    Reports surfaced Saturday that U.S. forces killed a senior al Qaeda commander, handing President Obama another battlefield victory ahead of a major strategy review.

    Ilyas Kashmiri -- considered as on the short list to replace Osama bin Laden.

    When combined with the bin Laden killing, eliminating Kashmiri via a remotely piloted drone could give new fuel to the increasing number of lawmakers in both parties and military experts who say a smaller -- but lethally tailored -- U.S. force in Afghanistan would suffice.

    the only battlefield he's ever been on is called a golf course, 71 rounds of golf since he got in office and he gets his ass kicked too. I can't wait til Boehner kick it..
