None of those killed on Tuesday were among the 25 names on the country's most-wanted list, security officials said.So, we're not even on the Top 25 list. We are tough on the underlings, though. Or, any random Yemeni who might be wandering by.
On Monday, White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters that U.S. anti-terrorism efforts had decimated al Qaeda's global leadership and greatly diminished its core in Afghanistan and Pakistan, saying the threat had "shifted to some of these affiliates, in particular AQAP."Yeah, Carney, I can see that they've been decimated. Of course, Carney probably doesn't know the meaning of the word, or it's derivation. And, in a decimation, the leadership was always killed. So, if you don't kill the leadership, then you don't have a decimation. Carney is using the word poorly, but he probably doesn't know the real meaning. It sounds good, so he says it. Helluva a job, there, Carney.
