WASHINGTON – Moroccan authorities have arrested a senior Al Qaeda recruiter known as “The Bear” who is suspected of plotting attacks against Western interests in Morocco, U.S. officials said Tuesday.
Abu Zubair al-Haili, a Saudi who weighs more than 300 pounds, is considered among the top 25 Al Qaeda lieutenant of Usama bin Laden, the officials said, speaking on the condition of anonymity.
Let’s be clear on this:
1. I am not from that part of the Arabian penninsula currently dominated by the House of Saud.
2. I weigh considerably less than 300 pounds
3. I remain at liberty.
You know, you would think I could come up with something funnier than that to say about this, but I’m just not up to humorous comparisons between myself and a murderous thug. Excuse me, alleged murderous thug. Maybe after I get my coffee.
