(The Washington Times) House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday demanded a briefing on the U.S. military strike that killed Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi a raid in which President Trump said Congress leaders were intentionally left out of the loop. The House must be briefed on this raid which the Russians but not top Congressional Leadership were notified of in advance and on the Administrations overall strategy in the region" she said in a statement. Our military and allies deserve strong smart and strategic leadership from Washington." In announcing the major takedown in the fight against the Islamic State or ISIS Mr. Trump singled out Mrs. Pelosi when saying congressional leaders couldnt be trusted in the planning of the attack in Syria. Washington is a leaking machine" the president said during the announcement earlier Sunday from the White House. Mrs. Pelosi commended the U.S. military for carrying out the raid but did not mention Mr. Trump who made killing al-Baghdadi a priority and gave the order for the strike.
