Bada bing!  Paydirt!

The U.S. drones continued the hit parade today in Pakistan's northwest when hellfires rained down on a home and vehicle in North Waziristan - the attack by FOUR drones ended up killing senior al Qaeda commander, Mohammad Ahmed Almansoor, and three others.

This was a very quick identification of a senior al Qaeda casualty so this guy must have been pretty well known in the area.
