You have to wonder how many “number threes” there are

The New York Times reports U.S. Believes It Has Killed Al Qaeda No. 3 Leader.

The number three must really be unlucky in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Update: I told you that being the al Qaeda number three was risky:

The strike that killed al Qaeda's operations chief last month deprives the group of a critical link to its affiliates as well as a crucial connection between its top leaders and foot soldiers.

But al Qaeda has become adept at filling this post, which by some counts has now had seven occupants since 2001.
