An airstrike Sunday killed a top al-Qaida leader on the FBI's most wanted list for his role in the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole warship, Yemeni officials said. The airstrike resembled earlier U.S. drone attacks, but the U.S. did not immediately confirm it.

Fahd al-Quso was hit by a missile as he stepped out of his vehicle, along with another al-Qaida operative in the southern Shabwa province, Yemeni military officials said. They were speaking on condition of anonymity in accordance with military regulations.

Al-Quso, 37, was on the FBI's most wanted list, with a $5 million reward for information leading to his capture. He was indicted in the U.S. for his role in the 2000 bombing in the USS Cole in Aden, Yemen, in which 17 American sailors were killed and 39 injured.

He served more than five years in a Yemeni prison for his role in the attack and was released in 2007.

see how no one cares about articles like this on the boards when it doesn't mention the bible, god or homosexuality. If they can't get into an argument over the topic than they don't post :fighting0049:

I think that when they post articles like this one, it does not make sense to argue. I think that this person deserved geting killed for the way he killed innocent people. There is no controversy on this report and this is why people don;t care about it.

Anybody else besides me find it ironic that this guy was killed by an airstrike just days after the attack in Pakistan?

It is almost like our government knows where these guys are and only takes them out if they do something to warrant it.

it's pretty understandable considering this type of news post isn't very polarizing.
