No matter how long it takes, no matter where you hide or how many civilians you throw in our path, we will find you and we will get you.

Just hope that its really the guy and not one of his body doubles. We have a few guys in Gitmo who we thought were high mucky mucks who turned out to be passing. The Japanese term for these fakes is [i]kagemusha[/i] there is a name for them in Arabic too, lots of Islamic leaders have used them. There has been specualtion that Saddam Hussein is using phoneys as well.

Until there is a settlement in the middle east between the palestinians and Isrealis, there will be a bottomless pool where new leaders will crawl out of. This is a drop in the ocean.

IE, turn the entire region into one big self-lighting, glass-bottomed parking lot.

Yet if they had NOT caught this guy, the same people making that noise would be saying "We still haven't caught any of Al Quaeda's top leaders!" Can't please some people.

Oh! This is that "Unnamed high ranking AlQaida figure held in usdesclosed foreign country" that "Wasn't bin Ladin or his son but one of the top three or four people we are looking for" that was reported the day after Dasshole attacked Bush on the war on terrorism. Now he has a name. Looks like he is for real. Another very sad day in the minority leaders office tonight it would seem.

More details, from bloomberg.com 11/21 17:08 U.S. Captures Al-Qaeda Gulf Operations Head Al-Nashiri, AP Says By Todd Zeranski Washington, Nov. 21 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. said it has captured Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, a senior al-Qaeda operative that was the terrorist network's chief of operations in the Persian Gulf, the Associated Press reported, citing unidentified government officials. Al-Nashiri is a suspected mastermind of the 2000 attack on the USS Cole in Yemen, which killed 17 U.S. sailors. He is also suspected of involvement in other attacks, including the 1998 bombings of the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania that killed 224 people. Al-Nashiri is in his mid-30s, born in Saudi Arabia and is a close associate of Osama bin Laden, the news agency said. The officials told AP that al-Nashiri was captured in an unidentified country and is now in U.S. custody. He is the highest- level al-Qaeda official taken into custody since March, when the U.S. apprehended Abu Zubaydah, bin Laden's operations chief, in Pakistan. Officials also say al-Nashiri was behind the October bombing of a French oil tanker off the Yemeni coast, an attack that killed one sailor, the newspaper said. Al-Nashiri oversaw the purchase and transport of explosives, the leasing of safe houses and the planning and financing of attacks, the officials said. He also has been tied to failed plots to attack U.S. and U.K. warships passing through the Strait of Gibraltar, and the U.S. Fifth Fleet headquarters in Bahrain, the news agency said. U.S. officials in the past week said they had captured a senior operative they wouldn't identify. Homeland Security Director Tom Ridge said Sunday that the operative was cooperating with interrogators.
