A U.S. official confirmed that a Monday drone strike in Pakistan killed al Qaeda leader Abu Yahya al-Libi, the most serious blow to the battered terror network since the death of its leader Osama bin Laden.
Al-Libi's death, which came on the third consecutive day of CIA drone strikes in the Pakistani tribal areas bordering Afghanistan, is a serious knock to what remains of al Qaeda's Pakistan-based core leadership.

Al-Libi was the key organizer in Pakistan, more so than bin Laden, and the most important front line commander.
Zawahiri is next.
Before he escaped from Bagram in 2005, we got his DNA so ID is not in doubt.
Hmmm, how extrajudicial of dear leader.
Talk about doing a 180.
Any word if “Yabba-Dabba-Do” survived?
Remember how being third in line in Al Qaeda was the most dangerous job. I think that is now second in line. Zawahiri leads a charmed life....
Number Two is now Number Two!
Thanks for the update, g! Dirt nap for the troglodyte! Many, many more to go...
nothing like al libi libi libi...with a drone on its label label label...sending him to his virgins
Good thing we have a democrat president, if he was a republican the loyal opposition would be threatening impeachment for war crimes.
Assuming Zawahiri isn’t the one dropping dimes.
You beat me to it. Yabba-Dabba-Do better watch his back.
One down, 1,599,999,999 to go.
An upwardly mobile malcontent to serve in the ranks of the worlds leading terrorist group, al Qaeda.

I don’t think Zawahiri is lucky. He is being protected by the Pakis and probably hiding out in a city like osama was.
