Al-Qaeda Says 2 Top Terrorists Are Dead

From a tear-stained Associated Press:

A handout picture released by the Iraqi Prime Minister’s Office on April 19, allegedly shows a picture of Al-Qaeda leader in Iraq Abu Omar al-Baghdadi in an orange suit and holding a placard with the name "Hamed Dawud Mohammed al-Zawi".

Al-Qaida in Iraq confirms deaths of top 2 figures

BAGHDAD (AP) — An al-Qaida front group in Iraq has confirmed the killing of its two top leaders but vowed in a statement that its members were not cowed by their death and would continue to fight.

"After a long journey filled with sacrifices and fighting falsehood and its representatives, two knights have dismounted to join the group of martyrs," the statement said. "We announce that the Muslim nation has lost two of the leaders of jihad, and two of its men, who are only known as heroes on the path of jihad."

Gosh, the Taliban manage to make murdering innocent people for no good reason sound positively wonderful.

The four-page statement by the Islamic State of Iraq was posted on a militant website early Sunday.

It concluded: "The war is still ongoing, and the favorable outcome will be for the pious."

And what could be more pious than blowing up your fellow Muslims?

The statement comes a week after Iraqi and U.S. security forces raided a safe house near Tikrit, Saddam Hussein’s hometown north of Baghdad, killing Abu Omar al-Baghdadi and Abu Ayyub al-Masri.

The Islamic State of Iraq is an offshoot of al-Qaida in Iraq. Al-Baghdadi was its self-described leader and was so elusive that at times U.S. officials questioned whether he was a real person or merely a composite of a terrorist to give an Iraqi face to an organization led primarily by foreigners

Notice now it’s “US officials” who questioned whether Al-Baghdadi was a real person or not. And not our all-knowing watchdog media.

The same all-knowing watchdog media that assured us that there was no such thing as “the Islamic State of Iraq” (aka Al-Qaeda in Iraq).

"Commit to what those two leaders stood for," the statement says. "Transform the blood of those two leaders into light and fire – a light which will illuminate the path before you and facilitate your ability of speech, and a fire against the enemies of the creed and the religion." …

And we thought it wasn’t a religious war.

    At a rate of exterminating about 10,000 vermin a year, cleaning out the cessppol is going to take over thousand years or more unless we get serious about it.

IMO!

    Well, two down – 1,200,000,000 to go. Of course, this number would be small if some muslims would renounce the violence done by the jihadists – since they haven’t I include them as part of the problem.
