As we blogged here, it appears that the US missile strike in Pakistan took out Midhat Mursi al-Sayid Umar, better known as Abu Khabab al-Masri. For a better understanding of who this terrorist was (prior to his untimely meeting with a missile fired from an unmanned Predator drone), read Al Qaeda’s Mad Scientist by Dan Darling at the Weekly Standard. Here’s an excerpt but read the whole article:

According to computer files recovered by the Wall Street Journal in the wake of the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan, as of May 1999 the al Qaeda leadership, spearheaded by the group’s second-in-command Ayman al-Zawahiri, had decided to establish an unconventional weapons program codenamed al Zabadi (“curdled milk”). The unit was to be headed by Khabab.
