Leader of Al Qaeda group in Iraq is reported killed

Again? This guy dies more often than Kenny on South Park.

The Iraqi government said Tuesday that it was investigating reports from "reliable sources" that Abu Ayyub al-Masri, leader of the radical Islamist insurgent group Al Qaeda in Mesopotamia, had been killed in an ambush by a rival insurgent faction.

Oh, trouble in paradise there insurgents? While it's not definite that al-Masri has bought the dry, arid unfertile sand the fact remains that terrorist groups are killing each other in Iraq. And that could mean only one thing. That's right. Survivor:Iraq has begun.

Iraqi officials, desperate to show gains against a relentless insurgency, have in the past trumpeted the killing or capture of major insurgent leaders, only to retract the claims later when the suspects turned out to have been wrongly identified.

Almost sounds like this report is hoping al-Masri is okay.

American military commanders said they could not confirm the reports.

Oh well, probably isn't true. It's fun to hope though.
