    By Theodore Schleifer and Tal Kopan CNN WASHINGTON (CNN) — Donald Trump on Thursday told Iowa’s voters that those who support Ben Carson are “stupid” to believe the “crap” that is his life story, part of a stunning 95-minute tirade that included his most aggressive attack yet on his closest competitor.

    ‘Jihadi John’ targeted by U.S. airstrike in Syria

    WASHINGTON (CNN) — “Jihadi John,” the jeering, sadistic masked mouthpiece of ISIS, may have been killed in a U.S. airstrike in Raqqa, Syria.

This was a mission of “persistent surveillance,” a senior U.S. official said, adding that authorities knew it was Emwazi when they took the shot. Another U.S. official told CNN that Emwazi was in […]
