I keep looking for headlines saying, “Life Insurance Underwriters In Trouble.” Not finding such, I’m left with a troubling thought. Is it possible some people are unable to obtain life insurance at any price? I reached out to Sami Jassim Mohammed Al-Jabouri, defacto oil minister for ISIL (Daesh) in Syria and Iraq. I received no response:
(CNN) — Coalition forces, including American military operatives, killed a senior ISIS leader when conducting an operation on the Iraqi-Syrian border Wednesday, officials said.Killed was Sami Jassim Mohammed Al-Jabouri, known by the nom de guerre Haji Hamad, said the Kurdistan Region Security Council. His reported death is the latest victory in the coalition’s ongoing fight against the terrorist organization’s financial staying power.Jabouri was responsible for ISIS operations regarding natural resources in Iraq and Syria. He and an aide were killed in the operation. The United States has not verified Jabouri was the man killed in the mission but verified he was a key figure in ISIS oil operations.
That might explain the lack of response. The CNN report did not mention whether Mr. Al-Jabouri had life insurance. In any event, the policy will not pay off until his death is confirmed. It’s one of those things that insurance companies do.
