Has killing two of its leaders crippled al Qaida in Iraq?

Iraqi and U.S. forces killed two top terrorists Sunday in northern Iraq, but whether the killings would deal a fatal blow to al Qaida in Iraq remained unclear. Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al Maliki said Monday that a rocket attack killed Abu Omar al Baghdadi, the leader of the self-declared Islamic State of Iraq, and Abu Ayoub al Masri, an Egyptian thought to have ties to the international al Qaida leadership.
