Back in 2005, the US had killed it's 6th No. 3 Al Qaeda leader.



May 14, 2005

WASHINGTON: The United States has netted another al-Qaeda No.3, the sixth No.3 to be downed dead or alive in its war on terrorism.

JUNE 1, 2010

WASHINGTON—The strike that killed al Qaeda's third in command deprives the group of a critical link to its affiliates as well as a crucial connection between al Qaeda's top leaders and its foot soldiers.

By always having a third, you never have to get the first, and there's always someone to kill. What a joke.

I love it when they get a "number."

As if nobody will ever replace him?

Getting "number 3" or even "number 1" is about as relevant as getting "number 748."

I wonder if these people with their numbers actually believe that getting "number 1" would do anything whatsoever to the organization?

After all, Tookie is dead and the Crips just keep on bangin'

Quite simple really

Each time you kill no 3 his successor becomes the new number 3.

This isn't the Prisoner you know.

With any heirachical organisation that is appended numbers the numbers become fluid. Its not like they say 6 times we killed Mr Al Fazi, rather we killed the 6 people who occupied the post of no3 in the organisation.

ETA - the premise of the ops Title is wrong

There will always be a number 3 - as long as the organisation exists - just that the person will change.

You have to understand that most politicians can't count beyond three. In fact, one of my very young grandchildren only counts to3. To him, 3 means "much more than 2". Now that I think of it, my grandchild could do the job of a politician, without all the harm. Just think, we'd never have a deficit more than $3.00.

Number 4 you are now Number 3.
Dang, I just finished stenciling 4 on all my drawers and socks.

And as you can see we are trying very hard to flush out who ever is a member of that organisation, by being present in Afghanistan. We shoot at everyone who shoots at us.
Who every shoots at us is a member of the organisation! Right???

Meanwhile, at least 5 No .2 Al Qaeda have been killed or captured.

So, if a No. 2 and a No. 3 is killed, does that mean an No. 4 becomes Bin Ladens Main Man? The current No. 2 was at least originally a No. 10, then the No. 3 Killed today would have to have originally been a No. 20, because there have been No. 4's and 5's killed too.

Can't capture, or kill No. 1 though.

Was this number 3 processed on some trial before he was executed?

What?? You want rights? How dare you fight against the people killing your family. Meanwhile, we'll set some sneaky bombs, and make it look like they are blowing each other up. the place is in chaos, and GOD (Guns, Oil, Drugs) forbid that place get out of control. Too much oil and opium is at stake here.

The number one on the list should be the CIA and number two should be ISI.

CIA will never be found because they are stationed in the US where the Americans are not looking

I'd like to hear the converstation with the current #4.

Number 1: "Hey #4...you've been promoted...they got #3"

Number 4: "Ah...no thanks...I hear #5 has been doing a really good job lately...maybe he should take the #3 spot"

Number 1: "No no...I insist...you have done a great job as #4...you deserve it"

Number 4: "WHY DO YOU HATE ME????"
