WASHINGTON (AP) -- The White House is confirming the death of AL-Qaida's second-in-command, calling it a "MAJOR BLOW" to the terror network!
White House spokesman Jay Carney would not confirm how Abu Yahya al-Libi was killed...BUT an American official says he was killed in a U.S. drone strike. [Obama did it again, let's re-elect him!]
Carney described al-Libi as an operational leader and a "general manager" of al-Qaida. He says al-Libi had a range of experience [whatever a general manager does] that will be hard for al-Qaida to replicate and brings the terror network closer to its ultimate demise than ever before. [Closer than ever before!!]
Al-Libi is the latest in the dozen-plus SENIOR COMMANDERS removed in the clandestine U.S. war against al-Qaida since Navy SEALs killed Osama bin Laden last year [another one of those smart invisible Obama missions because we are very sophisticated nation! Proof, we don't need no stinking proof!]
