Top Al Qaeda Leader Abu Ubaida al-Masri Confirmed Dead in Pakistan
Awww, breaks my heart. No really, we won’t get to blow him up with a rocket. He may or may not have died of hepatitis, which can be caused by abusing alcohol/drugs or having contaminated anal sex. Now I am not rushing to judgment, but this guy was a terrorist, living in a cave, with a bunch of other terrorists, who likely needed some form of “release”…
FOXNews had the full story.
Al Qaeda operative and bomb expert Abu Ubaida al-Masri, one of the terror group’s top 10 leaders, is dead, a U.S. official confirmed to FOX News Wednesday.
Al-Masri was responsible for the organization’s external operations, meaning he plotted attacks outside the tribal areas of Pakistan.
A recent Los Angeles Times report described al-Masri as a “stocky Egyptian explosives expert with two missing fingers” who, as chief of external operations for Al Qaeda, has one of the most dangerous jobs in international terrorism.
The unidentified official said it is believed that al-Masri died of natural causes, possibly hepatitis, in Pakistan, and are staying away from a report that he was killed in a January CIA predator strike

Al-Masri is tied to two major terrorist attack plots. The first being the 2005 London subway bombing, in which al-Masri is credited with recruiting, training and directing the homicide bombers. The second attack is associated is the liquid explosives bomb plot to blow up transatlantic flights bound for the U.S. and Canada in the summer of 2006.
U.S. officials say al-Masri has probably been dead for several months, with no explanation as to why news of his death was not released sooner.
I don’t care that it was kept under wraps. This is war. We do not need to know every single mundane detail about every single terrorist killed. Save that for after the war. The media does enough to expose our troops to unnecessary harm. We don’t need to expose them to anymore by revealing wartime strategy.
Another piece of rat filth extinguished from the face of the Earth. Great news
