…Where US Special Operations Forces have been operating for some time, officials have happily announced that the Al-Qaeda-linked GIA, claimed to be responsible for over 100,000 deaths, is all but extinct:

The Al-Qaida-linked faction in Algeria known as the Salafist Group for Prayer and Combat (GSPC) has appointed a new amir, or commander, in the wake of the deaths of past commanders Hassan Hattab (a.k.a. Abu Hamza) and Nabil Sahraoui (a.k.a. Abu Ibrahim Mustafa). According to a statement from the group, the new commander has been named as Abu Musab Abd al-Wadoud.
