U.S. kills Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahri in drone strike

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.”

One of the people briefed on the operation said the strike in Kabul was led by the CIA.

Biden tried the same stunt once before when he was looking unpopular , how many civi's did he kill this time
CNN fairy tales

Ol' Joe Assured Us Al Qaeda had been ELIMINATED from Afghanistan when he Withdrew US Troops from the country & left behind $86 Billion in military hardware so the US Trained Afghan Military would prevent Al Qaeda from Returning EVER.

Right?? ... dunno

Trump passed on taking him out, didn't recognize his name. No kidding.

the Guy died once before of Asthma!
Seems he has as many Lives as a Cat!laugh
You know when Trump passes, he'll be remembered for many positive things...you not so much.
already some conflicts on whether o'biden did anything right this time. odds are on the high side of "NO!".

i suppose people would grasp at something positive to say about o'biden since there hasn't been anything thus far.

that's why so many still focus on trump i think. so many policy successes that the demonrats need that target destroyed at all costs.

more cold water; is there absolute confirmation? with out actual confirmation it's just a claim to a few seconds of stardom. more will, or at least should, be asking about full confirmation. many drone strikes take place. where's the confirmation for this terrorist leader, ayman al-zawahri?
Willy will be remembered for many positive things. professor
I am stunned by flattery !!
Willy, I like to know why the lie what was it that they wanted to accomplish by lying about this?wave
So what , Trump was not prepared to score political points with US voters by killing a muslim to boost election chances .
Your leftist neighbor down the street is far and away more of a danger to our society than some muslim warlord halfway around the world.
