An SAS sniper has killed a senior ISIS fighter with a ´one in a million´ night-time shot from a mile away, it has been claimed. The marksman is said to have killed the terrorist with a ´head shot´ close to the Syrian border having been given a window of just 15 seconds. He is understood to be a sergeant with the SAS G-Squadron and a veteran of operations in both Iraq and Afghanistan, where he is understood to have recorded as many as 100 kills. According to the Daily Star Sunday, he is believed to have used a US-made McMillan TAC-50 sniper

That’s a pretty nifty gun he’s got there. Can Michigan and Minnesota residents get those?

.50!

At that distance and that size it must have made an impressive splash on the other end.

Well done! From that range, the demoralization of the enemy is maxed out. Can you imagine? No matter where you are, if you lead this group of monsters in human form, you are not safe. The second you take command, your days are limited. Obviously, according to their belief system, "It is God´s will".

Wow, body shots at that range are becoming commonplace but a head shot is truly impressive. Everything has to be just right.

Imagine seeing the jihadi´s head explode and you don´t hear the shot until seven seconds later. That would be enough to make you want to turn infidel.

Well done. Note that he didn´t use a British made rifle.....they really don´t have anyone who knows anything about guns in their country any more.

If he hit him in the head with a .50 BMG....ewwwweee. Splash all over EVERYTHING.

Since the rifle is capable of ~9-18" groups, (0.5-1.0 MOA, 1760 yds), at that range, with no wind variation, it was, to a degree, a lucky shot.

And nobody shoots at heads at 1800 yards. They shoot at center of mass, and in this case missed a bit high, still centered. Must have been pretty calm winds, too.

Great shot, no doubt. Making the world a better place, on shot at a time.

COLUMBIA, SC Inside an S.C. state prison, it is possible for an inmate using an illegal cellphone to get on the internet´s "dark web," run a thriving drug ring and plot to send a bomb by the U.S. mail. In U.S. District Court in Columbia this week, witness after witness — including FBI domestic terrorism and internet and explosives experts — testified just how easy it was for convicted killer Michael Young, 32, to do all those things from his cell at the Broad River Road complex near Irmo.

WASHINGTON - A long-awaited U.S. Justice Department internal watchdog report on former FBI chief James Comey’s public disclosures on Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while secretary of state and whether FBI employees leaked information to try to hurt her 2016 presidential bid is expected to be issued next month. The report from Michael Horowitz, the department’s inspector general, arises from an investigation he launched about a week before Republican President Donald Trump, who defeated Democrat Clinton in the election, took office in January 2017.

BUDAPEST - George Soros’ Open Society Foundations will close their office in Budapest and move their eastern European operations to Berlin, Hungarian media cited Austria’s Die Presse newspaper as saying on Thursday. Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has blamed Soros, a Hungarian-born U.S. financier, for a host of ills and pushed through legislation cracking down on non-governmental organizations called the “Stop Soros” laws which drew international criticism. The Hungarian news web site 444.hu said the Open Society Foundations office would shut down by Aug. 31 and move first to Vienna then on to Berlin.

WASHINGTON - The Trump administration rolled out a long-awaited overhaul of U.S. arms export policy on Thursday aimed at expanding sales to allies, saying it will bolster the American defense industry and create jobs at home. The White House aims to speed up arms deal approvals and increase the role of senior U.S. officials, including President Donald Trump, in closing foreign sales, while giving greater weight to business interests in sales decisions that have long prioritized human rights. The initiative, as first reported by Reuters, adds the full weight of government to Trump’s direct personal role in pushing arms sales during

Plastic straws, drinks stirrers and cotton buds could be banned from sale in England under plans being set out by Theresa May. The prime minister said plastic waste was "one of the greatest environmental challenges facing the world" and said the UK was taking a lead in tackling the problem. A consultation on banning the disposable plastic products will launch later this year in an effort to cut the amount of waste which ends up in rivers and oceans. Mrs May urged Commonwealth leaders gathered in London to follow the UK’s example in tackling the problem. She said: “Plastic waste is one of

COLUMBIA, S.C. - South Carolina lawmakers have given key approval to a sanctuary cities bill backed by Gov. Henry McMaster, but not without some changes. After hours of debate Wednesday, the House gave second reading approval to the bill penalizing local governments for not reporting people in the country without legal permission. But lawmakers also changed the proposal to allow courts and not the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division to determine if local governments aren´t reporting people in the country illegally. Critics say sanctuary cities are already illegal in South Carolina and the bill would solve a problem that does

A magnitude 5.9 earthquake struck Iran´s southern province of Bushehr which is home to a nuclear power plant on Thursday. State television reported the earthquake around 10am local time saying the epicentre was close to the town of Kaki in a sparsely populated area. The epicenter is also 60 miles away from the Bushehr nuclear power plant. There was no damage to the plant, state reports said, and no immediate reports of damage or casualties elsewhere. Bushehr, the country´s only operating nuclear plant, has survived earthquakes in the past, and was built to withstand tremors in earthquake-prone Iran. The semi-official Tasnim news agency said

The Democratic National Committee filed a multimillion-dollar lawsuit Friday against the Russian government, the Trump campaign and the WikiLeaks organization alleging a far-reaching conspiracy to disrupt the 2016 campaign and tilt the election to Donald Trump.

“If the Trumps were Democrats,” conservative actor James Woods tweeted earlier this month, “Melania would be on every cover of every chic women’s magazine in the world every month.” Woods may be exaggerating a little bit — only Oprah can put herself on the cover of a magazine every month, and it’s her own magazine — but he does make an interesting point. First Lady Melania Trump has not graced the cover of a single magazine in the United States since her husband took office over a year ago.

The past 12 hours brought two very big revelations involving former FBI director James B. Comey, President Trump and the Russia investigation, and they must be looked at side by side to fully grasp their collective importance. Comey’s memos of his conversations with Trump have leaked in full. This came after Republicans threatened to subpoena them from Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein, leading him to release them to Congress. Comey confirmed to Rachel Maddow that before getting fired, he ordered an internal investigation into whether Trump surrogate Rudy Giuliani had been privately tipped off by people in the FBI two weeks

Attorney General Jeff Sessions recently told the White House he might have to leave his job if President Trump fired his deputy, Rod J. Rosenstein, who oversees the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, according to people familiar with the exchange. Sessions made his position known in a phone call to White House counsel Donald McGahn last weekend, as Trump’s fury at Rosenstein peaked after the deputy attorney general approved the FBI’s raid April 9 on the president’s personal attorney Michael Cohen. Sessions’s message to the White House, which has not previously been reported, underscores the political firestorm

New York set aside $10 million for the legal defense of immigrants targeted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement just days after ICE announced the arrest of hundreds of people in the state. The Liberty Defense Project will ensure legal rights are being represented, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said. It was launched last year, but it needs the additional funds in light of what state officials described as “overly aggressive tactics” from ICE. “ICE’s hyper-aggressive raids on hardworking New Yorkers are immoral and un-New York, and we stand more determined than ever to support the rights of all immigrants in the Empire State
