Mohammed Jamal Khalifa killed in Madagascar

Bill Roggio continues to do some incredible war reporting and now has some good news on the dead terrorist front.

Mohammed Jamal Khalifa, one of Osama bin Laden's brother-in-laws with deep roots in al-Qaeda as a financier and facilitator, has been reported to have been murdered in his bedroom in Madagascar. Khalifa, "who mined and traded precious stones in Madagascar," was reported to have been murdered by "a gang of 20 to 30 gunmen broke into his brother's bedroom, shot him dead 'in cold blood' and stole his belongings."


"I don't think [his death] was politically motivated," said Malek Khalifa, Mohammed Jamal's brother. But Khalifa's deep ties to al-Qaeda, coupled with his history of funding global terrorist operations, his operations in mining precious stones in Africa (a source of untraceable income), and the size of the 'gang' that murdered him, suggests otherwise. We suspect Khalifa was assassinated. "They stole everything -- his computer, all of his things," said Khalifa's brother. Task Force 145 has a mandate to hunt down senior al-Qaeda operatives world wide, and is known to have operated in Pakistan to destroy Osama bin Laden's Black Guard. Also, the U.S. recently deployed naval assets to the region, as well as Task Force 145, in the hunt for al-Qaeda and Islamic Courts leaders fleeing Somalia.

Read the rest of Bill's report at The Fourth Rail for Khalifa's extensive history with al-Qaeda and Islamic terrorism which "stretches as far back as the late 1980s, at the founding of the terrorist organization."

Fantastic news! This is the kind of news we need to get more of. And obviously for secruity and CI reasons, we don't. But when a gem like this is de-classified, it makes you thank the Lord for the work our men and women perform to serve our country.

Thanks for such a great post!

Now that's just adding insult to injury!

MyPetGoat--Your hero, OBL, hasn't been heard from in quite some time, my man. Many of us out here suspect that he has been goat food for some time. I personally think he was down there to welcome another of your favorites (Saddam). And even now, they both anxiously await a real left wing hero, Fidel. Satan is in esteemed company, indeed.

Great news.

And we did out with invading Madagascar, toppling the government and embroiling ourselves in an endless nation building quagmire. Three cheers for GW! He's learning (the hard way). Give him another two years and he might be a decent President.

I love the blog that you have. I was wondering if you would link my blog to yours and in return I would do the same for your blog. If you want to, my site name is American Legends and the URL is:

If you want to do this just go to my blog and in one of the comments just write your blog name and the URL and I will add it to my site.

Thanks,
Mark

I'd like to the sources for this assertion.

The videos of both bin Laden and Zawahiri don't indicate that they are under any sort of stress.

Hugh:

It's curious to me that this story hasn't really made much, if any, splash in the news. And before the MSM ranters get going, I don't see it anywhere on the Fox News website either. Interesting. Hopefully we'll know more by tomorrow.

One other observation for those who get their news from the comments here and on other right wing blogs, the story I read said it was a robbery. So, much more to be revealed I hope.

Any way it goes if it's true, good riddance to the guy.
