    Key al Qaeda operative killed in U.S. strike

    U.S. special operations forces used a helicopter to fire on a car Monday in southern Somalia, killing several people, including one they believed was Nabhan, U.S. officials told CNN earlier.

    Nabhan, 30, was born in Kenya and had been tied to attacks that included the 1998 bombings of the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, according to the sources. More than 200 were killed, and 4,000 wounded in those attacks, most of them Kenyans.
    In February 2006, the FBI announced that Nabhan was wanted for questioning in connection with the 2002 suicide bombing of an Israeli-owned hotel and the unsuccessful attack on an Israeli charter jet in Mombasa, Kenya.

    Ten Kenyans and three Israelis -- including two children -- were killed when three suicide bombers detonated a car bomb outside Mombasa's Paradise Hotel in November 2002.

    Very well done, but how is this breaking news?

    I guess it's because at start it was believed to be French commando forces who took the person down, and here CNN is simply saying that it was confirmed to be American forces.
    The assassination itself happened more than 48 hours ago.

    Anyway, why argue this, an al-Qaeda operative with blood on his hands has been sent to hell where he belongs, good job.

    Yeah but it is never a success without the outraged response from the terrorists.

    Who the heck takes terrorists' threats into mind?
    It's not like they wouldn't do everything in their power to spread their terror, they should just wait there till we get to them as well and remove them from the face of earth.

    Fortunately they aren't actually in a position to do anything about it.

    The only way those terrorists will 'hurt' US is by targeting US embassies in E Africa or hijack more ships but even then. I doubt they will get anywhere.

    I hope they are removed from the face of the Earth along with the Islamists and Pro rebel group in Somalia but we can't always get what we want
