    Another victory for Obama's drone war....

    CNN) -- Abu Yahya al-Libi, the No. 2 man in al Qaeda and a longtime public face of the terror network, is dead, White House spokesman Jay Carney confirmed Tuesday.

    Al-Libi's death was "another serious blow to core al Qaeda," said Carney, who was unable to provide further details.

    "His death is part of the degradation taking place in core al Qaeda in the last several years," Carney said.

    Earlier Tuesday, U.S. officials said that al-Libi was killed by a CIA drone strike in Pakistan launched Monday.

    Al-Libi's death marks one of the most significant blows to al Qaeda since the U.S. military killed Osama bin Laden in a daring nighttime raid in Pakistan a year ago.

    Bush's theme was "Wanted Dead or Alive"

    Obama's theme is "Wanted Dead Not Alive"

    Kill:Boom2: all radical terrorists and those that support them!

    The method makes no difference at all. Just kill them...by whatever means are available....wherever they may hide!

    ...and it doesn't matter what the Pakistani people think. They harbor terrorism...they may be in the line of fire!

    The only way we were able to get bin Laden was to NOT tell Pakistan what we were doing!

    Fuck political correctness in the war on terrorism. There is no balancing adherence to "playing fair" coming from the other side. We have no obligation to "be fair". We have an obligation to protect our children and grandchildren from radical Muslim terrorists!

    I guess we can't interrogate them any longer, so might as well kill them
