U.S. official: Al-Qaeda No. 2 killed in Pakistan

WASHINGTON (AP) – U.S. and Pakistani officials said Saturday that al-Qaida's second-in-command, Atiyah Abd al-Rahman, has been killed in Pakistan, delivering another big blow to a terrorist group that the U.S. believes to be on the verge of defeat.

Since Navy SEALs stormed Osama bin Laden's compound and killed him in May, the Obama administration has been unusually frank in its assessment that al-Qaida is on the ropes, its leadership in disarray. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said last month that al-Qaida's defeat was within reach if the U.S. could mount a string of successful attacks.

"Now is the moment, following what happened with bin Laden, to put maximum pressure on them," Panetta said, "because I do believe that if we continue this effort we can really cripple al-Qaida as a major threat."


Great job by US forces. AlQaida is now being terrorized as we pick them off one at a time

We've been killing their number twos for years. They set em up and we knock em off.

It's like a running joke in al Qaeda. Who wants to be the new number two. Nobody....cuz it's a shit job. Just ask Biden.

We need to be killing more number ones.

WASHINGTON (AP) – U.S. and Pakistani officials said Saturday that al-Qaida's second-in-command, Atiyah Abd al-Rahman, has been killed in Pakistan, delivering another big blow to a terrorist group that the U.S. believes to be on the verge of defeat.

Al-Rahman has been thought to be dead before. Last year, there were reports that al-Rahman was killed in a drone strike; neither U.S. officials nor al-Qaida ever confirmed them. The officials who confirmed the death Saturday said it represented the consensus opinion of the U.S. government.

Born in Libya, al-Rahman joined bin Laden as a teenager in Afghanistan to fight the Soviet Union. source

Hm, so is he now living in the happy hunting grounds of Venezuela? /ever more skeptical

Well to be fair...conservatives think the Number one terrorist is President Obama.

They have a weird sense that way. Which is why the Conservative President Bush completely fucked up the "War on Terror". :lol:

So you just stop going after the one that replaced him?

I guess you're missing the point.

Why can't you just be glad that we got a very important terrorist leader?

Hell, if we got every single member of Al Qaeda except the leader, would you be complaining that we didn't get the leader even if he had no one left to lead?

This story is good news. Just enjoy it.
