Abu Maysara: Top al-Qaeda operative killed!

An al Qaeda-linked group in Iraq has confirmed the death of Abu Maysara, a top operative who the U.S. military said was killed in a clash last month, according to a recording posted on the Web on Saturday.

Abu Omar al-Baghdadi, leader of the Islamic State in Iraq, hailed Maysara as "a martyr who was a scholar and a mujahid (holy war fighter)", on the audio tape posted on Islamist Web sites.

The U.S. military said earlier in December that Maysara, a Syrian, was among nine senior al Qaeda members killed in November. It described him as an adviser to Baghdadi, also known as Abu Ayyub al-Masri, and his slain predecessor Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.

Got to wonder how Number One feels about that ......

According to the article, we got nine (9) potential #2's at the same time w/ him. That ought to take them down to the scum on the bottom of the barrel. As we eat away at their hierarchy they get dumber and crazier, and a lot less capable of launching systematic attacks. I call that progress!

Yeah, I suppose you probably would!!!


You probably play Pac Man a lot too, don't you?

Too bad their women keep giving birth to more of those pesky terrorists, isn't it, Jayhawk?

This is good news. Better news would be finding out we've hit people like OBL, Mullah Omar and al Zawahiri (I'm spelling his name wrong, but he's al Qaeda's #2). All those bad guys in Afghanistan and Pakistan who got this whole thing started in the first place.
