This is Mustafa Ahmed Muhammad Uthman Abu al-Yazid, also known as Saeed al-Masri. He was al_Qaida's financial director.

This is at least the second time he has "died." He was supposedly also killed on August 13, 2008 in an airstrike in Bajaur.
The reports are saying that he possibly died last week and was killed in a strike by a US drone.

Yeah, it seems that there have been a lot of supposed terrorist figures that have been killed multiple times here lately.

I see that and I wonder why it is that only a small minority seem to notice this blatant error in unsubstantiated death rates among the alleged terrorists.

Sometimes I think that most people just dont care anymore. Perhaps that was the game plan all along. Use repeated scenarios ad nauseam until the masses develope apathy toward whatever agenda is set forth.

Personally such news goes against my grain in a very uncomfortable way. I joined the Army when I was brainwashed back in 2002, since then I have come to belive this war is an absolute farce extraordinaire. Knowing that puts me in the red zone where my temper is concerned in regards to my countries ridiculous administration, be they republican or democrat.

S&F by the way for bringing good points to the light.

Heh..I know. I even told him to remove my other thread on it. He beat me by like 15 mins earlier. He told me to redo mine and put it in here after I contacted him about it.
I do have a link to his thread on my original post at the top.

deja vu wasn't this story like one year ago or two years ago?



I guess the media loves playing a dead's guy name on it, just so they can call it news.

Really. How about that.

Am i the only one who gets the feeling that there are some in the propaganda machine who just make up names, or pick people with so many confusing and complicated aliases, that it looks like it is just made up?

I mean, there is no way i am taking their word for it that they killed some obscure guy in some obscure village. With so many reports being proven as outright lies, i don't believe a damned bit of it anymore. They may as well just not say anything. Seriously.

Or they could just keep doing what they are doing: blow up a random house, make up a name from an Arabian word salad, and then announce that you have taken out Al Qaeda's number "X" in command.

We are in an economic recession. Who the hell can afford war anymore? Let them club each other over the head all they want over there. We need to right the ship before we go saving anymore poor, nondemocratic souls.

I would think that if you wanted to claim that this guy has died at least once before then you would point towards some sort of evidence. Have you seen something or not? I am not going to take your word for it.

Post the stories. The article gives a name, if you think this name has come up before then prove it. The story must be out there on the internet somewhere.

The threat has come from Mustafa Abu al-Yazid, who has risen Phoenix-like from the ashes because only last summer the Pakistani military, anxious no doubt to get the Americans off their back, announced that the al Qaida leader had been killed in fighting on August 13, 2008, in the Bajaur tribal area along the Pakistani-Afghan frontier.

Like i said, they just make this crap up.

edit: forgot to mention... the story linked is from Feb 10, 2009.

I posted it in the wiki article link. It plainly says that he was supposedly killed in 2008.
