Security forces killed the Al Qaeda terrorist group's leader in Saudi Arabia during a fierce gun battle Sunday in the capital, Riyadh, an Interior Ministry official told this country's official news agency.Younis Mohammed Ibrahim al-Hayari was from Morocco, and was reported to have entered the country for the Hajj five years ago.
Interesting that the Saudi branch of al Qaeda had a foreign leader, but according to authorities he had been "nominated by his peers, following the death of those preceding him, to be the head of sedition and corruption in the land." As a result,
Al-Hayari topped a list issued Tuesday of 36 most-wanted militants sought for participation in previous terror attacks in the kingdom dating back to 2003.Guess it's time for new elections.
Hot damn, score one for our side! Great articles. I don't know how you do it. I can barely find time to put anything on my own blog by the time I read all the milblogs and make comments. But I think it's more important to respond to the troops and give support.Posted by devildog6771 at July 3, 2005 07:11 PM
So, al Qaeda "nominates" its leaders, but doesn't want Iraq and Afghanistan to have a voice in who THEIR leaders are... Wow. Sure sounds like al Qaeda's opposition to the representative governments in Afghanistan and Iraq is driven more by ideology/philosophy than a desire for power and control...
