It looks like yet another Islamist has gone to the Great High School Girls’ Shower in the Sky. We don’t think the target was Osama or Ayman, but it was someone up the food chain. Then again, the way wev’e been killing Islamists, “up the food chain” may well mean some guy who’s managed to stay alive for six months.
Here’s a truly funny quote as well.
Pakistani intelligence sources say they believe a “high-value” al Qaeda target was killed in a missile strike yesterday in the country’s tribal region bordering Afghanistan.
U.S. officials said there was no indication that the target was Osama bin Laden or his deputy Ayman al Zawahri, but one senior official told ABCNews.com the strike was aimed at one particular figure.
“We don’t know whether we got him yet, we are sorting through it,” the official said, indicating the intended target was a top leader of the terror group.
Heh. With a fine mesh net and a pair of tweezers, I’d imagine.
