Embassy bombing Terrorist Dead

Good news, another day another dead terrorist. Pakistan gets five million for a job well done.

CNN: An al Qaeda operative wanted in connection with the 1998 U.S. Embassy bombings was killed in April in Pakistan, American officials have confirmed.
Pakistani officials had said that Muhsin Musa Matwalli Atwah was killed in North Waziristan during an airstrike by Pakistani forces near the border with Afghanistan.
More here from his Wikipedia page.
Mushin Musa Matwalli Atwah (June 19, 1964 April 12, 2006) was an Egyptian national wanted by the United States government.

Also known as Abdul Rahman, Abdul Rahman Al-Muhajir, Abdel Rahman, and Mohammed K.A., he was wanted by the United States government in connection to the August 7, 1998 American embassy bombings in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania and Nairobi, Kenya. For his role in that attack, he was indicted in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York.
Consequently on October 10, 2001, Atwah was placed on the initial list of the FBI's top 22 Most Wanted Terrorists, which was released to the public by President Bush.

Atwah has been suspected of being in Afghanistan as of October 2001.
By early 2006, he was suspected as a key supplier of arms to terrorists battling Pakistani forces in North and South Waziristan.

On April 12, 2006, Atwah was reported by an anonymous Pakistani Cabinet minister to have been killed along with 6 other militants, by Pakistani forces in a helicopter gunship raid on the village of Naghar Kalai near the Afghan border. Villagers reported that armed men removed the bodies.[1] Atwah's death was confirmed by US officials on October 24, 2006, following DNA testing [2]. His profile had been removed from the FBI's most wanted terrorists website by October 20, 2006. [3]

Goodbye Mushin Musa Matwalli Atwah and may the devil do meatballs from your body.

1 Excellent news
Serves the bastards right!

Incidentally, regarding solidersangel, they're extending the scope of their work to cover all coalition forces of all nationalities; yes they DO indeed do good work :-)

2 I am sure they took that into account. It took them almost six months to confirm it, so I am sure it is legit.

3 Before celebrating, I'd first like to know who supplied the DNA sample.
Sure, it must have come from Atwah's body--but was that body alive or dead at the time? If we're going to take a sample supplied by Pakistan as definitive proof of his death, then what better way for a terrorist--with the collusion of the Pakistan intelligence forces--to disappear?

4 Ok! Alright! The Pakistanis killed a terrorist to make an example and keep us off their case (for now)so that they can go right back to harboring and funding terrorist activities without fear of repercussion. How encouraging! Go allies!

5 Good point, Keith. Unless that DNA sample was his head, I'd be suspicious.

7 lol, good call...that does look like Freddie.

"...and we'll keep on fighting, 'till the end...which is now."

8 You guys probably won't be able to tell it; but this guys' racial features are VERY Arabic. So, to me he doesn't look like Freddie Mercury at all.

Same thing with that Pakistani would-be dirty bomb guy. I can see you guys may not be able to tell him apart from Mexican folks; I would definitely be able to.

9 The end is now? Shit. We haven't even got mad yet. All we are doing is acting like cops in a foreign land. See what happens when the majority realizes it's time to get down. Does anyone out there actually believe we will let these islamic creeps win? They are fixing to destroy themselves. With our help.

10 Uh, Freddie Mercury was actually of Persian descent I believe. A halfbreed mix of Afghanistan or some bullshit. Probably explains why he was gay.
