Study finds it’s much easier to defeat a terrorist group when you’re not secretly funding them

President Donald Trump recently declared that ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was dead after a US military raid in northwest Syria over the weekend.

A new study published in the prestigious Journal of Obvious Information found that it’s much easier to defeat a terrorist group when you’re not secretly funding them.

“Many think that it’s smart to give weapons and fund terrorist groups around the world,” the study’s author Captain Jim Obvious said. “But what our data reveal is that it’s much easier to beat the terrorists if you’re not secretly funneling weapons through Benghazi to them.”

Skeptics across the country have voiced their disagreement.

“No that doesn’t make sense,” said John Wolfowitz, leader of the Military Industrial Complex Association. “ISIS wouldn’t have existed without the US funneling weapons and money to them. So, how could we beat them if they didn’t exist in the first place?”
