Did they get him?

Early reports are coming out about a new rocket strike in Pakistan. The attack seems similar to the Predator strike that killed al Liby last month. Currently reports indicate between 8-13 dead.

Nobody has said who made the strike, and no word on High Value Targets yet, but here's the interesting snippet.

Missile Strike on Pakistan Militant Hideout Kills 13

They said four unidentified "guests" had arrived late Wednesday at the destroyed house

I like this part. Shows that they're most likely to have been Jihadists.

Another security official said most of the dead were Arabs.[/QUOTE]

The rumor mill is really buzzing.

There is are three rumors right now that are really going into overtime. Hard to keep up with all the attempts at verification.

Here are the basics. (Remember, its all speculation right now.)

1. Adam's laptop was found in the wreckage of the strike that killed al-Liby.

2. The latest strike may have gotten al-Zawahiri.

3. A book by al-Zawahiri is about to be released. Will it discuss the questions he was going to answer?

I'd love an E Copy of that book. It's always nice to see their writing.

Wouldn't pay for it, though.

Zawahiri has released a new "video" reportedly calling for attacks on the U.S. and Israel.

Qaida al-Jihad (al-Sahab): "Looming Victory For Gaza" by Sheikh Ayman al-Zawahiri

Stillshot image. No english subtitles. Transcript here.
Posted at the usual locations. Looking for audio analysis.

News reports:

Here I was hoping one of those rocket attacks got him.

I skipped posting about al Zawahiri releasing audio about 2 weeks ago, where he answered questions that people asked him, because there was another thread about it.

However, a new audio was released Thursday/Friday, (Arabic only) at the usual places.

The audio is unusual because it reportedly mentions Gen. Petraeus testimony to congress last week. What the media is overlooking is that the timing is unusual. It normally takes about a month for a tape to be released.

Last time he released a tape this quickly I started this thread. Zawahiri reportedly came close to being caught that time, and was apparently on the run for several months after that.

He must feel very comforable where he is to make such a quick release. I'm anticipating, (speculating), that because of the quick release there will again be some whispered insights or reports about his possible location within a few days.

Maybe the troops at The Bridge will get lucky and be allowed to send a special package his way shortly. If that happens I would expect that a rockets red glare will be seen in the Miramshah - Bannu - Tank area of Pakistan.

Part 2 of Zawahiri answering questions posed to him on websites has been released
(Arabic Only).

He sure is cranking them out fast these last few weeks.
Hopefully that will provide more info to track him down.

A machine translation of Zawahiri's answers in part 2 has been posted.

He seems upset about a lack of money and volunteers.

The Associated Press headlines his comments that Iran created the conspiracy theory that al Qaeda didn't do 911 and that its a lie.

CNN's article about it stressed that he indicates attacks on the west are "in the works".

Australia News Network emphasizes that he complains about Hamas.

albawaba in Jordan points out that he is begging for help in Iraq.

A new Bin Laden message entitled "Causes of the Conflict", will be released soon.

A new Zawahiri message will probably follow.

An announcement on the islamist forum Ikhlaas says another speech by Osama Bin Laden will be released soon.

The news services say that it is going to be a "strong" message to Muslims.

As expected, just 2 weeks after the OBL releases, Zawahiri has now released a new speach.

He talks a lot about setbacks, Palestine, and he even talks about a conspiracy.

Another missle strike in Pakistan has people wondering if we got Zawahiri.

Zawahiri and OBL both appear in a new video.

KARACHI: Over the completion of one year of Lal Masjid (Red Mosque) tragedy, Al-Qaeda in a video tape released in Urdu language for the first time has condemned the operation and paid tribute to Ghazi Abdul Rasheed and his comrades.

The video released by Al-Shahab, media cell of Al-Qaeda contained statements of Osama Bin Laden, Ayman Al-Zawahiri and other leaders of the organisation. The videotape was sent to a private TV channel of Pakistan.

All the leaders paid great tributes to Ghazi Abdul Rasheed and other martyrs and urged people of Pakistan to play their role against the anti-Islamic forces. Tributes were also paid to Baitullah Mehsud and Naek Muhammad for their role.

The video tape also accepted the responsibility of London bomb attacks and also contained the details of actions carried out by the organisation around the world.

Latest about zawahiri

Unverified Letter Obtained By CBS News Urgently Requests Doctor To Treat Ayman al Zawahiri

CBS News has obtained a copy of an intercepted letter from sources in Pakistan, which urgently requests a doctor to treat Zawahiri. He's believed to be somewhere in Pakistan's remote tribal areas of Pakistan.

The letter refers to Sheikh Dr. Ayman ul Zawahiri by name - and says that he is in "severe pain" and his "injuries are infected."

It is reportedly written by local Taliban leader, Baitullah Mehsud, whose signature and seal are visible on the letter.

The letter is dated July 29 - one day after a U.S. air strike that killed al Qaeda weapons expert Abu Khabab al-Masri, and five other Arabs in South Waziristan.


Pakistan: More Rumors of Al-Zawahiri's Death

Al Qaeda No. 2 Ayman al-Zawahiri is rumored to have been killed in a July 28 U.S. airstrike in Pakistan.

Report says attack may have killed Zawahiri

An online report says U.S. government sources are trying to confirm that an airstrike in northwestern Pakistan has killed al-Qaida's deputy leader, Ayman Zawahiri.

According to the subscription report at Stratfor, the airstrike was on July 28, and sources were reporting that an announcement from the U.S. government is expected soon.

Still patiently waiting and watching after all this time.

Not a lot of good info since a lot of their websites disappeared a while back.

Here's the latest.

Al Qaeda No. 2 hiding in Quetta
Pakistani intelligence source reports al-Zawahiri's location

Tuesday, May 12, 2009
Pakistani intelligence agencies have shared with the CIA their knowledge of al-Zawahiri's location in the Quetta suburbs.

Not that I trust the source, but its a noteable info release.

Here's an interesting tidbit from the article.

Al-Zawahiri's recent movements can be tracked with some specificity. He was positively identified in the North Waziristan Agency of Pakistan in June 2008, and the locations pinpointed where he conducted high-level meetings.

al Zawahiri and Osama released videos this week.

Its only interesting in 3 respects.

1. The order was reveresed. Zawahiri's came before Osama's.

2. Both their statements were warnings about Obama coming to Egypt.
(Obama outsmarted them though, he changed his schedule and went to Saudi Arabia first. Other AQ members had to scramble to put out a statment calling for attack in Saudi Arabia on Obama's arrival.)

3. It was released by al Jazeera, not thru the normal web sites.

Thomas discusses his view.

A video by Adam Gadahn has been released.

Let's Continue Our Jihad and Sacrifice

On another note, I've mentioned Bannu Pakistan a couple times. The Pak military appear to be doing some heavy fighting in that area now. I mention it again because it seems that the Miram shah - Bannu - Wana area seem to be the area al Zawahiri has been seen the most.
