Moving down the chain

The number two man in Al Qaeda is dead.

Al Qaeda’s No. 2 boss, Atiyah Abd al-Rahman, has been killed in Pakistan, dealing another devastating blow to the terrorist network, a U.S. official said Saturday.

Just four months after Al Qaeda founder Osama Bin Laden was gunned down by an elite Navy SEAL team in his Pakistani hideaway, al Rahman was killed in Pakistan’s tribal region, Waziristan, the official told the Associated press.

The official said al Rahman died Aug. 22, but would not say how he met his demise.

His death came on the same day an unmanned CIA drone bombed the Waziristan area.

Two down, next!

    Good riddance. It’s time for Zawahiri to get a Hellfire up the backside now.

    F**king hell, at this rate they will be running short of virgins in paradise. Might have to be second hand models if we score another one soon.
