I think history repeats itself.

How many times have we seen this kind of thing happen in recent history?

The USA will ALWAYS need a boogie man to scare the public, justify illegal wars and enforce draconian laws.

Remember the Patriot act, anyone?

This makes me wonder what else is in store for the United States.

Whatever, the gist is plain enough to see.....
Im thinking its Osamas turn at resurection maybe next......?
Or maybe, they just have this dart board with random pictures on it........hmmm?
The whole psycho drama "war on terror" getting pretty dam phoney....
If they have to keep standing up these strawmen , and knocking them down to make a show....well, it really doesent matter if the guy is a terrorist or a methodist does it?
As long as he looks "islamically has a beard...and they tell us hes a bad guy....we just go along....
It could be, (and often is, aparently) some innocent Afghani peasant.....whos to ever know?
after all, nothing much left after a hellfire missile strike.....yay we killed him again!
Along with a host of innocents...............

Yemeni defense minister survives apparent assassination attempt

The bombing comes one day after Yemeni forces said they killed Said al-Shihri, second in command of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.

If DNA testing confirms his death, it "would be a deeply significant blow against AQAP," CNN terrorism analyst Paul Cruickshank said.

From another source:

There were conflicting reports on how Shehri died.

A Yemeni security source said Shehri was killed in an operation last Wednesday in the Hadramout that was thought to have been carried out by a US drone, rather than the Yemeni military.

The source said another Saudi and an Iraqi national were among the others killed.

US officials declined to comment on whether a drone strike had occurred.

US officials described Shehri as one of the most important al Qaeda-linked militants to be released from the Guantanamo detention facility, where he was taken in January 2002 after being handed over by Pakistan to U.S. authorities.

Hope this helps.
