Drone Kills Top Qaida Cleric in Yemen
[An Nahar] A drone strike in the eastern Yemeni province of Shabwa last month killed the top religious holy man for al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, a source close to AQAP said on Tuesday.

"A drone strike had targeted Sheikh Adel al-Abab's vehicle but he escaped and fled to a mountainous region where a raid by another drone killed him immediately," the source told Agence La Belle France Presse on condition of anonymity.

Abab had graduated from an Islamic studies center, the Dawa Center, in Sanaa and had served as AQAP's top religious holy man.

U.S. drone strikes against al-Qaeda forces of Evil are frequent in Yemen, home to the franchise seen by the United States as the jihadist network's deadliest and most active.

AQAP is led by Nasser al-Wuhayshi, who in July 2011 reaffirmed the group's allegiance to Ayman al-Zawahiri

U.S. drones strikes in Yemen nearly tripled in 2012 compared with 2011, from 18 to 53, according to the New America Foundation, a Washington-based think-tank.

#6  Too bad you can't interrogate bits of DNA and strands of charred flesh.

On the other hand, Obambi doesn't have to deal with the rogue whiney butts in DOJ or DOS about detainees when he just blows them up.

Still I wonder what kind of neat stuff we could have rung out of this knucklehead.

#3  The thought occurs to me that every time they slam their foreheads down to create the bump, they are causing a small concussion. And we all know what repeated small concussions cause...
