Another One Bites The Dust

Al-Qaeda and the Taliban in Pakistan are learning that they are not missile-proof, and that they are vulnerable if we find out where they are. That appears to be the plight of Abu Khabab al-Masri, who was sent to his eternal reward via a Predator drone:

Al-Qaeda chemical weapons expert Midhat Mursi al-Sayid Umar was believed to have been killed Monday in a suspected US missile strike in Pakistan, security officials told AFP.

"We believe he was killed in this strike," a senior intelligence official based in the northwestern city of Peshawar told AFP on condition of anonymity.

"It was his hide-out and information that has been shared with us says he was targeted in this strike," the official said.

The Egyptian, 54, also known as Abu Khabab al-Masri, had a five-million-US-dollar bounty on his head and allegedly ran terrorist training camps in Afghanistan.

For those who do not recall who this man is, back in 2002 we discovered raining tapes made by al-Qaeda, and al-Masri was in one where he was showing dogs that they used chemical weapons on. The video was beyond disgusting, and only a heartless animal would take as much glee in making such a tape as al-Masri did. That tape sent a clear message to the world that al-Qaeda wanted more than just Kalishnikovs, RPGs, and bomb vests. They were looking for newer, deadlier weapons to use in their jihad.

It we either utilized five million dollars in intelligence, or paid an informant five million, it was well spent to remove this piece of garbage from the face of the planet.
