Yemen Hell Fire strike a twofer for US

NY Times:

Yemen’s official news agency reported that the young Web-savvy American thought to be behind Inspire, a magazine for Al Qaeda, was killed in the same Friday strike that killed the radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki.
The report, citing an unnamed defense official, said the man, Samir Khan, was killed in the strike, along with two other people, and identified him as an American citizen and a computer specialist....
... 
This should be a real blow to al Qaeda's most effective  propaganda arm.  If there is a next edition of their Inspire Magazine it will probably have a black border.

The Telegraph reports that Al Qaeda top bomb maker in Yemen was also among the casualties.
...
 Reports last night said the bomb maker Ibrahim Hassan al-Asiri was also killed in the vehicle. If confirmed, it would mean the foreign operations of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) had been wiped out.
... 
It appears to be a real decapitation strike against AQAP.
