CIA drone said to kill al-Qaida operative

BREAKING NEWS on MSNBC.com:

NBC News has confirmed that a CIA Predator drone has killed al-Qaida operative Haitham al-Yemeni in the remote northwest part of Pakistan where other members of the militant group are believed to be hiding. A U.S. official confirmed that al-Yemeni is a senior al-Qaida member.

Information leading to the hit is thought to be connected to the recent capture of Abu Faraj al-Libbi, described as al-Qaida’s No. 3, in northwest Pakistan on May 2. The CIA said Friday it would not confirm, deny or comment in any way on the operation.

I can see it now:

EXT. – LANGLEY – EVENING

Two CIA AGENTS, dressed in black suits and wearing dark glasses, shake their heads.

FIRST AGENT: “We can neither confirm nor deny this story.”

SECOND AGENT: “That’s right. Nothing to tell.”

The two agents exchange a high-five. Inside, some whoops and hollers.

FADE OUT.

I love it when movies end on a happy note.

Debbye eats this Predator+Hellfire stuff up.

UPDATE: You know, it just finally dawned on me that it’s Friday the 13th. Why hasn’t anyone been saying anything about that?

I’ll bet Haitham al-Yemeni forgot, too.

  1. Thanks for the tip, and you’re right: I love this stuff. The enemy has gone from thinking we are weaker than we were to thinking we’re downright omnipotent and omnipresent, which is a powerful tool for us. Next we got to come up with a credible rumour about satellites that can take DNA samples and search for matches from the sky.
