barr None

The House Judiciary Committee voted to hold Attorney General Barr in contempt of Congress. Chairman Jerry Nadler demands that Barr turn over a complete unreacted copy of the Mueller report on collusion with Russia. But Nadler knows Barr can’t do that because the report contains grand jury testimony. And that’s illegal. Barr has made a minimally redacted version available to certain members of Congress. But so far no Democrats have bothered to take a look.
