ISIS terrorists captured al-Baghdadi, Iraq this week just 3 miles from the al-Asad air base.
300 US Marines are stationed at the base.
Isis suicide bombers launched a dawn attack on the base. Eight Islamic State fighters were killed by Iraqi forces in the 7:20 a.m. raid.
From the airport, Pres Obama heads to the golf course at the Sunnylands Annenberg Estate. He’s played there 5 times on previous visits.
