Source: Ayman al-Zawahri dead after US strike

If you remember who he is, he was Bin Laden’s #2 and a physician from Egypt

The United States killed Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahri in a drone strike over the weekend, two people briefed on the operation told POLITICO.

In a statement to reporters, a senior administration official said “over the weekend, the United States conducted a counterterrorism operation against a significant Al Qaeda target in Afghanistan. The operation was successful and there were no civilian casualties.”

This has Raisen Cain written all over it.

Good.

kill all terrorist.

good job, Joe.

Sort of poetic that this happens under Biden since he was Obama’s VP and Bin Laden bit it under Obama.

Congratulations to the drone operators, planning officers, and the political executive. One more terrorist piece of garbage is dead.

Doesn’t detract from Joe’s overwhelming failures, but it is a good thing and all Americans should be proud.

From what I am reading the Haqqani Network might have established ties with al-Zawahri which would mean that the Taliban and therefore Afghanistan has crawled into bed with al-Qaeda?

Yeah like 30+ years ago, no ?

Why did we spend 20 years and $2.3 trillion in Afghanistan if we can just get them from the other side of the world?

According to an NBC story based on anonymous people familiar with the situation. Heard that one many times.
And what happened when he approved the killing of the chief Iranian terrorist mastermind? The same media was all upset that it made Iran mad.

MUST … DEFEND … TRUMP …

As compared to uncritically accepting any unsupported hate Trump story.

It’s a story that presents facts. Facts don’t have emotions such as hate.

Because it’s too much to believe that the most sophisticated intelligence network in the entire world was able to track him down?

The only fact that story presents is that NBC alleged that anonymous people said that Trump selected several terrorists to hunt down and it did not include this person on the list. According to NBC anonymous people said Trump also mentioned that he had not heard of this persons name. NBC then concluded he was not selected because Trump had not heard this persons name. Did they ask Trump for verification? No mention of that. You are using the term “fact” very loosely.
