Daily Mail: Islamic State chemical weapons expert who trained under Saddam killed in airstrike near Mosul, says US central command

* U.S. claims chemical engineer Abu Malik was killed on January 24
* Malik had worked at Muthanna - an Iraqi factory which produced sarin gas
* The long-time jihadist joined Al-Qaeda in 2005 and ISIS more recently
* Fears the militants are trying to expand their chemical weapons capability
* Anonymous defence source says Malik was 'gathering lots of equipment'

WNU Editor: I am sure he was a very high priority target ... if not in the top 5. This is a worrisome post .... ISIS Chemical Weapon Specialist Was ‘Gathering Equipment’ Before He Was Killed (Daily Beast).

What if people like Abu Malik can pass on their knowledge to others faster than Obama can play whack-a-mole with people like Abu Malik?

I think Obama is too smug to get that.

ISIS has 20,000 recruits supposedly. They cannot all be dumb. It would be stupid to assume that any of them are.
