Al Qaeda’s number three leader, an Egyptian named Abu Hamza Rabia, was killed in an apparent rocket strike in Pakistan on Wednesday.

Rabia reportedly succeeded Abu Faraj al-Libbi, who was captured earlier this year, as al Qaeda’s chief planner of terrorist attacks. His death is certainly good news.
