    Killing Bin Laden or Zawahiri would be incredible, and give Obama a huge boost with his public opinion numbers.

    That's good news, but, uh...

    January 31, 2008

    ANOTHER AL QAEDA NO. 3.... Stop me if you've heard this one: al Qaeda's #3 man has been killed.

    A senior al Qaeda terrorist who allegedly plotted and carried out attacks against U.S. and coalition forces was killed in Pakistan, a knowledgeable Western official and a military source told CNN Thursday.

    He was identified as Abu Laith al-Libi, 41, who was on the military's most wanted list.

    ...

    This is certainly welcome news. I'm curious, though, if anyone has a list of al Qaeda #3s who've been captured or killed recently. I was keeping a list for a while, and I think al-Libi is the seventh, following Hamza Rabia, Abu Faraj al-Libbi, Saif al-Adel, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, Mohammed Sheikh Mohammed, and a senior operational leader identified in court documents as "C-2."

    That's at least the eighth "number three" we've gotten so far.

    Yeah. Unfortunately if we killed 1 or 2, then there would be another 1 or 2.

    Good riddance.

    These low lives don't deserve to live, and I say good for the military in this action.

    Re: U.S. believes it killed al Qaeda No.3

    How many previous times has this sort of information turned out to have been wrong ?
    I sense this to be propaganda - Al Qaeda supposedly released the news of his death.
    Could Al Qaeda be lying, and our wishful thinking believes them ?
    Or could this be our manufactured justification for the drone attacks ?

    But, if true, he no doubt has already been replaced.
