    Al-Qaida's Yemen media chief dies in US drone attack


    Egyptian-born Ibrahim al-Bana and six others killed in second airstrike to target group in as many weeks

    A US air strike has killed the media chief for al-Qaida's Yemeni branch along with six other militants, the Ministry of Defence said on Saturday, in the second high-profile American missile attack in as many weeks to target the terror group in the country.


    A ministry statement said Egyptian-born Ibrahim al-Bana and six other militants were killed in the south-eastern province of Shabwa on Friday night. Security officials said an American drone carried out the airstrike, which was one of five overnight strikes that targeted suspected al-Qaida positions in Shabwa and the neighbouring province of Abyan in Yemen's largely lawless south.


    Friday's missile attack came two weeks after a US drone strike killed prominent American-born cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, a gifted Muslim preacher and savvy internet operator who became a powerful al-Qaida tool for recruiting in the West. Also killed was Samir Khan, a Pakistani-American who was a propagandist for Yemen's al-Qaida branch: al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula.

    This, folks, is what a strong, confident, competent Commander in Chief looks like!

    Thank you, President Obama!

    I'd like to congratulate the military, and those unsung heroes that track these terrorists and do the hard job, every day, every night so that some fucking fools can congratulate a President.

    The President of the United States is Commander in Chief of the military.

    It is so unfortunate that so many conservatives are ignorant of the Constitution of the United States. But then again, it is a document authored by Liberals and detested by many Conservatives. Like George W. Bush, who called it a "damned piece of paper".

    Personally, I find it unsurprising that, even with something like our military and their heroic action... you insist on trivializing it for your pathetic partisan point scoring. You are a disgusting individual. And.... you are a liar.... and, I suspect, a drunk.

    You made the claim, back it up. Usually, only Progressives talk about the Constitution that way. You made me curious. :D
