Butler, this Slate article also notes that the Al-Qaida “number 3″ has been killed at least 4 times. And the war effort has immediately improved, each time, I’m sure. (Thanks to DR)

And this MSNBC article notes (thanks to JB):

Al-Yazid, who is also known as Sheik Saeed al-Masri, is the seventh person considered by U.S. intelligence to be the No. 3 leader who has been killed or captured since 2001, Riedel said.

Even if they killed Numero Uno, assuming he is even alive, the act would only inspire more people to join the terrorists.
