As many of you know, I was able to serve many years as part of US special forces, primarily in the missions that went after terrorists. I retired from the mission in 2015. This Saturday, a highly successful mission was carried out that killed the ISIS senior commander Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. This is a column I wrote that discussed the mission, and the rise and fall of ISIS, particularly Abu Bakr.
