Abu Ayyub al-Masri

The great thing about killing the leader of Al Qaeda in Iraq is that we (you? One?) can do it every few months. It makes a great news story: “US Military has killed the leader of Al Qaeda in Iraq, (insert name here).” The only part of the headline that needs editing is the name of the leader. It’s kind of like knocking over weebles. They wobble but they don’t fall down. If we knock over a red and white weeble a blue and white one pops up. Sure, it looks different but it serves the same purpose.
