The AP is reporting that in the same week that President Barack Obama accepted the Nobel Peace prize, the military was actively striking out at one of the leaders of the terrorist group al-Qaeda, organized and financed by Osama Bin Laden.

Senior al-Qaeda operations planner Saleh al-Somali was responsible for the terror group’s operations outside the Afghanistan-Pakistan region, reaching into activities in Africa. The official said al-Somali was believed to have been involved in plotting attacks against the United States and Europe. He was killed by an unmanned drone missile Tuesday.

Saleh Al-Somali was part of al-Qaeda’s senior leadership circle and had connections to other Pakistan-based extremists. His role was to take guidance from senior leaders and develop plans for prospective terrorist attacks, the official said.

Too late now.

Previously, al-Somali had worked in tribal areas of Pakistan with newly arrived Westerners recruited by al-Qaeda.

Unmanned drone missile attacks have increased over the year under the Obama administration.

One down…more to go.

One More To Go...

One More To Go...
