For about the tenth time...I hope this is it.

Zawahiri

Jan. 13, 2006 — Today, according to Pakistani military sources, U.S. aircraft attacked a compound known to be frequented by high level al Qaeda operatives. Pakistani officials tell ABC News that al Qaeda leader Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri, Osama bin Laden's top lieutenant, may have been among them.

U.S. intelligence for the last few days indicated that Zawahiri might be in the location or about to arrive, although there is still no confirmation from U.S. officials that he was among the victims.

""..Pakistani officials tell ABC News that the bodies of the five suspected al Qaeda figures will be recovered at first light in Pakistan, but it will still take a day or two for any kind of positive identification. U.S. officials in Washington did not provide a comment."

Update

Al-Qaida's second-in-command was not at the site of a U.S. airstrike on a Pakistan village near the Afghan border that killed at least 17 people, two senior Pakistani officials said Saturday.


The officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the subject, said that Pakistan's own investigation concluded that Ayman al-Zawahri was not in the village of Damadola.


"Their information was wrong, and our investigations conclude that they acted on a false information," said a senior intelligence official who has direct knowledge of the investigations launched by Pakistan to look into the attacks.


Separately, a senior government official told AP that al-Zawahri was not present at the homes which were attacked.


"He was not there, and this is what we know after a detailed probe" into the incident, he said.


Pakistan's government was expected to formally issue its reaction on the attack later Saturday.

to be completely honest. I think Bin Laden, Al Zarwahiri and Al Zarqawi(sp?) are all dead

............That's what CNN's reporting..........

This would be a good thing. It would make me do the happy dance. I hope they bury him in the US so we can visit his grave and piss on it.

Michael Ledeen says his sources in Iran say bin Laden died there recently from kidney failure. They said he had been hiding out there for some time.

the whole bin Laden kidney issue is a mystery. Some people say he had damaged kidneys, others say he was fine.

So who knows, we may have gotten a twofer in the last month, the top two figures in al Qaeda.

Until this news, Zawahiri has definitely been alive and kicking. Correspondence and announcements about events in Iraq support that. There was a close call when we almost nabbed SOMEONE in Pakistan, but they used tunnels to escape the Paki army cordon around their farm house, but that was several years ago.

I really hope we got him. He's sort of the "Karl Rove" of al-Qaeda.
Link Posted: 1/13/2006 3:21:39 PM EDT
We will never know or be told for sure, they don't want to make these a.holes martyrs for the jihad
but we can hope it is true.
CNN would want this to be true so they can say the war is now over and we should bring our troops home.

I also find the Pakistani comments interesting. How do they know there were five and how do they know the bodies will still be there?

If this bit is true we're not talking about some Predator patrolling the skies and lucking out. This was a premeditated strike. We knew where he was or would be and decided not to take any chances. Which means we got some badassed intel.

I'm seriously going to bust out the champagne if we got this guy or Bin Laden. Zawahiri's the a-hole who planned/ordered the assassination of Sadat for making peace with Israel. He steered Bin Laden into declaring jihad against the US instead of fighting infidels in Muslim countries. He's directly responsible for many of the threats and dangers facing the US today. I can't wait till he's dead dead dead.
Link Posted: 1/13/2006 4:39:46 PM EDT
At the very least, our boys got five Al Qaeda who were apparently important enough to warrant a meeting with Zawahiri. That's not too shabby on it's own.

Who is Michael Ledeen? And I have'nt heard about the kidney failure.
Link Posted: 1/13/2006 4:55:07 PM EDT
Michael Ledeen is a Ph.D in something, political science, I think. He works for conservative think tank the American Enterprise Institute, and writes for National Review magazine. His main interest these days is Iran and seeing the end of the mullah regime there, he has a lot of contacts in the intelligence and Iranian dissident communities.

Pakistani news services are reporting the airstrike also.

Islamabad, 13 Jan. (AKI) - Unknown aircraft fired some three missiles into a village in the pro-Taliban tribal area of Bajaur on Friday, killing at least 18 people, according to residents and security officials quoted in news reports. The area borders Afghanistan's insurgent-troubled Kunar province, and several "huge" explosions rocked the village of Damadola at about 3 am local time, said a military spokesman, Major-General Shaukat Sultan.

Sultan said he did know the cause of the blasts, but said an investigation of the incident was underway. Eywitness told the Pakistan's Geo-TV that aircraft had been flying over the area for the last four days, and they heard the sound of planes' engines when Friday's blasts occurred. The house of local tribesman Gul Zaman was completely destroyed in the attacks, eyewitnesses said.

A Pakistani intelligence official quoted by Reuters said two aircraft had come in from Afghanistan and fired two or three missiles. "The casualties may be much higher. People are very angry. They are not allowing access, so exact figures of deaths and wounded people are not available," he said.

A U.S. military spokesman in Afghanistan was quoted as saying there were no reports of US forces operating in that area. There have been no previous reports of fighting in Bajaur.

The incident comes just days after Pakistan launched a vehement protest with the US-led coalition in Afghanistan. Cross-border firing in the nearby Waziristan tribal area last weekend killed eight people, including a women and wounded nine, Pakistan alleges.

Damadola village, the scene of Friday's attack, has been a stronghold of the Tehrik-e-Nifaz-e-Shariat-e-Mohammadi (Movement for the Implementation of Mohammad's Sharia Law), a pro-Taliban group banned by Pakistan in January, 2002.

Pakistani intelligence officials suspect Tehrik-e-Nifaz-e-Shariat-e-Mohammadi may be involved in attacks on Coalition forces in Afghanistan, and the missile strikes may have been launched in retaliation.

US forces have been in Afghanistan since 2001, pursuing the Taliban and their al-Qaeda allies. US officials have long said they believed Osama bin Laden has been hiding out on the remote Afghan-Pakistan border

I think you are absolutely right..seems as though there have been many more communications to worldwide AlQueada through Zawahiri. I just hope he is dead. They have been offering a 25 million $$$ reward for info on him, in Pakistan. maybe someone squeeled.

Id rather they be captured alive and then tortured in a friendly manner.

Keep them awake for three weeks and then make them eat pork every day. Bacon... Yumm. Televise the slaughter of a pig, chopping out a chop & frying it and serving it with them relishing every morsel. Al Jezebel News should pick it up and spread the word about them eating the forbidden fruit.

When the die of whatever, take them to Paradise where 72 virgins await them. Paradise Pig farm that is where 72 female virgin pigs, starved, anxiously await their next meal.

If any of them ARE dead (which I sincerely hope), I pray the US would never admit it. If we did, they would instantly become what they have been trying to be this whole time; martyrs.

If they are dead, roll them into a shallow hole and leave them to rot where they fell and move on, but shut up about it. I would rather deal with libtards asking "where's Osama?" than making them into an instant Islamic hero.
