A U.S. Navy SEAL was killed in an ISIS attack in northern Iraq, officials said Tuesday. Pentagon Press Secretary Peter Cook said the U.S. serviceman was advising and assisting Kurdish Peshmerga forces north of Mosul when ISIS fighters attacked. 'This sad news is a reminder of the dangers our men and women in uniform face every day in the ongoing fight to destroy ISIL,' Cook said in a statement, using another acronym for ISIS.
