    Official Says Top Al Qaeda Operative Killed in Pakistan - FoxNews.com

    DERA ISMAIL KHAN, Pakistan A top Al Qaeda commander and possible replacement for Usama bin Laden was killed in an American drone-fired missile strike close to the Afghan border, the militant group he heads and a Pakistani intelligence official said Saturday.

    Ilyas Kashmiri's death is another blow to Al Qaeda just over a month after bin Laden was killed by American commandos in a northwest Pakistani army town. Described by U.S. officials as Al Qaeda's military operations chief in Pakistan, he was one of five most-wanted militant leaders in the country, accused in a string of bloody attacks, including the 2008 Mumbai massacre.

    Rhetorical question: Why do Pakistan officials have so much trouble finding terrorists in their country? Hmmm...

    According to the local paper, this incident is supposed to help heal US/Pakistini relations, as Kashmiri was wanted there, too.

    Another blow to Al Qaeda! Good news. I wonder how long before his killing is attributed to Bush and his "enhanced interrogation"? Counting....
