Hellfire Kills bin Laden’s Buddy

The CIA liquidated an al-Qaeda leader. It’s strange, but the CIA learned about it from the newspapers
Six alleged members of Osama bin Laden’s al-Qaeda terrorist organization, including a terrorist leader, were killed by a missile fired by an unmanned US aircraft in Yemen on Monday. American television companies report that that it was the work of the CIA. The six terrorists were killed while in a car. The key dead terrorist, Qaed Senyan al-Harthi, also known as Abu Ali, was close to Osama bin Laden. The USA believes that this terrorist was an organizer of the attack on the USS Cole in the port of Aden in October 2000. Seventeen American sailors were killed in the terrorist attack. According to CNN, the key suspect was identified by a mark on his leg. The TV company also informs that it was a Hellfire missile that was fired at the terrorists’ car. NBC reports that there were two missiles launched.

According to the Associated Press, it was an explosive that detonated in the car, and the CIA invented the missile story later. The CIA itself has published no official information on the subject yet. US Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld was the first to comment on the information. He said that if Abu Ali’s death is confirmed, this could be called good news. Donald Rumsfeld didn’t mention any involvement of the USA in the attack.
