Trump blames New York Times for foiling attempt to kill ISIS cheif Baghdadi

"The Failing New York Times foiled US attempt to kill the single most wanted terrorist, Al-Baghdadi. Their sick agenda over National Security," Trump tweeted. The president, however, did not give any other details in support of his claim.

Earlier, Defence Secretary James Mattis said he believes Baghdadi is still alive, shooting down claims the elusive ISIS leader was killed in a Russian air strike in war-torn Syria.

Trump also lashed out another major US daily The Washington Post in other tweet.

"A new INTELLIGENCE LEAK from the Amazon Washington Post, this time against AG Jeff Sessions. These illegal leaks, like Comey's, must stop!" Trump said seeking an end to these leaks.

In an exclusive story, The Post wrote that Sessions had substantive discussion with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak on matters related to the Trump campaign.
