Another One Bites The Dust

Middle East: The worldwide war on terror has scored a major victory with the death of the terrorist, mass murder and Hezbollah chieftain responsible for the deaths of hundreds of U.S. Marines and Israeli citizens.


Imad Mughniyeh is not a name most Americans are familiar with, though they should be. He was among those indicted in the U.S. for the 1985 hijacking of a TWA airliner in which a U.S. Navy diver was killed. Robert Stethem was brutally beaten, murdered and dumped on an airport tarmac in Beirut, Lebanon.

Before 9/11, Mughniyeh was responsible for the deaths of more Americans than any living person, starting with the bombing of the American Embassy in Beirut in April 1983, killing 63 people. Six months later, he masterminded the bombing of the Marine barracks in Beirut, which killed 241 Americans.

In 1984, he was behind the bombing of the U.S. Embassy annex in Beirut, killing 14. He was the reputed leader of a group that held Americans hostage in Lebanon. The hostages included Terry Anderson, the former Associated Press chief Middle East correspondent who was held six years.

Israelis were another favorite target for this terrorist killer. Israel believes he was the brains behind the 1992 bombing of the Israeli Embassy in Argentina in which 29 people were killed and the bombing of a Jewish Center in Buenos Aires two years later that killed 95. Mughniyeh was a very busy man.

Hezbollah issued a ritual condemnation of Israel for his death, but Tel Aviv denies it. Mughniyeh was on an FBI wanted list with a $25 million bounty on his head. That's an amount reserved for those at the Osama bin Laden level.

OK, why did it take this long?
