The headline: US Official: Al-Qaida terrorist dead
Abu Obeida al-Masri, an Egyptian al-Qaida chief responsible for attacks on U.S. forces in Afghanistan and linked to international terrorist plots, is dead, a U.S. counterterrorism official said Wednesday.
Al-Masri died of either hepatitis or a blood disease, in late 2007 in Pakistan’s lawless tribal area bordering Afghanistan, a second counterterrorism official said.
The headline and the content are not saying the same thing. Without reading the content, the headline says: “Something is being done about terrorism. The billions being spent are not vanishing into hot air. Your money is killing terror.” But the content has this to say: “Even terrorist get sick and die.”
