While providing air support for ground forces fighting south of the city of Fallujah on Wednesday, the United States troops killed an estimated 250 Islamic State militants, making it one of the deadliest attacks carried out against the terrorists.
The U.S. also destroyed an estimated 40 Islamic State vehicles.
Last weekend, Iraq concluded a five-week campaign with an announcement that they had liberated Fallujah from the terrorist organization, with the assistance of U.S. air support, according to Reuters.
“We’ve made, I think, some significant progress, along with our coalition partners, in Syria and Iraq, where most of the ISIS members are resident right now,” CIA chief John Brennan said.
Brennan then addressed the group’s attacks abroad, such as the one that took place at Istanbul, Turkey’s main airport, which took 41 lives.
“But ISIS’ ability to continue to propagate its narrative, as well as to incite and carry out these attacks — I think we still have a way to go before we’re able to say that we have made some significant progress against them.”

That’s not likely to happen — President Obama isn’t noted for reading his Presidential Daily Briefs.

Conditions could change after Obama’s out of office, however.
