Thanks, you know what was the worst part? The names aren't John, Bill or Steve. And every reporter has their special way of spelling them. And the internet is so unforgiving..... argh! Thanks again. If you hear of updates, please let me know and I'll keep this thread current.

Wow, nice work. Looks like we are past the halfway point, despite what the media doesn't tell us.

Let Freedom ring
Let the blackhawk sing
Let the whole world know that today
Is a day of reckoning
Let the weak be strong
Prove the left is wrong
Time to bomb away
Let the guilty pay
It's Indy Pendance Day

That's more than one a month. That's a great success rate considering their circle of friends and places to hide worldwide. How many have you found?

Thanks for the ping. I just love that our President is marking them off of his list.

I am still waiting for the Greensboro paper to do some in depth investigative journalism on Khalid Shikh Mohammed's three years at NC A&T. So far only that he was quiet and a good student. Yuk!

Here is all I know, because the networks didn't carry the hearings today with Ashcroft.

On Fox News, I heard them doing a story about how rough that hearing was today -- and they said Ashcroft fought back, surprising the Demorats with a name of a guy who had not previously been announced.

The rerun of the hearing is just starting on CSPAN, so I will try to catch it.

Thanks for the update. When we hear of a new capture or kill (I love the kills), I'll add it. This has been a great learning exercise. You wouldn't believe all the alias's they have. I got a little dizzy cross referencing them. I don't know for sure, but I believe at least two different names could be the the same person.

Won't it be nice when the day happens we get equal media coverage? With the advent of computers and the internet, the liberals are worried. I just read something about the number of people who turn to the internet for their first source of news is increasing almost at an exponential rate.

Unfortunately, the Al-Masri killed in Lebanon is NOT the Abdullah Ahmed Abdullah listed on the FBI's most wanted list. I thought it was him when the story first came but I emailed debka.com and they said these are two different people.

Just from my research, I was questioning some of the identities. Some could be the same, some could not. These terrorists have so many alias's. And many of the names are nearly the same. Abdullah Ahmed Abdullah was one that I struggled with. I have to believe the government has a better list than what I put together from the internet.
