Ibrahim al-Asiri, the bomb maker thought to be behind Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab's (say that 3 times fast) testicle destroying attempt to blow up an airplane, met his demise at the hands of U.S. Special Forces in Yemen this weekend. Israeli National News has more here. The inimitable Jawa's take is here.
Give credit where it's due. This seems to have been a boots on the ground operation where al-Asiri and some of his buddies got some up close and personal attention from a few of the lads who specialize in sudden Jihadi/Allah introductions as opposed to a drone strike. Though from reading further it seems some Hellfires may have used in other fertilizer operations. Meh. Bullets are cheaper and if you really care you send only the very best.
"Hi, Ibrahim is it? I'm from America. My friends and countrymen wanted me to say a quick Fuck You. I sure hope you packed along some SPF 1000 cause it's about to get real hot real quick".
55 additions to the ranks of the Hellborne. A fine weekend by anyone's standards. Well done boys. Very well done indeed.
