Great success!! Of course, those al Qaeda, they LOVE making explosives, both for vehicular use, and as a fashion accessory.
CAIRO, Egypt — Al Qaeda confirmed in a Web statement Sunday the death of a senior commander known as a top explosives and poisons expert, who is believed to have been killed in a U.S. airstrike in Pakistan last week.
The statement said Abu Khabab al-Masri and three other commanders were killed. It did not give details on when or how they were killed, but Pakistani authorities have said they believe al-Masri died in an American airstrike last Monday on a compound near the Afghan border.
Pakistani officials have said six people were killed in that strike, in the country’s lawless South Waziristan tribal region.
Al-Masri, an Egyptian militant whose real name is Midhat Mursi, had a $5 million bounty on his head from the United States. He is accused of training terrorists to use poisons and explosives, and is believed to have trained homicide bombers who killed 17 American sailors on the USS Cole in Yemen in 2000.
He is also believed to have helped run Al Qaeda’s Darunta training camp in eastern Afghanistan, until the camp was abandoned amid the 2001 U.S. invasion of the country. There he is thought to have conducted experiments in chemical and biological weapons, testing materials on dogs.
The Al Qaeda statement called al-Masri and the other three slain commanders “a group of heroes” and warned of vengeance for their deaths.
Yes, such heroes, that have inspired the use of women with downs syndrome, and children as suicide bombers. Vengeance? Look to Iraq, they had vengeance shoved down their throats, thanks to the United States Army, Marines, Navy and Air Force. Now they run away, cowards that they really are, to Africa.
