al qaeda confirmed overnight that an american attack in yemen killed a terror group's second highest ranking figure. nasir organized several attacks on the west including the massacre at "charlie hebdo" magazine in paris. >> the cia say a drone fired the shot. clarissa ward good morning. >> reporter: good morning. in that announcement al qaeda's affiliate here al qaeda in the arabian peninsula said that wuhayshi had been killed alongside two other al qaeda fighters and the group announced it has already picked a successor to replace him. al whimreamy. his death is a major setback for al qaeda here and led operations in yemen since 2002. he was what happens most famously responsible for sending two underwear bombers to blow up
7:05 am
airliners over american soil, though both of those attacks failed. really up until now al qaeda is thriving here because of the vacuum of months of civil war. the group controls more territory here than ever before including a city of more than 200,000 and they have more fighters and more cash than ever before, in part, because when they moved into that city they took control of its central bank. al qaeda finished its statement with a warning for america saying, that it was still alive and here to stay and that it would continue to make americans' lives miserable. charlie? >> thanks clarissa. mike morrell is in washington. he is a former cia deputy director. mike, good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> how significant is this? >> charlie, i think this is the most significant u.s. counterterrorism success since the killing of osama bin laden. this guy wuhayshi ran al qaeda
7:06 am
in the arabian peninsula the last 15 years and the most dangerous al qaeda group and biggest threat to the homeland and he was also the number two in the entire global al qaeda organization. so this is a very very significant success. >> we have seen a number of successes recently. does this suggest that we have sources inside these terrorist organizations? >> so charlie one of the things that is interesting to me here is we were concerned when united states was forced to leave yemen, that we were going to be blind. but this tells me that we have found a way to continue to collect intelligence there and that is a very good thing. >> mike they have already announced a replacement. can you tell us about him and won't he pick up where they left off? >> good question gayle. this guy, rhami a long time al qaeda in the arabian peninsula operative was in jail with wuhayshi from 2003 to 2006.
7:07 am
he has been the group's military commander. i think a setback in two ways, gayle. one is that wuhayshi was running the organization for 13 years and disruptive to replace him. all of these leaders have to worry about their own security and that is a very good thing in terms of not allowing them to focus on plotting. >> there is also the question of the bomb maker al sari who may be in yemen. how important of a target is he? >> i think he is the most important target. because he is the guy responsible for producing these very sophisticated explosive devices. the one one the underwear bomber used and the one in the printer cartridge and in that nonmetallic suicide vest. he is very significant. very significant. probably the most significant after wuhayshi. >> mike morrell, thank you for joining us from washington this
