We’re Up To The 4’s

The #1 man in al Qaeda is bin Laden.  On that, we can all agree.

But having caught half a dozen "#2 men in al Qaeda", and a few "#3 men", the Bush Administration has pretty much exhausted credibility.

And now, we just caught the first of what I’m sure will be many #4 men.

By the way, who assigns these rankings?  I don’t even know who the #4 man is in the United States,  and we have a pretty structured system of government.  Aren’t these al Qaeda rankings pretty meaningless?
