WE MISS YOU, JOSH! Since Josh is in New Haven, I thought I'd post some of his favorite type of news: American success in the war on terror. While the US government announced a while ago that it had captured a senior Al Qaeda figure, that figure has now been identified as Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri
, an operative who played a critical role in both the African embassy and Cole bombings. As the WashPost
observed, "Al-Nashiri's apprehension and [Predator victim] Harithi's death mark important successes in the U.S. war on al Qaeda's leadership, terror experts said, at a time when Democrats and others have questioned the effectiveness of the administration's war on terror."
UPDATE: If you read the NYT piece on al-Nashiri, make sure to read TNR's response
to it as well.
