So, the US says he's dead, and someone/people in a chat-room, I mean jihadist forums on May 31, say he is dead, along with wife, kids (three daughters), and other men, women and children. Did I forget to mention that they promised revenge (no, the words about infidels paying are not a standard greeting, despite some suggestions).
All this air-strike talk reminds one a lot of Gaza et al. So, the guy handled finances and operational planning, the Telegraph claims, apparently the Jihadists couldn't hire a chartered accountant. I hope their taxes are in order. They forget to mention that Al Qaeda has many independent Cells, and allies, of course, though they do have something to tell the press. I still don't see the Taliban or Somalis standing down.
Through this latest alleged hit, the USA is reportedly closer to winning their war on Al Qaeda. I just hope that none of Al Qaeda's allies, e.g. in Somalia, where I doubt the guy was in charge, decide to take revenge on the rest of us, e.g. South Africa 2010 Soccer/Football World Cup.
