One of the world's most wanted Terrorists, Imad Mughniyeh, was killed in a car bombing in Syria. He is know for the attacks that killed hundreds of Americans in Lebanon, and brutal kidnappings of Westerners. The Lebanese Shiite militant group Hezbollah, and their top ally, Iran, blamed Israel on Wednesday for the assassination. Israel denied involvement, but officials made no effort to conceal their approval of his death.
What a blessing to the good people Israel this must have been. As they constantly have to worry about their begrudging neighbor, Palestine.
Mughniyeh was on the FBI's list of most wanted terrorists. The U.S. had previously offered a $5 million reward for information leading to his arrest or conviction. He was also indicted in America for his role in planning the 1985 hijacking of a TWA airliner when a U.S. Navy driver was killed.
While Mughniyeh's death comes as a relief, his brutal past as a terrorist also comes as a grievous reminder of what we face in the overall future War on Terrorism. And is all the more reason we need a President who will see to it that the job of Security that America needs so desperately, is kept intact. It's not Obama, friends, don't fool yourself, because he's not willing to confront these issues that are most important to keep America safe.
Think about this over the next few months leading up to November.
