Apparently ISIS fighters in the Libyan city of Sirte are on edge after a “mystery sniper” has killed 3 of their top leaders over the past 10 days:

This hero has been dubbed “Daesh hunter” and it’s speculated that he could be an American. From the International Business Times:

And, according to local media in the former Muammar Gaddaffi-stronghold, IS are now sweeping the city hunting for the marksman, dubbed on social media as the ‘Daesh hunter’. The coastal city has been overrun by the terror group, who now roam the streets freely.

Online discussion has centred on the theory that the sniper is a lone gunman from the nearby city of Misrata. But US operatives are thought to be active in the area and a number of US air strikes have killed IS militants in the area.

One eye witness told the al-Wasat website: “A state of terror prevailed among the Isil (Islamic State) ranks after his death. They randomly shot in the air to scare inhabitants, while searching for the sniper.”

Journalist Daniele Raineri for Il Foglio has been covering the story:

Keep up the good work, whoever you are.



  • DeplorableMessMan ✔ JesseMessy

    …”Well it’s a dirty job but SOMEONE’s gotta do it” (as the oft-repeated line goes in this song)…

    • Penny✓ItsSoFluffy! #GoBolts!

      Woo hoo!! Still love that song. 🙂

      • DeplorableMessMan ✔ JesseMessy

        Thanks Penny…I love the stutter-step sound of the snare drum in the song.

        • bil_g

          Flam – hitting it with both sticks with one slightly delayed. Hadn’t listened to it in years and that was the first thing I noticed. I didn’t remember it being so extreme. Love a good flam. The synth pads were what I loved as a kid. Perfect, well…padding.

          Classic, that track.

          • DeplorableMessMan ✔ JesseMessy

            …”Flam”…Thanks for letting me know. Also, according to the this video’s Youtube-description, this may be a different version from the one you last heard: “The original version of We Care a Lot off of their real debut album, We Care a Lot. This is much different than the one that we are most used to (AKA the one on “Dirty Jobs”). This is slower, and some lyrics aren’t the same.”
            …I must say, though, that I googled “Faith No More albums” and didn’t see any one titled #DirtyJobs, so I too am unsure whether this is the same version I’d heard years ago…Eexceptin’ I don’t remember it from years ago sounding THIS good.

          • bil_g

            Interesting! I bought the album when it came out and if you listen to the version in the video it IS different . No constant flamming, for one. You can even see the drummer is only doing it occasionally. The video says “…the NASA shuttle falling in the sea…”, not Los Angeles. So, I’d say this is the “other” version.

            Don’t remember “Dirty Jobs” and don’t see it here:


            Discogs is usually really good with rare stuff. Hmmm…maybe I was just too focused on the keys and didn’t really notice. Cool stuff, though. Thanks for the heads-up! Love these little tidbits.

          • DeplorableMessMan ✔ JesseMessy

            Doh…found it. The TV show.

          • Quint

            It is from their old “Self-titled” album.

          • bil_g

            One of the Untitled tracks? One roughly fits the length.

            TBH, it makes more sense that it was “Introduce Yourself” that I bought. That has the video version(more likely done for this album) and was probably more available.

          • Quint

            Yeah, one album before “Introduce Yourself” As a bass player, there’s a lot of interest in drums as well. One really cool thing about Mike Bordin in early FNM is that he was studying Ghanaian African drums. One reason for a lot of his flams:)

      • Scott Evans

        Where’s that song been all my life?

      • helena handbasket

        Marcus Luttrell and his SEAL buddies said a while back that “boots on the ground” are unnecessary in Syria. He said if a small team of snipers were let loose — with no ROE — they could take care of ALL of ISIS in 30 days.

        • Donald-Now 3x as Deplorable

          • ItsTheTruth

            Seriously? Da’esh is occupying Sirte, destroying UNESCO World Heritage sites, and ravaging the oil fields in Libya BECAUSE of Obama. Hillary calls Libya “Smart Power”. The very LEAST Obama could do is send a few snipers. The interim Libyan govt asked Obama/ Hillary for security agreements on MANY, MANY occasions after the targeted assassination of Gaddafi. They were denied by the brain trust (Obama/ Clinton). Libya is under siege BECAUSE of Obama. Don’t you dare blame this on ANYONE else.

      • san rafael blue

        And the problem with that is…?

    • Marla Hughes

      Your assumption is that he’s not involved. I’m open to all the possibilities, including it being a US mission.

      • Blake Waymire

        If it was a US mission, Obama wouldn’t be able to shut up about how he went on the offensive against ISIS and is thus the greatest leader in the world.

        • Kawfy

          yep, he would have called a prime time press conference complete with I….I….I….then Biden would have called the sniper by name and reported the address of his family.

    Watch Obama come out and take the credit lol. Under my direction I authorized my mystery sniper…

      “…making sure it would stay top secret by borrowing Mrs. Clinton’s email account.”

      • Michelle ✓classified

        …and Valerie Jarrett got permission from Iran for the mission.

    • linnilu

      And Biden will probably name the sniper.

      • Michelle ✓classified

        And scold him for not using a shotgun.

        • bxarmybrat

          Big government would prefer us to have shotguns instead of rifles, very limited effective range.

    • mary

      Obama will probably see to it that he’s prosecuted for murder, or killed. Terrorists need jobs and James Taylor tunes.

    • Stephen K

      Brian Williams will tell us how he was right there next to Obama as he sighted down the scope and expertly squeezed the trigger each time. Brian’s in awe of Obama’s breath control.

      • Michelle ✓classified

        And Hillary will say she was in the sniper’s path dodging bullets.
