A Good Jihadi

We killed the number 2 al Qaeda in Iraq leader, a Moroccan called Abu Qaswarah:

The man, who the military said was known as Abu Qaswarah, died Oct. 5 during a raid on a building in the northern city of Mosul that served as a major "command and control location" for the region. Four other insurgents were killed in the operation, the U.S. said.

I assume we spent the last ten days exploiting intelligence we gained when we killed the terrorist.

It was a great honor to hold high slots in al Qaeda back when beheadings and chlorine poison gas bombs were on your daily agenda. Now, the job seems to be running until we kill them.

Which is good. The only good jihadi is a dead jihadi.
