In the American command, they say that they are confident in the elimination of "Jihadi John" by 99%. Newspaper The Washington Post cites a statement by Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook (translation RIA News):
We evaluate the results of the operation carried out this evening (on Thursday) and will present an additional operation when it is appropriate.
The words of the Pentagon representative about “99% confidence” in eliminating Emasi may indicate that the main military department is clearly preparing to present information in a way that is convenient only to Washington. At one time, the US military department managed to publish at least three messages (in different years) about the elimination of the “terrorist number XXUMX” by Osama bin Laden. Only after the operation carried out by the American special forces in Pakistan, was it finally announced that bin Laden was dead.
