Al-Qaida Leader in Iraq Killed in Airstrike

Abu Usama al-Tunisi killed by US led forces. He is believed to be responsible for the kidnapping and killing of US soldiers last summer, according to Brig. Gen. Joseph Anderson.

He did not name the soldiers and Pentagon officials said they did not immediately know whom he was referring to. But three U.S. soldiers were killed that month in an ambush-kidnapping that happened while they were guarding a bridge.
Spc. David J. Babineau was killed at a river checkpoint south of Baghdad on June 16, 2006, and Pfc. Kristian Menchaca and Pfc. Thomas Tucker were abducted. The mutilated bodies of the kidnapped soldiers were found three days later, tied together and booby-trapped with bombs.

A Tunisian national, he was also responsible for recruiting foreign terrorists and bringing them to Iraq.

To quote Officer Malone from The Untouchables, "He's as dead as Julius Caesar".


Good.
