According to the LA Times, al Qaeda is reeling from Predator strikes that have been killing many of their operational leaders.  And, amazingly (once you get past the misleading headline), Bush is given most of the credit.

An intense, six-month campaign of Predator strikes in Pakistan has taken such a toll on Al Qaeda that militants have begun turning violently on one another out of confusion and distrust, U.S. intelligence and counter-terrorism officials say.

The pace of the Predator attacks has accelerated dramatically since August, when the Bush administration made a previously undisclosed decision to abandon the practice of obtaining permission from the Pakistani government before launching missiles from the unmanned aircraft.

Of course, the credit is given now that it doesn’t do him any good.  Funny the secrets the press can keep.

And yet another Bush GWoT operation that Obama has signed off on.  Change even a cynic can believe in.
