BoomBoomBama strikes again

A U.S. drone strike in Yemen Thursday was aimed at killing Anwar al-Awlaki, the American-born radical cleric who is suspected of orchestrating terrorist attacks on the U.S, but the missile missed its target, according to Yemeni and U.S. officials.

The drone strike comes less than a week after a U.S. Navy SEALs killed Osama bin Laden at a compound in Pakistan. Had the drone strike in Yemen been successful, the U.S. would have killed two of the top three most-wanted terrorists in a single week. [bron]

De spullen die zijn gevonden in Osama Mansion lijken bruikbare informatie op te leveren. Al Qaida numero 2 komt schijnbaar ook binnen het vizier:

Digital forensic and evidence recovery specialists were part of the raid team—springing into action after the compound was secured. The team had to rapidly preserve everything, freezing everything on computers so that it didn’t get wiped out. The recovery specialists had to be particularly careful before they unplugged the computers not to trigger software programs designed to destroy hard drives or delete data that may have been installed by bin Laden’s people as protection.

The intelligence community has obtained “positive intelligence” from the materials taken from Osama bin Laden’s compound which is helping narrow down the locations of core al Qaeda leadership including the whereabouts of Ayman al Zawahiri, al Qaeda’s former No. 2 man and a candidate to succeed bin Laden.
