In what is considered to have been a risky strike, U.S. forces bombed a building in Mosul, Iraq that was being used as an ISIS cash repository. Intelligence indicated there were millions of dollars stored in the building, all of which have now been incinerated.
This type of operation is more effective than attacking ground troops, and can have a more meaningful impact against the terrorists. It was risky, though, due to the concentrated civilian population in the area. The target was important enough, though, that the military was willing to risk up to 50 civilian casualties in order to take in out.
Two 2,000 pound bombs leveled the building, cutting off a a major source of funding for the ISIS war and terror efforts.
The Administration is focusing on more and more financial targets to destabilize ISIS’s abilities and to break them economically.
The GOP has been quiet and is reluctant to praise Obama. As Winning Democrats states, perhaps they are furious no Americans died.

The cash bombing and increase in hitting economic targets, rather than military ones, follows up on recent attacks by the U.S. on ISIS oil supply lines.
Here is a CNN news report on the bombing:
