Al-Qaeda Suffers Serious Blow
"If you're going to cut an innocent Amercian's head off on camera, cover up your face with a towel!"
Al-Qaeda's two top leaders were killed on Sunday in Iraq, signaling a severe crimp in their operation's overall security. Abu Ayyub al-Masri and Abu Omar al-Baghdadi, both of whom took over after the Master of Beheading, Abu Mussab al-Zarqawi, was blown to bits in an air raid, were killed during a Coalition led raid. Will their stamping out signal the end of al-Qaeda's effectiveness in Iraq? Since other similarly minded radicals will surely take their place, probably not. But the group's effectiveness to wage their brutal version of war against both the west and Judeo-Christians in general, has clearly been compromised. For more on the story.
