The Russian Federation's military said on Sunday that it had "valid doubts" about whether ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was killed in the US raid.

Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi reportedly received a proper burial at sea following his suicide during a USA military raid in northern Syria Saturday evening, two US defense officials said according to CNN.

In a follow-up tweet, however, Souza said he wasn't claiming the photo of Trump and his advisers was staged.

Trump said that al-Baghdadi died after USA troops forced him into a dead-end tunnel at the compound, "whimpering and crying and screaming all the way". Milley said the animal is recovering and will return to duty with its handler.

But Morell said during a "Face the Nation" interview that he didn't care for Trump's language.

President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, along with with members of the national security team, receive an update on the mission against Osama bin Laden in the Situation Room of the White House in Washington. 'He died like a dog, he died like a coward'.

O'Neill appeared to agree with Trump's decision not to inform Schiff ahead of Saturday night's successful raid.

The name and other details about the dog remain top secret.

HuffPost asked elsewhere in an article also based entirely on Souza's groundless tweet, "Was Trump's Al-Baghdadi Raid Situation Room Picture Staged?" This means there's no evidence the photo was staged - it was taken while the raid was still in progress.

On Sunday, Trump went on air to announce that the USA forces have eradicated al-Baghdadi in "a daring night-time raid" in northwest Syria, involving particular forces and aviation belongings. They pointed to his saying that the USA knew of al-Baghdadi's whereabouts via technology, and also knew of the underground tunnels at his compound, which suggests the US has infrared abilities to locate caves and tunnels...

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark Milley said, during a media address at the Pentagon, that Baghdadi's remains were "disposed of appropriately" in accordance with the United States standard operating procedure and the law of armed conflict.

"Presidential vs. Non-Presidential / Class vs. Class-less / Poised vs. Doofus", said one Twitter user, describing the difference between the two speches.

The dog didn't technically kill bin Laden, but a Belgian Malinois named Cairo, along with a translator and four Navy SEALs secured the perimeter of the al-Qaida leader's compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

A day earlier, President Trump had mentioned when the American troops landed in eight helicopters together with specifically skilled canines, in addition they had with them a robotic, the primary of its form, to go after the ISIS chief contained in the tunnel.
