Pre-Exit Victories for GWB & The Company

GWB unleashed the hounds of Hell about a year ago.

They've done well; here's a list of those now at room temperature:

Khalid Habib, a veteran combat leader and operations chief involved with plots to attack the West, who served as deputy to Al Qaeda No. 3 Shaikh Sa’id al-Masri

Rashid Rauf, the mastermind of the 2006 British airliner plot

Abu Khabab al-Masri, Al Qaeda’s most seasoned explosives expert and trainer, and the man responsible for its chemical and biological weapons efforts

Abdallah Azzam, also a top aide to Sheikh Sa’id al-Masri

Abu al-Hassan al-Rimi, a leader who led cross-border operations against coalition forces in Afghanistan

Abu Sulaiman al-Jaziri, a senior external operations planner and facilitator

Abu Jihad al-Masri, a senior operational planner and propagandist

Usama al-Kini, an East African who was chief of Pakistan operations and the planner of last year’s Marriott attack in Pakistan and the bombing of Benazir Bhutto’s motorcade upon her return from exile.

There's little reason for Obama to change direction, either.
