The page indicates that the ISIS leadership council is 100 percent 
Iraqi, saying that Baghdadi would not accept any other nationality, 
since he does not trust anyone. The number of people in the council 
always changes, ranging between eight and 13 people. The leadership of 
the council is held by three former Iraqi army officers who served 
during the regime of Saddam Hussein.

They are commanded by a former Iraqi army colonel called Hajji Bakr, who 
joined ISIS when it was under the command of Abu Omar al-Baghdadi 
(killed in 2010). Hajji Bakr was appointed as a consultant to Abu Omar 
al-Baghdadi and Abu Hafs al-Muhajir, after providing them with military 
information about combat plans and communication methods with former 
Baath commanders
