U.S. Delta Force commandos killed Islamic State group leader Abu Sayyaf and about 12 fighters during a raid in eastern Syria on May 16.
Pentagon officials said U.S. forces also captured Sayyaf's wife, Umm Sayyaf, and freed an 18-year-old woman who they say was being kept as a slave, noted The New York Times.
U.S. Defense Secretary Ashton Carter claimed Sayyaf was involved in Islamic State group's military planning and its “illicit oil, gas and financial operations" that raise money for the terrorist group.
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said in January that the U.S. and its international coalition had killed thousands of Islamic State group fighters and 50 percent of its commanders, noted CBS News.
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a Republican, painted a completely different picture on May 16, the same day Sayyaf and his fellow Islamic State group members were killed.
Jindal lectured President Barack Obama to hunt down and kill terrorists during a speech at the Iowa National Security Action Summit on May 16, reports RightWingWatch.org (video below).
Jindal lamented how President Obama mentioned the Crusades at a prayer breakfast in February. At the time, Obama was recalling how bad deeds have historically been committed in the name of religion, including Christianity (Crusades, slavery, Jim Crow), of which he is a follower, noted The Washington Post.
"I've got a deal for our commander in chief, if he will do his job, hunt down, kill these terrorists and protect us from radical Islamic terrorism, I will volunteer to look out for those medieval Christians in case they come back and pose a threat to the United States," Jindal said.
Jindal made no mention that most terrorist attacks in the U.S. are carried out by white supremacists, right-wing militia groups and Christian extremists, noted Alternet.org.
The Daily Beast noted earlier this year, "Overwhelmingly, those who have committed terrorist attacks in the United States and Europe aren’t Muslims."
