    Al-Qaeda commander Abu Yahya al-Libi killed - US officials
    5 June 2012 : Libi had gravitas as a longstanding member of al-Qaeda's leadership, the US official said

    Al-Libi death a major blow for al Qaeda
    June 5th, 2012 : Abu Yahya al-Libi is universally admired in jihadist circles and among the younger generation of al Qaeda leaders. Charismatic, intelligent, a religious scholar - and with the extra qualification of having escaped from U.S. custody in Afghanistan – his loss is "a cataclysmic blow" to al Qaeda, according to analysts who follow the group.

    I offer these only rarely. But, this calls for a little celebration, and another dose of <<grumble, grumble>> begrudging honesty.

    Another good job by the Obama Administration and the U.S. military.

    Yay, America!
