OBL’s brother in law Jamal Khalifa was killed in his home by unknown assailants in Madagascar.  He was a precious stones dealer, reputed to be a financier of the Philippine Al Qaeda franchise Abu Sayyaf group. He was also indicted for participation in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, and was briefly detained in Saudi Arabia following 9/11. Khalifa’s attackers took not only his diamonds but his computer and papers, which one hopes will make their way to the nearest CIA station.
