Press TV interview with Kevin Barrett, VT Editor
The Daesh leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, whom US President Donald Trump claimed had been killed, was in fact a US or an Israeli agent, says an American scholar.
Trump announced Baghdadi’s death in a military raid by US forces in northwest Syria in an address on Sunday morning.
Donald Trump announced the death of the Daesh head and one of the most wanted people on earth during what he called a dangerous and daring operation.
Trump’s announcement and the photos that followed the announcement were a farce, according to Kevin Barrett, an author, journalist and radio host with a Ph.D in Islamic and Arabic Studies.
“Trump’s announcement of Baghdadi’s killing was full of hilarious lines,” Barrett told Press TV in an interview on Monday, describing the announcement as a “comedy” that made people “helplessly laugh’, meant to entertain the Americans and give them a sense of gratification.
The truth is that Baghdadi ”is in fact a US or Israeli agent,” Barrett noted, adding,“some reports claim that there is a specific Israeli individual who has played this role.”
Meantime, Trump said on Monday that he was considering releasing selected sections of the video showing the US military raid that led to the death of Baghdadi over the weekend.
“We’re thinking about it. We may,” Trump told reporters when he was asked about the prospect of releasing the footage of the raid.
“We may take certain parts of it and release it, yes,” he said.
A United Nations spokesman says the world body cannot verify the US’ statement on the death of Daesh leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
Trump said he watched much of the raid in the Situation Room, likening it to “watching a movie.”
Trump described Baghdadi’s last moments as such, “whimpering and crying and screaming all the way.”
Barrett likened the announcements regarding Baghdadi’s death to the announcement of killing of former al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.
As with bin Laden, Baghdadi’s remains were allegedly dumped into the sea.
The US military took what was left of Baghdadi’s body and dumped it at a secret location at sea, just like what they did to former al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden’s body, American officials claim.
Barrett said both the staged killings were fake.
“The people staging these fake events don’t even seem to have the slightest interest in making them at all plausible,” Barrett concluded.
United Nations spokesman for the UN Secretary General, Farhan Haq, said in a press briefing on Monday that the international body had “taken note of the announcement by the President of the United States on the death of Abu Bakr al‑Baghdadi, the leader of the UN‑designated terrorist group Daesh.”
However, he said the UN “cannot personally verify the accuracy of this.”

The Israel controlled U.S. Government views the American Public as a bunch of stupid, ignorant fools, brainwashed by the lying Israeli media who will believe any lie put to their ignorant brains. Just observe how Americans did not utter a peep when the Israeli bribed whores in Congress changed the Constitution, illegally, with laws, not a proper Constitutional Amendment, following the fake 9/11/01 attack in NY. This country is gone folks. These American fools today took the easiest courses in high school and college. They hated the only courses which develop brain function, higher mathematics and physics and a few others and avoided them like the plague. The Founders were mostly genius level intelligence and had the guts to back it up. America is on her death bed now as the Israeli thugs have their wishes granted to them by American total idiots and fools brainwashed by sex and lies on the TELE. Trump is an Israeli puppet and whore from New York, sometimes spelled with a J. Bigamy and Polygamy are next up on the evil agenda of the Israeli bribed whores in Congress. American husbands will be able to ponder how many wives to screw every evening until dawn when they will be so depleted they won’t be able to even think of locking and loading a gun to blow off the roving gangs of looters arriving at their homes.
Not even worth to comment on the same BS Script like before. In Hollywood I am sure, the scriptwriter would be fired on the spot. Time to change the crew.
