    Jan. 1 Attack By CIA Killed Two Leaders Of Al-Qaeda

    Jan. 1 Attack By CIA Killed Two Leaders Of Al-Qaeda

    washingtonpost.com

    A New Year's Day CIA strike in northern Pakistan killed two top al-Qaeda members long sought by the United States, including the man believed to be behind September's deadly suicide bombing at a Marriott hotel in the Pakistani capital, U.S. counterterrorism officials confirmed yesterday.

    Agency officials ascertained this week that Usama al-Kini, a Kenyan national who was described as al-Qaeda's chief of operations in Pakistan, was killed in the Jan. 1 missile strike, along with his lieutenant, identified as Sheikh Ahmed Salim Swedan, the sources said. Both men were associated with a string of suicide attacks in Pakistan in recent months and also allegedly helped plan the 1998 bombings of U.S. embassies in East Africa.


    Great job boys!

    I'm still all about this thing being won, you just started the thread the wrong way, you said it perfectly the first time with nothing to add.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    What does "winning the war" even mean, at this point?
    Kill all the Al Qaeda leaders?
    Who cares?
    There are a hundred, a thousand, ten thousand ready to take the place of each one killed; this is largely the result of US conduct in the region.

    Have you ever encountered one of those situations where everything you do- anything you could possibly do- is making things worse?
    Where it finally occurs to you that your best option is simply to shut your mouth and go sit on your hands in a quiet room somewhere?
    I'm encountering these situations a lot lately, or maybe I'm just recognizing them more often. Maybe in the past, I encountered them too, but I simply wasn't able to stop doing things, to stop trying to fix things, when my interference was obviously making them worse.

    I think this is the impasse we've come to in this "global war on terror".
    I think it's a good idea, at this point, that we stop doing things, stop saying things, and simply go sit on our hands in a quiet room. Preferably, here in America.
    Until something changes, everything we do from here on out only makes it worse.

    Well done but 'winning the war' is impossible
    How does a country plan to defeat a ideology?

    Its the ideology that ensures the continuation of Al Qaeda.
    Yes, a few leaders has died. More will take their place.
    The war is a waste of time

    Hmm, Al Qaeda killed a member of my family and several friends, including NYPD and NYFD....


    I strongly disagree with you.



    Where you see futility, I see a target rich environment.
