al-Qaeda Senior Member Of Information Killed By U.S. MilitaryTopics: Iraq
Chalk up one less kidnapper/murderer/Islamothug on the planet, as the U.S. military reports that the first day of May was the last day of life for Muharib Abdul Latif al-Jubouri (confirmed by DNA tests), the "senior minister of information" for al Qaeda in Iraq, and a key figure in the separate abductions of journalist Jill Carroll, Tom Fox, one of four men from the Chicago-based peace group Christian Peacemaker Teams who was found fatally shot in Baghdad in March of last year, and other foreigners.
On the down side, still no word no information to support claims by Iraq's Interior Ministry that Abu Omar al-Baghdadi, another senior al Qaeda figure in Iraq, had been killed, nor that Abu Ayyub al-Masri, the leader of al Qaeda in Iraq, had been killed in a fight between insurgents north of Baghdad.
With more and more al-Qaeda chiefs getting whacked - must be a sign the surge is a Quagmire! Disaster! Debacle! - if only for the Democrats.
