Abu Jihad al-Masri, R.I.P.

The good guys scored a kill:
An Egyptian Al-Qaeda operative -- described by the United States as the terror network's propaganda chief -- was killed in a missile strike in Pakistan, security officials said on Saturday.
Abu Jihad al-Masri was among several rebels killed when two missiles fired by a suspected US spy drone hit a truck in the North Waziristan tribal region bordering Afghanistan on Friday night, they said.
The United States has offered a one-million-dollar bounty for the death or capture of al-Masri, who has appeared in an anti-Western video introduced by Ayman al-Zawahiri, Osama bin Laden's number two.
"The strike was aimed at a vehicle carrying Abu Jihad and two others. The target was successfully hit and all three people were killed," a senior Pakistani security official told AFP on condition of anonymity.
Terrible how we're losing the War on Terror, eh?

  1. I am sure once Obama gets in, peace will break out between the muslim countries and the United States. We'll all hold posies in our hands and sing kumbaya. Until then, we should continue to send terrorists on their way.
