No wonder Egypt is in crisis. The US killed their pharaoh.

Ya know, you gotta hand it to an organization that can pretty much guarantee promotions.

No glass ceilings there. Probably because most of them have already been blown up.

While al-Shihri may not have been a member of the core al Qaeda organization's leadership, his death is a serious blow to what many analysts consider the group's most dangerous franchise.

"These are the Saudi loyalists that bin Laden trusted the most," explained CBS News senior correspondent John Miller on CBS This Morning. "They have been, out of all the al Qaeda affiliates, the ones that have been the most effective in targeting America."


So...why is this "asinine?"

Aren't these automatically filled?

If you delete row 2 on a spreadsheet, everything moves up.

Does Al Qaeda use Excel for their organization?   If they should, this could be a boost to MS's PR.   Top worldwide organization is using their products.

Or, perhaps not.

I didn't think they were into those back-door shenanigans.

Lots of growth potential in the AL-Q, upper management slots opening up every day!

It's a booming industry for sure.

Where is Ayman al-Zawahiri?  That would be news.

Limitless upward potential.  And outwards, and downwards...

I wonder who number 2 works for.

They have more "top men" than a gay orgy.

I don't understand the asinine tag.

You want that job? You thought your cunning plan all the way through?

"Al-Shihri, also known as Abu Sufyan al-Azdi, fought in Afghanistan and spent six years in Guantanamo. He was returned to Saudi Arabia in late 2007 and later fled to Yemen to join the al Qaeda branch there."

Good thing we thought he was so unimportant that we let him go... we almost missed the opportunity to make another drone strike.

Does the meme work anymore? Should we vote on who the number one is? Do we assume Barrack Hussein is or something?

Where is the Al Queda org chart?

Now, that OBL is dead, isn't everyone number one then?

So we caught him in Afghanistan farked him up more in gitmo then sent him back out to Saud/Yemen to run a terror cell that then did things like influence the Boston bombing then killed him with a drone.

That is quite the circle of life.

Guantanamo Bay did a lot of radicalizing people. A lot of the people that were taken there were innocent and had nothing to do with Al Qaeda. If I were innocent and taken to a prison thousands of miles away from my home for a few years and tortured, when I was released I may be just a little pissed at the people that held me.

I would be interested in your sources on this statement.  I bet it is an interesting read.

Yeah I wouldnt be suprised about that either. Years ago I think there was a fark story about a kid that was out with his herd of goats herding or whatever it is you do with goats and he got caught up in a sweep and ended up in Gitmo. I think after a few years he was let go.

Yet in 2006, after many innocents had already been released, analysis of Pentagon data on 517 prisoners by Seton Hall University found 55% were determined not to have committed any hostile acts against the US or its allies, and only 8% were alleged to have had any kind of affiliation with al-Qaeda.

And if I highlight the column do I get the sum of all fears?

Best headline for this was a couple of years ago mentioning they would need to go to AAAl-Qaeda for a replacement.

This has gone from rediculous to funny. Go ahead, set the pins up again and we'll knock em down.

Right, so after getting released Gitmo, you're pretty angry about being falsely accused of being an enemy combatant and denied any sort of a speedy civilian trial... so you only THEN go join al-Qaeda with such fervor that you rise to the #2 spot in barely half a decade. Naturally.

/not saying innocent people weren't sent there, but the majority sent were not innocent
//you don't have to overtly commit hostile acts yourself to be a major terrorist shiathead

So, how does this affect their pre-season ranking, and chance for a Bowl Bid?

#2 for Al Qaeda has to be like the most dangerous job in the world they've went through like 586 of them in the last 10 years

Holding a prisoner is more to do with havibg evidence against it that you can use to bring charges and prosecute. Unless you live somewhere like Saudi Arabia or the old Soviet Union. You wouldn't want that for your country would you?
 
2013-07-18 04:20:35 AM
Whenever I see this "Al Qaeda's #2 killed" stuff, I always think of that scene in Full Metal Jacket where Joker's told to fabricate a story about killing an enemy officer.
 
2013-07-18 11:58:45 AM
