The Famous Ones are All Dead

Breaking news, under the headline “Previously unknown militant to replace slain al-Qaida in Iraq leader al-Zarqawi”:

Al-Qaida in Iraq announced in a web statement posted Monday that a previously unknown militant named Abu Hamza al-Muhajer will succeed its slain leader, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.

The name al-Muhajer, Arabic for “immigrant,” suggested he was not Iraqi.

OK, that was an exaggeration. They’re not all dead. Quite a few have been captured.
