Al Baghdadi is no James Mattis. Running off and hiding is no way to instill confidence in your troops.

“ISIS’s Baghdadi has ‘fled Mosul and left his fighters to die’”

An Iraqi counter-terror official has told Al Arabiya.net that ISIS chief Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has fled Mosul and abandoned his soldiers, “leaving them to die.”

General Maan al-Saadi said Baghdadi has fled to an unknown location and could be plotting further international attacks.”
