Well, although I want Al-Baghdadi captured, I would be happier if it was John Brennan, which should tell you where my mind set is.

If it is Al-Baghdadi, I hope he is flown back to DC and dragged in chains to the front steps of the White House on national TV, surrounded by the Special Forces guys who got him.

This is a sweet story, to calm us down while we are waiting.

GUS

No, that is NOT WHO WE ARE!!!!

He should be "read his rights" MIRANDA. Then he should be taken to BARBARA STREISANDS home and have himself INPALED by her HEELS.

That's the "rights" they want to give our PRESIDENT.

Other guesses besides Al-Baghdadi:

China trade deal signed
We bought Greenland
Several arrests on the Russia hoax

Everyone is now griping they won't be able to go to bed until he tells us. LOL!

Capn', this episode in American history, like every episode in Modern history, will be written by the VICTORS. That statement by ME, indicates, that WE are (as you know) are currently IN A WAR.

Lots of skepticism that it’s Baghdadi.

There is a video of a helicopter raid, but it’s alleged location is an area where it makes no sense for Baghdadi to be.

Could be huras al deen, maybe it is zawahiri

MissM, that win was epic.

Two weeks in a row were the Hoosiers won on the road where they could have folded.

Well, by Hoosier football standards it's epic anyway.

Watched it with a bunch of fellow Hoosier fans and it was pretty enjoyable.

The ND game has taken a bit of my joy away though.

DrJ, I'm Catholic, from Indiana and have a very Irish surname.

As a kid, we watched every ND game due to my Dan's allegiance. We were allowed to root against ND only when they played Army as my Dad was a lifer.

I didn't know I.U. even played football till about the age of 11 when a neighbor kid wasn't available for a wiffle ball game because his dad was taking him to an I.U. game.

Hoosiers are my team these days but, The Irish remain close to my heart.

https://news.usni.org/2019/10/25/vcno-burke-navy-needs-new-readiness-model-for-new-era-of-conflict

This sucks. Delayed maintenance due to sequestration, continuing resolutions and lack of investment in shipyards.

"Of the 11 carriers, just two are deployed today: USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72), which has been deployed for seven months already and will remain on station until a replacement can relieve it, Burke said, and USS Ronald Reagan (CVN-76), which is the forward-deployed carrier in Japan."

Some of the carriers are in or scheduled for regular "wear and tear" maintenance. That cycle will be for an extended period for each as problems grew from prior skimpy maintenance. Two or three are, or need to undergo, a half-life refueling.

Then there's the USN Ford. With 3 out of 11 armament elevators working and the Navy is apparently wary about shock-testing it. Because they might break something and need to make more repairs.

I realize this is the most advanced carrier we have ever built with multiple new untested technologies, but c'mon.

jim nj

https://www.navytimes.com/news/your-navy/2019/10/25/pentagon-official-wants-to-keep-shaking-up-the-navy-marines/

Well at least somebody seems to understand. Get this:
"

Modly’s latest readiness snapshot for the Navy and Marine Corps came through an external audit by Ernst and Young. While the sea service maintains a 99.9 percent accuracy of its audits on individual warships, it suffered from a lack of information on its shore-based facilities, he said.

He disclosed that the audit team found a warehouse in Jacksonville, Florida, last year that contained more than $126 million in F-14 Tomcat, P-3 Orion and P-8 Poseidon parts.

“Not only did we not know that the parts existed, we didn’t even know the warehouse existed,” he said."

Can you imagine that?

Dozens of news stories proclaim the death of Abu Bakr. Most cite other sources but look at this one:

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-mideast-crisis-baghdadi-iran/iran-was-informed-of-is-leader-baghdadis-death-iranian-officials-tell-reuters-idUSKBN1X6055

Iran has confirmation? The Syrians told them.

https://taskandpurpose.com/abu-bakr-al-baghdadi-killed

"Officials are reportedly still working to confirm that the high value ISIS target was indeed al-Baghdadi, who is believed to have detonated a suicide vest during the raid, killing himself, multiple sources told Defense One."

I guess we will get clarification at 9 AM.

jim nj

I wonder if we coordinated with the Russians who control that airspace.

Maybe not the target, just a hey we've got some helicopters in the area, please don't shoot at them.

I also wonder if they got anyone else or any actionable intelligence.

This could be more fun than Halloween.

We’ve got clarification. He’s dead.

I'm trying to follow the PG&E blackout situation.

Now as I understand this, PG&E tried to minimize the area subjected to a loss of power. Which meant it switched off lower power distribution lines, but kept up its high-power transmission lines so as to provide power to other unaffected areas.

The Kincade fire occurred at about the same time as one of those high-power lines faulted.

The power line caused the fire or the fire took out the transmission line.

If the former, PG&E in an attempt to mitigate against more people losing power was at fault. Yet previously it was faulted for taking down too many customers for not a good enough reason. How can a utility survive in such an environment?

Damned if it does; damned if it doesn't.

Good morning!

Woke at 5:15 and debated on whether to go back to sleep, but decided that I risked hearing the BIG NEWS at 9:00.

My hope is that if Al-Baghdadi did explode himself, there is definite proof of his identity AND that they didn't have real operational security and there is proof of communication with certain Americans , who can be arrested immediately.

hoyden

Clarice cuts to the heart of the news. News that I have not seen reported locally. I appreciate the link to Codavilla in The Tablet but don't have the focus to Read The Whole Thing. I know there's good stuff in it but I want the Executive Summary in lieu of thousands of words.
