  • Now about Baghdadi's last moments: I can tell you this, he crawled into a hole

  • with two small children and blew himself up while his people stayed on the ground.

  • You can deduce what kind of person it is based on that activity.

  • So that would be just my empirical observation of what he did.

  • I'm not able to confirm anything about his last seconds.

  • I just can't confirm that, one way or another.

  • As you can see, the Defence Intelligence Agency conducted the analysis

  • and compared DNA from the remains taken from the compound with

  • an own file sample taken when Baghdadi was at Camp Bucca prison in Iraq in 2004.

  • We believe that the ages of both children that he took down there with him

  • were under 12 years old, but that's about all

  • I can tell you about that.

  • I can tell you that we believe that Baghdadi actually may have fired from his hole

  • and in his last moments.

  • The other people that were engaged on the objective were behaving in a threatening manner,

  • with suicide vests approaching the raid force and that causes you to make

  • some decisions, particularly when they don't respond to Arabic language commands

  • to stop,

  • warning shots and the progression of escalation that our special operators

  • are so very good at.
