UM Professor Mehrdad Kia on Death of Isis Leader
University of Montana History Professor Mehrdad Kia spoke with KGVO News on Sunday and provided his perspective on the death on Saturday of Isis leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
Kia described how American special forces brought about his death, first by attacking the compound where he was hiding and forcing him into an underground bunker with no way of escape.
Kia praised the American special forces troops that brought about al-Baghdadi’s death, after DNA confirmed his identity.
Kia said he was still deeply concerned and disappointed in President Trump’s decision to remove American forces in the area.
