I am the New Number Two

People like me who are fans of the 60s cult classic BBC series The Prisoner will recognize that headline. And that's what I am reminded of every single time we manage to take out the Number Two Man in Al Qaeda.

Now we've taken out another Number Two, this time in Somalia. BFD. There's always a new Number Two. Now they've taken to calling them just another "top man" in Al Qaeda -- makes it easier, I guess. Even the pathological liars in the BFEE are getting tired of it.
