the "Seventh" Al Qaeda Number 3 Man ... killed in Iraq

Steve Benen writes in the WashingtonMonthly, here
"... This is certainly welcome news. I'm curious, though, if anyone has a list of al Qaeda #3s who've been captured or killed recently. I was keeping a list for a while, and I think al-Libi is the seventh, following Hamza Rabia, Abu Faraj al-Libbi, Saif al-Adel, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, Mohammed Sheikh Mohammed, and a senior operational leader identified in court documents as "C-2."

You'd think, after a while, al Qaeda's #4 guys would stop seeking promotions."

Between 2003 and 2005 at least nineteen "al-Zarqawi aids" were reported killed.

To help the press officers I developed a scheme for such reports.

Looks like they still use it.
