EXCLUSIVE: Pakistani Military Sources Say Zawahiri May Be Dead
ABC News ^ | January 13, 2006 | Brian Ross

Posted on 01/13/2006 3:38:41 PM PST by John W

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.

He's a victim now? Nice of ABC to imply the THUG/Criminal who did the deed.

This would be HUGE.

The only thing better would be getting Bin Laden or Zarqawi.

"..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."

I hope he is dead, but we all have had our chains yanked before.

Let me get this straight, in a murder you have victims and in a war you have casualties. ABC news says he was a victim.

So I guess we now know who they were after when the aircraft hit earlier. Praying that they got this evil SOB, and his butt buddy Osama was standing right next to him.

Not being talked about much, is that we appear to have bombed a site within Pakistan, which contained people who were al-Queda, and the Paks admit they knew the alQ were there

But since our chains have been yanked so many times before, I'll wait until I hear official word, then I'll celebrate.

It's all good, man. Intel had Zawahiri in or about to arrive in that area. There are now five high-level AQ operatives assessed to be dead. Sure, I'd prefer he's among them, but even if not this was a major success in the war on terror. God bless all our troops, but especially the ones involved with this precision strike!

Villagers described seeing an unmanned plane circling the area for the last few days and then bombs falling in the early morning darkness.

Not very discrete.

Pakistani officials tell ABC News that the bodies of the five suspected al Qaeda figures will be recovered at first light in Pakistan...

Why wait? They'll be carried away by then.

OBL was killed a dozen times and is still breathing. Zawahiri's been killed a couple times before. Thanks, but I'll wait for the DNA testing.

He is the evil force behind this evil group. His death is more important than Bin Laden's in reality though not in symbolism.
