SNIPPET: "An al Qaeda leader wanted by the US for a string of deadly attacks has been named the new leader of terror group's network in East Africa.
Fazul Abdullah Mohammed, one of several al Qaeda leaders charged with carrying out the 1998 bombings of the US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, was appointed the leader of al Qaeda in the Horn of Africa.
Fazul was "inaugurated" during an open ceremony in the southern city of Kismayo, according to a translation received by The Long War Journal of an article posted Waaga Cusub, a website operated by the Hawiye clan, which supports the Somali insurgency. He "delivered his longest speech delivered his longest speech [sic]," the website reported.
During his speech, Fazul said he was appointed by Osama bin Laden and praised his predecessor, Saleh Ali Saleh Nabhan, who was killed during a US special operations raid in southern Somalia in mid-September.
"Saleh was a very careful person, he was a hero and a creative man," Fazul said. "He was an expert of Information Technology and politics. I am a military man, and was in charge of the forces. I will honestly perform my duties following my appointment to this new big position by Sheikh Osama bin Ladin (Allah save him)."
Fazul admitted to carrying out the 1998 suicide bombings of the US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, which killed more than 200 people and wounded thousands more. He received sanctuary from Aden Hashi Ayro, the former military commander of Shabaab who was killed by the US in a strike in May 2008, and Sheikh Mukhtar Abu Zubayr, the spiritual leader of Shabaab."

ON THE INTERNET:
Out of morbid curiousity, I can’t help but wonder what kind of benefit and retirement package al Queda offers.
I wouldn’t know.
My guess is that they get the following options:
1. a slow boat to hell
2. a quick trip to hell
Hey Bush, take out um, oh it’s too late. Nevermind.
Why does Al Qaeda still exist? Didn’t they hear that we elected Obama?
Fazul beat out Keith Olbermann.
English spelling: "TARGET"...
72 virgin goats.
good point but do they have a 401K?
Oh please let us find out that his nickname is Pasta.
Are you thinking something like fazuli linguini or fazuli clamati al dente?
Just plain old workingman’s pasta fazul. Carmine’s makes it with sausage. **kissing fingertips toward Broadway**
Smiling at you.
My guess is that a Predator or GlobalHawk was orbiting overhead ready to launch.......’ready’ is the key word....with the Zer0 administration, ‘ready’ turned out to be ‘nuh unhhh’......
10 to 1 they have shares in any George Soros endeavor
no.....not Soros silly me , Haaavard Alumni-gifts and bequests
Maybe al Queda does give 401ks.
In which case, the libs could argue that they’re fighting al Queda by destroying their investments.
