How about No. 1 and No. 2?

The CIA has killed Al-Qaeda's #3 guy, Abu Laith al-Libi. Where? In Pakistan (imagine that).

Al-Libi was described as a senior al Qaeda leader believed to have plotted and executed attacks against U.S. and coalition forces, including a February 2007 bombing at Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan during a visit by Vice President Dick Cheney.

He was on a "most wanted" list of 12 accused terrorists which was issued in October by the Combined Joint Task Force-82 -- an anti-terror unit in Afghanistan.

Even though I believe the utter annihilation of Bin Laden (his mouthpiece wouldn't be too far behind) would be more symbolic than getting rid of a true mastermind, I hope we get him and have just enough DNA left to identify him.

After over six years mr bin liner remains at large - you would have thought that a $50 million bounty would have tempted someone to turn him in?

Poor terrorist; he probably bought it while taking a dump.

Bin is Next.

You'd think. I just want him dead. I'm a peaceful person, wouldn't hurt a fly. However, I have absolute blood lust for terrorists. I just want him dead.

Well, he was in the right spot to shiite himself.
