Ibrahim al-Asiri, AQAP's Bomb Maker Gets Bombed

Live by the bomb die by the bomb I always say.

brahim al-Asiri, a master bomb-maker for al-Qaeda believed to have masterminded a plot to down a commercial airliner over Detroit on Christmas Day 2009, was killed in a US drone strike in Yemen last year, US officials confirmed to Fox News and CBS News Monday.

Al-Asiri is said to have made the underwear bomb that a Nigerian man named Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab attempted to detonate on a Northwest Airlines flight to Detroit in December 2009. He was also involved in a plot to hide explosives in printer cartridges being shipped to the US.

You all know what this means, don't you?

Yup.
