Khalid al-Husaynan, Al-Qa'ida Central's "missionary preacher" and da'wa outreach official, has been confirmed killed in photographs released on global jihadi web sites. Reports of his killing emerged in early December 2012. A former employee of the state of Kuwait, al-Husaynan was a personable speaker with bona fide credentials as a religious scholar. I detailed his background in an article for Foreign Policy magazine's AFPAK Channel HERE.
He was one of the few AQC officials with a prominent public persona.
