#1 Yup, now our attention turns to Dr. al-Zawahiri.

That should be about the end of it. We have killed all the "#3" leaders several times over.

#2 Compound (NOTE: not the one that has been floating around purported to be the compound):

#4 Keep the eyes and ears open. Chances are the rats are moving to another hole. Maybe you can catch them on the run.

#8 Penguin and tu3031 -- my wife and I were cracking similar jokes last night. First references I've seen so far on line. Y'all are good (as much as us, of course ;) ).

#10 "... Costellobad" > Actually, as per "Abbottobad" it may be more truth than fiction, as I remember reading News from the late 1960's-early 1970's that Pakistan did seemingly name a place there in honor of the famous comedy team.

OTOH it was a long time ago, + it is possible that the Artic per se describing the above was just a Sensationalist/Tabloid fake meant for Adult fun, not impressing kids like myself.

#11 As for AYMAN, given his age + background I'm more inclined to think He as a successor to Osama will share leadership of AL QAEDA wid one of the younger set.

Also, OSAMA per se had TWENTY = 20 SONS.

* ION FREEREPUBLIC > US EXPECTS RAPID Al-QAEDA RETALIATION [for OBL's death = "martyrdom"], US RECALLS MARINE NUCLEAR-BIOLOGICAL-CHEMICAL UNIT, from 03/11 Earthquake-Tsunami damaged Japan.

#12 ABC NEWS > [Omar Bin Laden] BIN LADEN'S SON: WORSE IS YET TO COME.

OMAR says now-dead Big Daddy-o OSAMA was actually the MOST BENEVOLENT = REASONABLE OF HIS CIRCLE.

IOW, IUUC OSAMA = UNCLE MUAMMAR IN LIBYUH = AMER'S BEST "FRENEMY" IN PAKISTAN = AFPAK???
