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?
