al-Baghdadi's Death Conservatively Deemed “90% certain” by US! JKI Exclusive!
JKI can now report, thanks to recently obtained information, that al-Baghadi's Brinks armored car was struck by a brace of 500-pound JDAMs, timed so that the blast from the second reinforced the blast from the first. JKI was told such a strike is more damaging than a single weapon of the same weight. Makes perfect sense. Even if the first bomb detonation does not tear apart the target, it will stress the target's structure severely, setting it up for the second blow to finish it off. The armored Mercedes Benz limousines, much softer targets than the Brinks armored truck, each got a single 500-pound JDAM laser-guided bomb. Both were destroyed. The US government, in light of continuing and even more disorganized chatter than before, now assesses the likelihood of al-Baghdadi's death at 92%. As noted before, the observed direct hits on the strike video from the moonlit night attack Saturday night, November 8, 2014 effectively guarantee al-Baghdadi's death, a 500-pound JDAM direct hit being unsurvivable, let alone two.
al-Baghdadi, formally, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, founder of ISIS, its spiritual leader and self-appointed head of the hotly disputed IS, Islamic State aka the Caliphate, is conservatively assessed by the US as 90% certain to be dead, following a weekend US Navy airstrike, per JKI's Grade One US military-intelligence sources who are privy to the airstrike particulars, which are highly specific. According to them, excellent intelligence allowed 3 x F/A-18 Super Hornet aircraft (2 x FA-18E/F strike and 1 x EA-18G Growler electronic warfare plane), of CVW-17 (Carrier Air Wing 17) , which operates from the Nimitz-class carrier USS Carl Vinson (CVN-70) carrier strike group in the Indian Ocean, to catch and destroy al-Baghdadi's 11-vehicle convoy on the road en route to a key meeting in Al-Qa'im, a town in de jure Iraq near the Syrian border. This article mentions Al-Qa'im as the area in which the supposed wounding took place, and JKI was informed that al-Baghdadi and his people were hit “en route to a meeting in Al-Qa'im near the Syrian border.” JKI had the strike details earlier today (Monday, November 10,2014), but was unable to post until now.
The convoy was built around a Brinks armored car (the kind that picks up money from banks), in which al-Baghdadi rode, and two armored Mercedes Benz limousines, with the remainder consisting of unarmored/very lightly protected technicals. According to sources, ground fire was received, but there were no hits on the attacking planes. Those who have seen the strike imagery report al-Baghdadi's armored ride of choice took a direct hit from a 500-pound laser-guided JDAM and was “blown to flaming bits.” Armor that will stop an RPG is useless against a 500-pound bomb. Here is a 2000-pound JDAM vs a proper tank, an M60. Do not be fooled into believing that 4 x as heavy a bomb is 4 x as powerful, for doubling the blast requires cubing the weight of explosives.
The other VIP vehicles received similar treatment, and the entire convoy was wiped out, “left in flames,” according to insider sources. Contrast this information vs the mainstream sources, such as the BBC, which are wondering whether al-Baghdadi was wounded. RT's sources are closer to the mark, having reported not only that he was wounded, but critically so. He was. Fatally. Together with ISIS leaders traveling with him. Evidence? Not only was there the shattering strike imagery, but ISIS chatter heard afterwards was likened to “acting like chickens with their heads cut off,” according to JKI's highly sensitive sources.
