    USS Cole Bombing Suspect Killed in Yemen

    Yemeni Al-Qaeda leader Fahd al-Quso, who was wanted in connection with the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole, was killed in an air raid in eastern Yemen on Sunday, according to a report by AFP.

    Al-Qaeda, which has strongholds in southern and eastern Yemen, confirmed Quso's death in an SMS text message sent to reporters that could not be immediately verified.

    “Fahd al-Quso, who was wanted by the United States for the attack against the USS Cole, was killed tonight (Sunday) in an American raid on the Rafadh region” in the Shabwa province, tribal chief Abdel Magid bin Farid al-Awlaki told AFP.

    Quso was killed when two missiles slammed near his home in Rafadh, east of Ataq, the provincial capital of Shabwa province, the tribal chief said. He added that two of the suspect's body guards were also killed in the raid...

    Not much puts a smile on my weary face these day but news like this does erase my somewhat wary frown, even if it is only momentarily.
