I thought we didn’t have any allies in the War on Terror. Then what’s Pakistan doing killing off one of al Qaeda’s heavies?
April 13, 2006 — A senior Egyptian al Qaeda member was killed along with other militants during a Pakistani military raid of a hideout in the northern part of Pakistan, sources have told ABC News.
Multiple intelligence sources in Pakistan confirmed to ABC News that they believed Abu Mohsin Musa, also known as Abdul Rahman, had died in the overnight raid.
Rahman was one of the FBI’s most wanted men with a $5 million bounty on his head. He was indicted in absentia in a New York court for his alleged involvement in the bombings of the United States embassies in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania; and Nairobi, Kenya, on Aug. 7, 1998.
White House Press Secretary Tony Snow should point out this victory in the war, and should pick up where bloggers are leaving off and promote what’s been found so far in the vast Iraqi documents archive.
