One Order For 72 Virgins, Coming Up...

FoxNews reports the number two Al Quaeda leader in Iraq has gone on to paradise, courtesy of U.S. Special Forces. Abu Azzam, believed to have been in charge of the financing of terrorist cells in the war-torn country, is reportedly the Lieutenant of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.

Bill Rogio weighes in:

Azzam was no small player in jihad in Iraq. He was an experienced and ruthless killer, who as a native Iraqi understood the culture and context of Iraq greater than the foreign jihadis in country. His contacts are likely to be top notch. He will need to be replaced, and his replacement will have less influence and experience than his predecessor. Destroying al Qaeda in Iraq is a laborious process, but one that can be accelerated by taking out vital leaders and middle managers.
And the downsizing continues...
