Ayman al-Zawahri, the newly appointed chief of al-Qaida, lacks the charisma and operational skills of Osama bin Laden as a terror leader, Defense Secretary Robert Gates said Thursday.

But he said the selection of al-Qaida's former No. 2 to take bin Laden's place is a reminder that the terror group is still out there and must be pursued.


Embolden done by me.

All right friends...

Who would have any authority to "appoint" a new chief?

My own opinion of who could appoint a new chief? None other than the current Chief of CIA.

I'll return after dinner guys and gals!

Peace!

Gates quipped, "It's probably tough to count votes when you're in a cave."


Now why would we believe these terrorists are still hiding in caves when Pakistan is full of 'compounds' that is now known for harboring fugitives of Justice?

I'm going off the spin placed by the media about OBL anyway.

Who can you trust if it's not your own gut?

Hopefully though Al-Qaeda will be rid but now the ideology cannot go away.

Gates says this guy is no "Osama Bin Laden"? All the news is beginning to read like the onion.

what does gates mean. the new leader is not an old man watching videos of himself on cnn in a million dollar compound with no direct role in planning and executing missions.

the new leader is actually pro active and in direct control of al qaeda and not just a figurehead like osama was the last 10 years.

this makes al qaeda more dangerous. but al zawqhari is not in real control, he's more worried about getting assassinated than actually planning missions.

if an unknown actually takes control of al qaeda and wants to make a name for himself, then be prepared for more attacks.

Yeah.

So it's the job of SOD to keep the sheeple penned-up in fear for their life now a days.

I feared far less during the freaking "Cold-war." And I was afraid of my own shadow then!

Meh, I no longer entertain fear. It's aggravation that I deal with these days...I use ATS as an out-let.

Thanks for tolerating me.

Agreed. And acknowledge that Gates is the conveyor to spread such fear. Gates is on the wrong team if you ask me.

He should post photos of Al-Qaeda members that have thus far been terminated. If he had the integrity...

Either way they're (Al-Qaeda) still on the pay-roll, I'm sure.

If you notice closely, you will see he already has a built in target on his forehead.

Maybe the mark of Cain.

Al Zawahri is a suspected terrorist.
Robert Gates is a former Iran-Contra conspirator.
I have a hard time taking his word on anything after his past CIA involvement.

Wow. I learn something new every day...Damn.

What I find prevalent today is that so many officials get promoted instead of "corrected/rehabilitated."

Yep, that's how it works. You get promoted for incompetency and being a consistent liar. Loyalty to the elites is the bottom line. Stray from the path and your fired, or dead.
It never ceases to amaze me how these people who broke multiple laws, lied to Congress and the American people are still in government or working for Corporations that do contracts for them - Stansfield Turner, Oliver North, Gates, John Poindexter (worked for DARPA), Richard Secord, Robert Mcfarlane - all of them made out like bandits ( or is that drug kingpins?). Disgusting and very telling of what really goes on in our government and has since the 70's or maybe earlier.

Remember, when they fail they ALWAYS get more money to "solve the problem"

Wonder why we're broke?

With all due respect Ask The Animals, how in the heck does lying to Congress fit into your sense
of judgement in this day and age? I don't know if you have noticed, but Congress has perfected that
method into an artform. $400.00 Haircut anyone?

Rumsfeld Rules as Quoted, "Washington,D.C. is sixty square miles surrounded by reality.



Need I mention the Governator,Weiner,Edwards, or any other orgy members?
C'mon you blame intelligence? That would be like blaming yourself. Your smarter than that.
See you at the fishing hole.

I don't know how I found that pix, it was random chance and velocity. But I knew it would make you
(and I hope others) enjoy some comic relief. That seems to be a cultural hotspot these days, some
folks can't take a joke. Generally a sign of insecurity and lack of confidence.

Heck, people bust my rocks all the time,and my beliefs too.

I can laugh along with it because my rocks and beliefs are not too fragile for humor.
