  1. Today it was announced that the #1 candidate on my list in my article “Who Will Be the Next Bin Laden” has been named the head of Al-Qaida. Click this link to read the article: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ac/20110611/us_ac/8621601_the_immigration_debate_where_we_stand_as_a_nation

    I guess he knows he’s a target, he might as well stand up! Here’s the news story, breaking news: “Bin Laden deputy Zawahri to lead al Qaeda” http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/us_binladen_zawahri

  2. Today, it was reported that the true leader of the Al Shabaab group that operates in Somalia (and associated with Al Qaida) – Fazul Abdullah Mohammed – was shot and killed at a government checkpoint in Somalia. He elevated the 6th and last terrorist on my list in this article to a leadership position in Al Shabaab, Omar Shafik Hammami (aka Abu Mansoor Al-Amriki).

    Here is the news report on Fazul’s death: http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20110611/ts_nm/us_somalia_alqaeda

    And more indepth information on the Al Shabaab terrorist group:

    Also, here is a full article on the background of Omar Hammami from the New York Times, “The Jihadist Next Door.” http://www.nytimes.com/2010/01/31/magazine/31Jihadist-t.html?pagewanted=all.

    This is a quote from the above article about the relationship between Fazul and Omar: “Hammami came to be seen as an asset by two Qaeda-linked militants, the official said: Fazul Abdullah Mohammed and Saleh Ali Saleh Nabhan.
    Mohammed, who is also known as Haroun Fazul, is believed to be Al Qaeda’s longtime chief in East Africa. A native of the Comoros Islands off Mozambique, he is accused of organizing the 1998 bombings of American Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania that left more than 200 dead. He also is wanted for the bombing of an Israeli-owned hotel and the unsuccessful attempt to shoot down an Israeli charter jet in Mombasa, Kenya. Nabhan, a Kenyan of Yemeni descent, was also suspected in both attacks. He was killed in Somalia last September in a daylight raid by a helicopter-borne team of American Special Operations troops.”

    They’re starting to drop like flies! (If the stories are true, of course).

  3. Amazingly, it has been reported that one of the terrorists on this list, Ilyas Kashmiri, has been killed in a drone attack in Pakistan. Its too early for anyone to confirm that yet though. Stay tuned!

    Here’s a updated report from National Public Radio and the Associated Press: http://www.npr.org/2011/06/05/136973195/al-qaida-commanders-death-increasingly-certain?ft=1&f=1001
