Jihadi Photographs Confirm the "Martyrdom" of Khalid al-Husaynan, Al-Qa'ida Central's Missionary Preacher

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.
