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.
