Predator Missile Nails High Level al-Quaida Operative

Operation Matador has been extremely effective in tracking down terrorist insurgents and either killing ot capturing them. In addition in the last two weeks 4 major terorist operatives have either been killed or captured. It's been a very good 14 days.

A senior al Qaeda operative was killed by a missile fired from a CIA Predator aircraft on the Pakistani side of the remote area near the Afghan border earlier this week, U.S. intelligence officials told ABC News.

Haitham al-Yemeni, a native of Yemen known for his bomb-making skills, had been tracked for some time in the hope that he would help lead the United States to al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, intelligence officials said. But with the recent capture in northwest Pakistan of Abu Faraj al-Libbi, thought to be al Qaeda's No. 3 man, officials worried al-Yemeni would soon go into hiding, and decided to take action.

These latest successes indicate these scumbags are running out of places to hide and our intelligence is getting better most likely due to increased local cooperation.
