With a hat tip to @NickConfessore, this Associated Press story could serve as the synopsis for the script to “Office Space II: Peter Gibbons Goes Rogue”:

After years of trying to discipline him, the leaders of al-Qaida’s North African branch sent one final letter to their most difficult employee. In page after scathing page, they described how he didn’t answer his phone when they called, failed to turn in his expense reports, ignored meetings and refused time and again to carry out orders.

Most of all, they claimed he had failed to carry out a single spectacular operation, despite the resources at his disposal.

The employee, international terrorist Moktar Belmoktar, responded the way talented employees with bruised egos have in corporations the world over: He quit and formed his own competing group. And within months, he carried out two lethal operations that killed 101 people in all: one of the largest hostage-takings in history at a BP-operated gas plant in Algeria in January, and simultaneous bombings at a military base and a French uranium mine in Niger just last week.

To top it off, according to an AQ business manager, Belmoktar stole printer cartridges and continued to write ransom demands on Al Qaeda letterhead even after being let go by the company.

Here’s just one example of the kind of thing Belmoktar was expected to put up with while working for his previous employer:

“I’m also gonna need you to go ahead and terrorize on Sunday, too… mm-kay? Thanks.”

    Man, who would`a thunk it; an ass to big of an ass even for AQ !?

    The first time I saw this, I heard on radio at the same time a story about muslim-slime beating their wives in appropriate manner in which the bruises would not show. That reminded me of a story I read last year about some Afghan women / wives who were kinda glad to be wives of Taliban members, because they were too tired to beat them when they come home at night……

    It's getting harder and harder to find an honest terrorist these days.

    Perhaps AQ should contact Eric Holder for a way to sue to stop AQII from impersonating AQ. I am sure they could get excellent legal advice from Holder.

    Holder`s old law firm has defended some of the terrorists, so they do have experience.

    I watched a doc on the search for al-Zarkawi the other night. A captured terrorist who we knew could help us to find him clammed up and resisted all threats and cajolling, until an interrogator promised him a much lesser sentence in trade for info to help a "new" org. that would put some of this guy`s people in control. The org. was fictional, but the guy sung like a canary !

    Al-Zarkawi was kinda like Belmoktar in that he made his own rules and was ruthless, scaring EVERY BODY !

    O/T but Drudge is having a field day with Anthony Weiner poll numbers today!!! First headline "Weiner Rising" now it's "Weiner Inching Up". Too funny.

  7. backwoodsconsr on May 29th, 2013 8:23 pm

    And if he loses, it'll be "Weiner peters out."

  8. SignPainterGuy on May 29th, 2013 8:46 pm

    Huh ? Weiner drooping in polls ? Say it ain`t so !!

  9. backwoodsconsr on May 29th, 2013 9:36 pm

    He's trying to mustard enough votes to ketchup to his opponents. He wouldn't have been in so much hot water if he hadn't tried to be such a hot dog.

  10. backwoodsconsr on May 29th, 2013 10:19 pm

    He knows he can't overcome the chili reception he's getting from the women voters by sitting on his buns.

    But they might run into court challenges do to conflict of interest.

  13. Truesoldier__ on May 30th, 2013 11:53 am

    This guy had it all wrong. He didn't need to go out and form his own organization, all he needed to do is to form a union!

  14. SignPainterGuy on May 30th, 2013 12:04 pm

    You`re kidding, right ? You know that Holder is no longer a part of that law firm, right ? Right ?
