JMHO, but smells like “somebody” just nailed a target with a Predator/JDAM/AGM-something-or-other.
If the report had come out with a number of women and children among the dead, the actual count would have included high-ranking AlQ, so guess we only got a couple squads of grunts.
Every little bit helps.
It's not like these are lone masterminds like Carlos the Jackal or a handful of individual cell members from the Bader-Meinhof Gang or JRA.
If Islamoids like Bin Laden & Co. have 4-5 wives and dozens of children in their retinue, shouldn't it be pretty easy to track them down?
