Down Number One, Here Is Number Two

President Barack Obama continues insisting that drones are doing a great job killing bad people. In particular they are “devastating” the leadership of the Pakistan Taliban leadership. Yesterday, a drone killed Wali ur-Rehman, Number Two guy in the Pakistan Taliban. I regret to inform the president of the United States of America, but there was a meeting of leaders of the Pakistan Taliban, and for some strange reason it took them ONE day to identify a new Number Two guy to a leadership position. Please inform the Drone division that it has a new Number Two guy whose name is Khan Saud.

And, Mr. President after you send a drone to kill Kahn Saud there will be another meeting and another guy will be selected to be the Number Two man of the organization. When will Barack learn that ideas fostered by George Bush and the dynamic duo of Cheney and Rumsfeld just do not work in the real world? Barack Obama still does not grasp that some  people in this world actually believe in something.
