The down side is that there isn’t any intel gained from these strikes like they gained in taking down Bin-Laden in Pakistan. Obama uses these strikes so he doesn’t have to fill GITMO. However, I’m glad the US is taking these bastards down.
Abu Yahya Al-Libi, a top Al Qaeda operative was killed in a U.S. drone strike Monday, Fox News confirms.
Al-Libi, known as a rock star in the jihadist world with his videos and lectures going viral on the Web, was the intended target of the strike, U.S. officials said.
The strikes have been increasingly unpopular among Pakistanis, but successful in recent years at taking out terrorist leaders.
Pakistan has evidence that Al-Libi was in a house hit by the U.S. drone strike, but it was initially unclear whether he was killed.
A U.S. official later confirmed his death.
