Pompeo: US won't 'stop in the pursuit of bringing evil to justice
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi serves as proof that the U.S. will keep fighting to make sure the nation is safe.
"Baghdadi's demise is further evidence - available for all to see - that the United States will not stop in the pursuit of bringing evil to justice and delivering on our promise to do everything in our power to keep America safe and to bring this scourge to its knees," Pompeo said in a statement following Trump's Sunday morning announcement.
Trump said the terrorist leader died in a U.S. military raid Saturday night. No U.S. forces were killed during the operation.
Pompeo said the terrorist leader "met the fate that he long-deserved."
