  • Is the threat from ISIS really more significant because of COVID-19?

    In ISIS s weekly publication, al Naba, the group called for the mujahideen to carry out strikes against the West during the pandemic.

    Both al Qaeda and ISIS also have claimed that COVID 19 is God s retribution for the West s decadence.

    In al Qaeda s propaganda arm, As Sahab, the group pronounced that COVID 19 has exposed the West s brittleness and the coronavirus is God s smallest soldier.

    ISIS and al Qaeda s verbal banter notwithstanding, can these groups realistically cash in on the COVID 19 crisis, or are their missives nothing more than empty threats?.

    Eddie Gallagher, Navy SEAL acquitted of stabbing wounded ISIS prisoner to death, tells his story

    Navy SEAL says he didn''t stab ISIS prisoner The trial of Navy SEAL Edward Gallagher was a riveting courtroom drama in which a decorated war fighter with four combat tours faced life in prison for crimes prosecutors said he committed on the battlefield.

    When President Trump used his powers as commander in chief to intervene, it mushroomed into a full blown political controversy.

    Gallagher was acquitted of the murder charge last July, but he never took the stand and has never publicly answered questions about what happened on the day he was accused of stabbing a wounded ISIS prisoner to death.

    Until tonight.

    We warn you it''s a story of combat at its ugliest and military justice at its worst.Gallagher acknowledges that people either love him as an American hero or despise him as a war criminal.

    He was charged with the premeditated murder of an ISIS prisoner in Iraq.
