UK Troops Kill al-qaeda Leader

Wait cause this one gets even better.

British forces have killed a senior al-Qaeda fugitive in a raid on a house in the southern Iraqi city of Basra, security sources say. Officials named the dead man as Omar Farouq, a top lieutenant of Osama Bin Laden in south-east Asia. Farouq was captured in Indonesia in 2002 but escaped from a US military prison in Afghanistan last year. Security sources say he was hiding in Basra and was not known to be actively operating in the area.

Apparently, in the War on Terror, you only get captured once. Second time your coming out feet first.
The thing about this is, Omar al-Farouq escaped US custody. The guy should have been hiding as far from British or American soldiers as possible. So where does he go? Iraq. Apparently al-qaeda doesn't have an IQ requirement for membership.

Nah, Omar a-Farouq was a legitimate al-qaeda leader. His name was circulating way before his initial capture, then after his capture, then even more so after his escape. His death is a victory.
