Another al-Qaeda #3 Bites the Dust

The WaPo is reporting that yet another AQ #3 leader has gone down.

A U.S. official [in Pakistan] said there is "strong reason" to believe that Mustafa Abu al-Yazid, known as Sheik Saeed al-Masri, was killed, apparently by a CIA drone strike in Pakistan's tribal belt within the past two weeks.

Since they appear to have an inexhaustible supply of Number 3 men, this won't be the end of al-Qaeda, and maybe not even the beginning of the end. But at least our Predator drones are keeping AQ on the run.
