"I actually think Conan knew exactly what was going on", he added. "But a dog that is very, very special".
"Our K-9, as they call - I call it a dog, a lovely dog, a talented dog - was injured and brought back", he told the press. "We are very honored to have Conan here", Trump continued.
"We have declassified a picture of the wonderful dog (name not declassified) that did such a GREAT JOB in capturing and killing the Leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi!" Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Army Gen. Mark Milley said at the time that military leaders were protecting the dog's identity. "Nobody's going to mess with Conan".
Conan, who was injured during the raid, arrived from the Middle East and headed straight to Washington DC to meet with President Donald Trump.
Donald Trump was joined by Vice President Mike Pence and first lady Melania Trump in the Rose Garden to praise the dog, who was injured in the October raid.
"He's an incredible dog". Ultimate everything, ' Trump said.
Romaine salad recall expands amid E. coli outbreak
Preliminary information indicates that sickened residents of Maryland were exposed to romaine lettuce grown in the Salinas area. The recalled salad products were sold under different brand names and "use by" dates from October 29, 2019 to November 1, 2019.
The US leader also took the opportunity to trumpet once more the raid on Baghdadi, who had led IS since 2014 and at the time of his death was the world's most wanted man. So brilliant and so smart. Trump also noted that he'd met in the Oval Office with some of the two-legged participants in the Baghdadi raid, noting that "for obvious reasons, they can't be out in front of the media". Trump was briefed on the tools available to the members of the Delta team before the raid, Pence said, including their military working dogs.
"He was badly hurt but he recovered very quickly. It was a flawless attack and al-Baghdadi is gone", Trump said with Conan at his side.
The head of US Central Command, General Kenneth McKenzie, has called Conan a "critical member of our forces", with an impressive record of 50 combat missions in four years of service. "So that's awesome. And yet you see how attractive and calm they are in situations like this". "And you're very lucky, because he's not in a bad mood today".
Details about Conan's life, achievements and family background are scant, but he certainly comes from good stock: US Navy SEALs used a Belgian Malinois in the 2011 raid in Pakistan that killed Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. Conan is primetime, age-wise.
"I learned a lot about this particular type of dog".
"This is the ultimate fighter, ultimate everything".
