Al Qaeda Chief Explosives Expert Dead in ‘Unprecedented’ US Op.

Reports indicate that a massive US military operation in Yemen on Saturday and Sunday killed well over 55 Al Qaeda terrorists. Among the dead reportedly is Ibrahim al-Asiri, the chief bomb maker of the terrorist organization.

A 4x4 truck which the 32-year-old al-Asiri was thought to be in was ambushed by US special forces over the weekend, according to the Daily Mail.

The US special forces, who were dropped in by helicopter, reportedly took position by the road and waited for the truck to arrive before showering it with a hail of bullets. While the occupants managed to fire back, all were killed in the barrage.

Trained dogs were used by soldiers to identify those in the truck, and troops later confirmed that one was a “high value militant.” If the rumors of al-Asiri’s death are true, he would be the most senior Al Qaeda terrorist killed since Osama Bin Laden in May 2011.

Al-Asiri is considered an explosives expert, and was the mastermind behind the failed 2009 “underwear bombing” attempt on a plane from Amsterdam to Detroit. An upgraded underwear bomb, also thought to be Al-Asiri’s work, was foiled by the CIA in 2012.

An Al Qaeda mastermind whose plots included a notorious aircraft underpants bomb is believed to have been killed by special forces in Yemen.

Ibrahim al-Asiri, who was also suspected of concealing explosives in ink cartridges found on planes at East Midlands Airport, is said to have died in a shootout.

Officials in Yemen said they were ‘confident’ the terror chief, who specialised in building devices for mid-air attacks, was one of the victims of the ambush.

Efforts were yesterday being made to identify the body but, if confirmed, the strike will be the most high-profile against Al Qaeda leaders since Osama bin Laden and hate cleric Anwar al-Awlaki were killed in 2011.
...
A Yemeni government official said: ‘The body of a high-value Al Qaeda target is being tested to confirm its identity.’

The shooting, on Sunday night, was part of a three-day operation against AQAP.

At least 65 militants were killed in the offensive involving CIA-controlled drone strikes, bombing raids by Yemeni jets and missions by US and Yemeni special forces.

The raids followed the release of a video showing al-Wuhayshi urging a large group of extremists at an open-air meeting to ‘eliminate’ America.

The ambush took place on a road in the lawless southern Shabwa province, east of the capital Sanaa. Al-Asiri is Al Qaeda’s most notorious bombmaker and is the prime suspect in several airliner plots.



Is it a total victory? Hella no. But it’s a big set back for them. And a nice training exercise for those troops: I’ve read in other places that these were US supported troops, not necessarily US forces; that implies that they were nearly-local boys trained up to do the job. Like Saudis, or Yemenis, or Iraqi troops. And that would make this a better win than if it was just Uncle doing the cleaning out of the sandbox.

But ... whatever. Nearly 5 dozen brain baked loonies taken down. That’s 3888 raisins in the afterlife, at 72 each. Not a bad haul for a holiday weekend.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
