A New Target For The SEALSPosted: 18 May 2011
I recently wrote a post on the possible new leaders of A-Qaeda and now there is an interim leader…
Al-Qaeda has yet to name a successor to Osama bin Laden, but CNN reports that a “caretaker” leader is in place. He is identified as Saif al-Adel, an Egyptian who has been in the group’s upper echelon for years. Even al-Qaeda has to worry about politics, apparently: Adel may simply be the equivalent of a test balloon to see how the group’s rank-and-file reacts to the idea of someone from Egypt—as opposed to the Arabian Peninsula—taking charge. If it goes well, it could pave the way for bin Laden deputy Ayman al-Zawahri, also an Egyptian, to take permanent control.
Now we have a new target……let the SEALs know they are needed yet again…..it may be a mote point….why? Most of the AQ members do NOT want an Egyptian leader….so the SEALs may not be needed….the faction of the AQ may do the work for them….
