Top terrorist in Yemen now heads 'steadfastly to God' . . . or somewhere.
Drone strike kills Al Qaeda's No 2 in commandIt seems like we get these number two guys a lot, but in fairness, we did get that number one guy some time back. Even so, the more dead Al Qaeda the better. So nice job, America, and no apologies for the use of the drone.
The objective of war is not to die for your country, as Gen. Patton is rumored to have said. Its to make the other poor dumb bastard die for his - not a country, in this case, but an entire outfit of bastards:
Al-Qaedas branch in Yemen confirmed early Tuesday that a CIA drone strike killed its leader last week in a blow to the terror group as its militants appear to be benefiting from the widening unrest in the Arabian Peninsula country.
Nasir al-Wuhayshi, who pushed the group to engineer repeated terror plots against the United States, was targeted in the strike last week, according to U.S. officials who had said on Monday that it was too early to be certain he had been killed.

How many of these 2nd-in-command types do they have?
#2? Again? That stinks.

They ought to just give them a red shirt.
This is the only president the media, academia, entertainers, and various forms of communist activists like people for the American way, code pinko, or any of the opponents of the America we once knew and loved — would ever have allowed such a wide berth for doing what amounts to assassinations.

Well - it IS black-on-black. That always gets a pass.
Being second in command is like being a Star Trek red shirt...
They’ll make more.
Too damn many, apparently.
One less worm.
huh ,,What ??
He wanted his Virgins and to cut off you’re noggin,,,
suppose You can call him what ever you want to.
ASSASSINATE: “to kill suddenly or secretively, especially a politically prominent person”
That is the definition; it matches the use of ordnance where the political leaders never know what hits them.
Please understand: I am all for it; it’s just that the act is not even questioned when it’s done by their boy. But just let a conservative president try it.
It pains me to say it; but assassination is the only thing brocko has done well.
