Hard to believe - Obama actually did something (minimally) significant in Iraq against DAISH/ISIS. Supporting Kurdish forces (tsk, tsk, Turkey won't like that) in rescuing prisoners about to be executed. Reported that 5 or 6 prisoners were taken. My question is why were prisoners taken? Did we bother to take combatant prisoners when we raided Bin Laden's compound? DAiSH/ISIS are genocidal murderers beyond the pale, and every last one of them should be exterminated like the vermin they are. Hopefully the Kurds (it was officially a Kurdish raid) will take care of them.
