From the Daily Kos

Every few weeks, the Bush administration trumpets the killing or capturing of another #2 person in the Al Qaida operation. Bush did it again Wednesday morning.

Except that they can't all be the #2 person, and media people are finally starting to realize that such claims are simply lies. Better late than never.

    flimsy sanity, ah! I'm relieved...I had begun to think I had had a succession of "senior moments"!

    We're really entering "the boy who cried 'wolf'" territory on this point, aren't we?

    There's a great cartoon in today's NY Times showing a vast number of #2s in the Al Qaeda org chart
