The 5,280th Key al-Qaeda Leader Killed in Iraq

The bush administration has announced the killing of the 5,280th al-Qaeda leader in Iraq, signifying that America has reached a new "milestone" in Iraq, literally.

"Ya kill 5,280 terrorists and you've broken all the old records, and, if you take all the remains left after being bombed with 1,000 lbs of high explosives, and store the remains in a one-foot tall container, America has killed one-mile worth of terrorists in Iraq," said an official that paid a hugh bribe to keep his name out of this article. And, best of all, that's somewhere around $1,000,000,000.00 a terrorist, a bargain compared to the trillion dollars and more it will cost to secure the oil fields of Iraq.

Ah, government at its best, slaughtering millions on the cheap. What a deal!

Don't it just make you proud to be an Amurikan?

it gets worse: "Abu Usama al-Tunisi was one of the most senior leaders within Al-Qaeda in Iraq," said Anderson, the chief of staff of Multi-National Corps Iraq.

The general said the September 25 strike that killed al-Tunisi was a "significant blow" to al Qaeda in Iraq, which he said has been severely disrupted by US operations and may now be reassessing its position in Iraq.


A wave of bombings and shootings swept Iraq yesterday, killing at least 50 persons and raising fears that al Qaeda has begun a promised new offensive. The U.S. military acknowledged that violence was on the upswing and blamed it on the terrorist movement.
