You can read the following and especially note the Al Qaeda and Taliban confirmation of al Masri’s death–our media are now receiving AND reporting without skepticism PRESS RELEASES FROM AL QAEDA!!! Al Masri has been confirmed dead for some time. I think this is the same weapons expert whose death has been previously reported (see here and here). Obviously some of the names of these terrorists are similar so I’m checking it out.
If it’s the same guy who need to know he’s responsible for the London tube bombings.
SOMEbody died in the Predator attack. If al Masri isn’t the most recent target, then who did we take out?
Here’s the recent update from AFP:
WASHINGTON (AFP) — US intelligence has no reason to believe Al-Qaeda’s number two was killed or wounded in a recent missile attack in Pakistan, US officials said Monday.
CBS News reported Friday that it had obtained an intercepted message from a Taliban commander urgently requesting a doctor to treat Ayman al-Zawahiri, an Egyptian believed to be Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden’s right-hand man.
“There is no reason at this point to be believe that Zawahiri has been killed or injured,” a US intelligence official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.
A US counter-terrorism official also said there was no evidence that Zawahiri was wounded or killed.
“There is nothing out there that lends any credence to that,” the official said, also insisting on anonymity.
Pakistan’s Taliban movement issued a vehement denial Saturday that Zawahiri was killed or wounded in the July 28 missile strike.
Al-Qaeda in a statement posted on an Islamist website acknowledged that the strike killed an Al-Qaeda weapons expert, Midhat Mursi al-Sayid Umar, also known as Abu al-Khabab al-Masri.
