Former US National Intelligence Director James Clapper compared the liquidation of ISIS and al-Qaeda leaders.
Speaking on CNN, Clapper said he was hesitant to discuss who was the worst terrorist targeted by the United States, but stressed that Osama bin Laden had a far greater impact because ISIS was not responsible for the killing. Thousands of people are on US soil as is the case with al-Qaeda and bin Laden.
Clapper said he was confident that "targeting bin Laden had the greatest impact, especially since ISIS is in a weak position now.
"Former US President Barack Obama had less certain intelligence than Trump had," Clapper said. "So the decision to raid Trump was much easier, thanks to America's Iraqi allies, especially the Kurds, who provided intelligence to the US about where. The presence of Baghdadi. "
He continued: "In the case of bin Laden, the United States did not have accurate information about his whereabouts, and therefore Obama's decision to raid was difficult and courageous."
US President Donald Trump said Baghdadi was the worst among terrorists.
The White House released a picture of the US president following the process of Baghdadi's liquidation, similar to a picture posted earlier to Obama as he pursued bin Laden's liquidation.
