Don’t mess with “Mad Dog” Mattis. That’s what terrorists around the world are realizing after another successful operation in the Middle East took out a senior Al Qaeda operative.
The Washington Free Beacon reported that Abu Khattab al Awlaqi and two of his associates have been killed in airstrikes conducted by U.S. Central Command, the military section responsible for the Middle East.
That figure was near the top of the organizational hierarchy in the radical group known as Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. “Al Awlaqi was a senior leader responsible for planning and conducting terrorist attacks against civilians,” stated a CENTCOM news release.
