You remember Moktar Belmoktar? (Spelled Mokhtar Belmokhar in some circles.) He’s been called Mr. Marlboro by some folks. Or the Prince, or even Laaouar, the One-Eyed. Intel professionals called him Uncatchable. I call him dead.
Ol’ Mokhtar Belmokhar is a one-eyed jihadi. And he broke away from al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) to build a new organization, al-Mulathamin.
He’s also called Khaled Abu al-Abbas. But folks have taken to calling him Mr. Marlboro.
