SANAA, Yemen – An airstrike Sunday killed a top Al Qaeda leader on the FBI’s most wanted list for his role in the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole warship, Yemeni officials said. The drone attack was carried out by the CIA, U.S. officials said.
Fahd al-Quso was hit by a missile as he stepped out of his vehicle, along with another Al Qaeda operative in the southern Shabwa province, Yemeni military officials said. They were speaking on condition of anonymity in accordance with military regulations.
The drone strike that killed Quso was carried out by the CIA, after an extended surveillance operation by the CIA and U.S. military, two U.S. officials said.
Why they didn’t just go in and get him alive since they knew where he was?
Oh, I forgot, they spent all that money on the murder drones and have to make use of them instead of the cost of capturing people alive and taking them to GITMO.
One day the CIA will kill people in the US with those damn things or who knows….maybe they’ll be stolen by someone and used against the CIA.
I was stopped a light and a murdered out, caged up, arrest cruiser made a left turn in front of me. I could have stolen his soul, but I was enjoying the beautiful day and spacing out while my camera sat in my lap. Ah, well.
It wasn’t Deputy Douchebag and his partner, it was some younger guy alone, but I still take it as an omen. lol
