Omar al-Shishani is Dead Jim! (Update: Heartbreak Only Severely Wounded) (Rebumped Lingered Plug Pulled)

Nothing like freshly dead ISIS stories to brighten a cloudy day!

A top ISIS commander known by his nickname Omar the Chechen and recognized by his distinguishable red beard is believed dead from a U.S. airstrike in Syria, a senior defense official told NBC News Tuesday.

The likely death of Omar al-Shishani near the town of Shaddadi seized by Syrian rebels from ISIS last month would be a key gain for coalition forces in taking out one of the biggest names on the U.S.'s terror hit list.

Update: 03/10 reports are emerging from inside Syria that al-Shishani was only severely wounded in the attack and he's being treated at the hospital in Raqqa.

Well that should do him in, as Raqqa is suffering shortages of medical supplies and personnel.

Update: Word has it that Omar was clinically dead but today a random or no so random power outage in Raqqa did him in.

Now is the time at Jawa when we dance.
