Al Qaeda's #2 guy

2012-09-06 23:40:16.765475+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

Covered here because a hiking topic one morning, ages ago, was what the org chart in Al Qaeda must look like: All these number three guys who are vying to not be promoted to number two.

RT Nate Silver @fivethirtyeight:

Under Obama's watch, we killed Al Qaeda's No. 2 17 times.

To be fair, It think an equivalent number of Al Qaeda #2 guys were killed under G.W. Bush's watch too.

Every time we killed the #2 terrorist the #3 guy got promoted. Eventually the guy who parked the camels ended up in the office.
