Retired General Keith Kellogg reacted to the death of al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri Monday on “Jesse Watters Primetime”.

KEITH KELLOGG: I won’t lose any sleep tonight over al-Zawahri’s death. He was a thug. He was actually the mastermind behind bin Laden, the mastermind behind the outfit, kind of like the chief operating officer. We were able to find him and kill him. President Biden was right. We’ll find you, and we’ll kill you no matter what, and I think having a $25 million bounty on your head also helps a lot. Over time, we’ll be able to unearth these guys and find them.

Here is the concern I have. The concern I have. Let’s make sure to check that we have the guy. When we killed Bin Laden, we were able to verify that we had him. When we killed Baghdadi, we were able to verify that we had him. When we killed Soleimani, we were able to verify that we had it. Let’s make sure to verify that we actually got this guy so we’re able to assure the American people that it was a good hit. President Trump was right. President Biden was right.

We said you can attack these guys from a distance. When you have things like the Predator and the World Hawk with great loitering time, the ability to strike from a distance, we said you no need for ground troops. President Trump said so. President Biden said it. He came out of Afghanistan in a very messy way, but I think the fact is true.
