Seems the #1 is actively taking down a country while droning out his competition. What a peach with apologies to peaches.

Bush apparently. From the story: "Al-Shihri, also known as Abu Sufyan al-Azdi, fought in Afghanistan and spent six years in Guantanamo. He was returned to Saudi Arabia in late 2007 and later fled to Yemen to join the al-Qaida branch there."

So if your boss calls you and says, "Good news, Abdul. You're being promoted to my number two man" then you really shouldn't ask what the pension plan is like?

In the early days of the Afghanistan / Iraq wars the wife and I use to joke that the two most dangerous jobs in the world were #2 guy in Al Qaeda and bodyguard for Pakistan's President Musharraf. Might need to update it to add anyone with the real info on Benghazi.

The pension plan looks great on the books though. Hundreds have paid in; no one has ever drawn a benefit check.

“RE: then you really shouldn’t ask what the pension plan is like?

An 18-year-old suicide bomber blew himself up and appeared before Allah.

He said, “Oh, Allah, I did your bidding, but I have a request. Since I’m only 18 and spent all my time in terrorist training school, I never was with a woman. So, instead of 72 virgins, can I have 72 prostitutes?”

Allah regarded him for a moment, then replied, “Actually, the 72 virgins are here in heaven because people like you murdered them before they could experience the pleasure of sex. So you’re here to service them. Since they’re virgins, they’re quite sexually hungry; and frankly, you’ll be on a constant and very exhausting duty.”

The bomber responded, “Well, I guess I can live with that. How hard can it be to keep 72 women satisfied for all eternity?”

Allah replied quizzing, “Who told you they were women?”

“In the video, al-Robaish said al-Shihri was hit by the drone while speaking on his mobile telephone in the province of Saadah, north of the Yemeni capital of Sanaa.”

Sounds like the microchip GPS locator transponders implanted in all Gitmo released prisoners by NSA/CIA is working as planned.

Which locator transponder version do you think that was? My guess is that it was the rectal one but could have been a molar, possibly the belly button or livestock ear tag one?

All of the above and of course the penile/prostate implant and the brain implant via the nasal septum.

“The word on the street is that it was said to be a penile implant.”

You are probably correct. A friend who used to be a doctor for one of the 3 letter intel groups, said that the implants, multiple microscopic transponders were inserted via the penis. Their final end organ targets were the inner lining of the penis, their prostate gland and testicles. He said the only way to remove all of the micro transponders was a total removal all male sex organs.

The operations were done after the Gitmo Islamos went to sleep. Our docs used Versed IV*, which causes amnesia before the iv, during the procedure and afterwards. So they Gitmo Islamos have no recall until they are back home and use a cell phone or meet with their buds. Then, Kaboom!

*Millions of Americans get Versed IV each year for endoscopic views of their colons, entire GI tract, other invasive procedures, out patient procedures and surgeries.
Most if not all have zero recall of anything happening.
