Is Abu Khabab A Shish Kabob?

Posted by Thunder Pig on July 28, 2008

A Pakistani intelligence official claimed al Qaeda weapons expert Midhat Mursi al Sayyid Umar, better known as Abu Khabab, was killed in this morning’s airstrike in South Waziristan.

“We believe he was killed in this strike,” a senior intelligence official told AFP on condition of anonymity. “It was his hide-out and information that has been shared with us says he was targeted in this strike.”

Six Pakistanis, including three foreigner terrorists, were reported killed in the airstrike, which hit either a madrassa or a home next to a mosque.

Abu Khabab and four other senior al Qaeda commanders were reported to have been killed in an airstrike in the town of Damadola in the Bajaur tribal agency in January 2006. The US military believed the safehouse in Bajaur, which was run by Taliban chieftain Faqir Mohammed, was sheltering Ayman al Zawahiri, al Qaeda’s second in command. Khabab and the other commanders were later found to be still alive.

The US Rewards for Justice Program has a $5 million bounty out for the capture of Khabab.

Khabab has a long history of working with al Qaeda’s secretive weapons of mass destruction program, which is known as al Zabadi, or ‚Äúcurdled milk.” Project al Zabadi is al weapons of mass destruction program.

The Halabja Massacre

Posted by Thunder Pig on March 16, 2008

Twenty years ago today, Saddam Hussein killed about 5,000 people (75% of them women and children) in the worst chemical attack of his career.
Thankfully, despite the opposition of many Democrats (including Ron Paul), we were able to finally remove him from power after the 2003 Invasion of Iraq. We will never find out if he were capable of topping that figure, or exporting it to a city near you.

Gateway Pundit has a good article on the attack.

From ITN shortly after the attack.

In the belief that photos and video can tell the story of such horror better than words, I have included a few videos about the massacre that occurred 20 years ago today below.

You may download and watch a flash movie here, or read more about the attack.
