Earlier this morning, Americans learned that thanks to the skill and brav­ery of our Armed Forces, we have taken off the bat­tle­field the leader – the world leader – of ISIS.

I want to thank the incredible work of our brave military service members, who work day and night to keep Americans safe. So many have suffered at the brutal hand of ISIS.

Senators will learn more about the operation later this morning, during our classified All-Senators Briefing with Secretary Austin and other senior administration officials.
