NBC, MSNBC AND NEWS SERVICES

SAN'A, Yemen, Nov. 4 — Six al-Qaida suspects were killed Monday when the car they were traveling in blew up in northwest Yemen in an area where authorities believe the terror group is active, Yemeni security officials said. They included a suspect in the al-Qaida linked attack two years ago on the U.S. warship in a Yemeni port.

Let's hope so. Maybe the CIA's "teeth" will be allowed to grow back after 20 years of "dental work" by liberals.

Seems to me like we need to send whoever planted those bombs into Iraq and pay Saddam's cars a visit!

I heard part of a blurb on the news at the top of the hour which said that they thought this was an air strike. So we'll have to see what actually happened.

Its a better than average chance that this was the action of a member of her majesty's secret service...a Brit hit team. You won't hear another word about this incident in the press. And I would guess that we will hear of more such incidents, especially in the Pacific. The Aussies have a axe to grind...

"We are going to disrupt these people through preemptive attack ... we will deceive them, we will run psyops on them, at selected points and times they will be killed suddenly, in significant numbers, and without warning."

...We will make their couriers disappear. If we can find out how they eat, or play or receive rewards, or where they sleep -- we will go there and kill them by surprise." -- Retired Army Gen. Barry McCaffrey

Mostly likely, but a "Hush a Bomb" is also a possibility. (as in "Clear and Present Danger"). Spec Ops team also possible. Either way they have now found out their "true reward", and I'll wager there are no virgins involved, not even goats.

This is probably the sanitized version.

Reality probably, was that these guys were blown up after a few days of frank and ernest interrogation by our guys or SAS.

After they sang and talked for days, they were loaded into the car. They were tied up and unable to move. A timer with a bomb was set on the dashboard and the timer was started for the worst 11 minutes of their life.

The Clock was set at 9 o'clock and the bomb went off at 11 minutes after 9. That was one 9/11 they didn't cheer.

Every al Qaeda thug terrorist who had a role in our 9/11 or cheered it should meet Allah via my scene.

Chain, tie, or wrap them up after they have been debriefed to find more of their fellow scum.

Then set a clock at 9 o'clock with a timer ready to go off at 9:11. Put the clock where they can see it. Inform them what will happen at 9:11. Then leave.

To really rub it in, the bomb doesn't go off at 9:11. They hear the Star Spangle Banner being played.

Then a woman's voice in their language starts a count down saying that wild pigs await their arrival in hell. She starts the countdown and they hear wild pigs oinking and grunting. Just before the bomb goes off, her voice says "Enjoy your eternity in hell, you maggots! The pigs of hell are ready for you."

Just a polite reminder to him that he forgot to keep his appointment with death in the Cole bombing.

"This is White Six, Oklahoma Alpha Alpha."

An airmen's response after multiple hits on Iraqi targets meaning total destruction of intended targets with no friendly casualties (w/regards to the massive air campaign in Iraq in early '90)

A Guiness will be fine.

O.K., O.K., I cheated.

Six al-Qaida suspects were killed, including a top operative of Osama bin Laden, when their car was blasted with a Hellfire missile fired from a CIA-operated drone in northwest Yemen, U.S. officials told NBC News on Monday.

Looks like it was the US.

If it was a missile strike maybe the CIA used a Predator. I don't think that the CIA has any JagOff Pink Panty lawyers leftover from the Jake Reno days like our military had when we attacked Afghanistan.

To al Qaeda thugs, you can't hide nor can you run. Prepare to go one a one way trip to hell.

Ernest, if this elimination of these scumbags is true, this just might be called preemptive.
