I posted that based on what my wife told me when I woke up: "Hey, the CIA got Bagdadi in a drone strike." I went right to the computer to get in a cross-thread ref.

Brother (not faulting you for the correction) but it was my job for the better part of two decades, from the start of the Gulf War, through OIF and OEF, to hang around SOCOM and CENTCOM, writing about doctrinal missions and responsibilities of componants, sub-comands, compartmented elements, TTP, gear, weapons, history, aircraft, technology, comm, the larger integrated battle space, all that good shit...so I might look dumb and post dumb, I have at least a faint idea of what you hard chargers are doing out there...and sort of where you're doing it. ;-)
I know your history, I respect your experience more than you know, and enjoy your strangely-hip posts for being a crusty old vet... and because of these things I will continue to bust your balls for the remainder of our time on SS. Raise hell praise Dale heil Florida.

Good piece that dissects the gnashing of teeth in the media over the latest story non-story.

1) Positive News Coverage Hurts Media Efforts To Destroy Trump
2) ISIS Founder’s Death Complicates Media’s Syria Narrative
3) Trump Foreign Policy Successes Undermine Media Impeachment Drive


Here Are The Real Reasons Media Lost Their Minds When Baghdadi Died

Yep...before long his image will be replacing the "Che" shirts. People can be pathetic creatures when they want to be....
What even is the big deal over the Che Guevara shirts, I thought I remembered hearing he wasn't the greatest person around to be idolizing

Do some reading up on him. See if you can figure out why a lot of people your age are wearing his shirts. In my opinion, most don't know why they are wearing them except for the fact they think it's cool to do so. Let this be a learning experience for you and then you will be able to know why we don't really care for good ole' Che.
