WASHINGTON/MOSCOW (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said on Monday he may declassify and release part of the video taken on Saturday of the raid in Syria in which Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was killed.
The video is believed to include aerial footage and possibly footage from cameras mounted on the soldiers who stormed Baghdadi's compound.
"We're thinking about it. We may," Trump told reporters before flying to Chicago. "We may take certain parts of it and release it."
