I Love A Happy Ending

Muhsin Musa Matwali Atwah (say that fives times quickly) was a terrorist on the FBI’s Most Wanted list. I say was because he is no more. The Pakistani government cancelled his ticket. Or rather, I should say they punched his ticket for a one-way trip to Allah and the vaunted 72 virgins.

The FBI removed an al-Qaida explosives expert linked to the 1998 U.S. Embassy bombings in Africa from the most wanted terrorists list Friday after learning he was killed six months ago.
