CIA UAV kills Al-QUAEDA operative

(CBS) Opening up a new front in the war on terror, U.S. forces launched a pinpoint missile strike in Yemen, killing a top al Qaeda operative in his car in the first such overt attack outside of Afghanistan, a U.S. official said.

The strike, conducted by a CIA drone aircraft, killed Qaed Salim Sinan al-Harethi, the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity. U.S. counterterrorism officials say al-Harethi was al Qaeda's chief operative in Yemen and a suspect in the October 2000 bombing of the destroyer USS Cole.

Apparently the shot was made by a remote-controlled drone using a hellfire missile, under the guidance of a computer expert Pilot

Unfortunately, the Ace Pilot who made the kill was unavailable for comment today, as his mother says "He's got school tomorrow"  ;D
