CNN: US Has Secret 'Kill List' of Top ISIS Leaders

By    |   Tuesday, 17 Feb 2015 08:40 PM

The United States has a secret "kill list" of about a dozen leaders of the Islamic State (ISIS), CNN reports.

The No. 1 most-wanted is Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the network reports.

Story continues below video.



The list also includes the ISIS member known as "Jihadi John," who uses the name Jalman al-Britani – the masked jihadi who speaks with a British accent and has been pictured in the gruesome executions of a number of ISIS captives, CNN reports.

"Fundamentally, this is a kill list – something top officials have been aware of for months," CNN Pentagon correspondent Barbara Starr reports, citing unnamed government officials.

"One of the key things about this list," Starr reports, is that the list is "not just focusing on Jihadi John, though, yep, they want to get him. … The list focuses on the top leadership, the ones if they could be killed, might fundamentally degrade ISIS' operations."

Government sources also tell the network names have been added and removed as the U.S.-led coalition has conducted airstrikes against the group in both Iraq and Syria.
