October 27, 2019

Washington D.C. - U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) issued the following statement on the U.S. raid against ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi:

"Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi was a coward who killed thousands of defenseless men, women, and children. His death makes the world a safer place for Americans and our allies. The precision with which the U.S. intelligence community and special forces identified and then neutralized Al-Baghdadi is another illustration of the fact that our military is the one of the greatest forces for good in the world.

"The fight against ISIS will continue until this terrorist group is eliminated. Until this happens we must remain vigilant of the threat ISIS poses."
