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!

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
