    So America is leaving Iraq, but some Americans will stay to keep manipulating that country so they maintain some anti Iran presence there....

    What a nothing story.

    Essentially they are pulling back troops on the ground that could be used as targets by the enemy, but are maintaining a presence so they can keep killing people and maintaining conflict in the region...

    They need some Igla launchers to attach to those thermal cameras to deal with those helicopters while they are carrying those ISIS fighters... I am sure the US wont mind as it is all part of the war on terror... that was Americas idea in the first place.

    I would imagine that those transport helicopters would have had a serious Apache escort. I suspect that a suicide attack would not have made sense.

    Sami Jasim al-Jaburi (pictured), also the suspected former deputy to the late IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, was arrested by intelligence services

    Iraq has captured the alleged finance chief and second in command of the Islamic State group, for whom the US had offered a $5 million bounty.

    Sami Jasim al-Jaburi, the suspected former deputy to the late IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, was arrested by intelligence services 'outside the borders' of Iraq, Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhemi announced on Monday.

    He did not specify the location, but Kadhemi said on Twitter Jaburi was captured in a 'complex external operation'.

    'While our [Iraqi security forces] heroes focused on securing the elections, their [Iraqi national intelligence services] colleagues were conducting a complex external operation to capture Sami Jasim,' al-Kadhemi wrote.

    He did not offer further details of the operation, but described it as 'one of the most difficult' cross border intelligence operations ever conducted by Iraqi forces.
