It is often said that money is the lifeblood of Jihad and evidently Al Qaeda is watching its money closely, because they basically fired one of their key North African leaders over housekeeping paperwork…That particularly Jihadi was also disenchanted with hostage-taking-for-ransom operations as well…

In one 10-page letter, al-Qaida leadership scolded an ambitious terrorist, the one-eyed Algerian bandit known as Moktar Belmoktar, for failing to attend meetings, for ignoring orders, for missing their phone calls, and for failing to turn in required monthly expense reports…

Among al-Qaida’s complaints with Belmoktar: he didn’t charge enough ransom for one hostage, he failed to carry out any “spectacular operations,” and he posted messages on Internet forums badmouthing the terrorist organization.

But Belmoktar had his complaints too – he said that he was tired of carrying out endless kidnappings-for-ransom, “which the mujahedeen got bored with.”
