A senior Qaeda militant in Yemen linked to the deadly bombing of an American warship there in 2000 was killed in an airstrike on Sunday, the Yemeni government said, in the latest sign of an escalating American campaign to counter the terrorist threat there.
Yemeni authorities said the militant, Fahd Mohammed Ahmed al-Quso, 37, who has been on the F.B.I.s Most Wanted list in connection with the bombing of the Navy destroyer Cole that killed 17 sailors in October 2000, died in the strike in Shabwa Province in one of the rugged tribal areas controlled by insurgents.
The Yemen Embassy here in Washington described him as a leading figure in the terrorist organization Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, using the affiliates full name.

“Yet even as Yemeni officials were announcing Mr. Qusos death, American officials said they needed a few days to confirm what they said was a drone strike and any casualties.”
Sounds like he’s only mostly dead.

Yeah. He's just a little bit to the left of a "community organizer."

He’s really double secret dead. I heard that from Dean Wormser, and he should know.
I love things that go “boom” in the night (and day) and in-between.
Looks like “Oso” is “Oh so dead”.
A real man of “pieces”.
I don’t think that he is going to get a head in his job any more.
...and another one bites the dust!

That just ruined his chances of becoming mayor of Chicago.
Now kill his family.
Kill his dog.
Kill his wife.
Kill his children.
And kill everyone who lives in the general a.o.

He would have been 25 in 2000, maybe just 24. Mastermind? Old enough to shave, more likely. Zero needs a poll boost, it seems.
