Obviously this is a good thing and I’m glad he’s dead, but killing one terrorist? He can’t be the only one responsible for the attack. Also they killed nearly 200 in the suicide bombing yesterday.
It just seems a bit like small potatoes that really isn’t going to scare any other ISIS terrorists from committing more attacks.
