Colonel Steven Warren, Operation Inherent Resolve spokesperson, spoke by video from Baghdad to brief reporters at the Pentagon on U.S. military operations against ISIL.* He showed maps and unclassified silent video of drone strikes. The briefing focused on the targeted strike against the militant known as “Jihadi John.” Colonel Warren told the reporters that the Pentagon was “reasonably certain” they killed the target, but it was still to early to confirm it. He characterized “Jihad John” as barbaric but a celebrity whose death would be a significant blow to ISIL’s prestige.
