    Default 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.

    Al-Zawahri was an Egyptian who took over Al-Qaeda after the U.S. killed its longtime leader, Osama bin Laden, in 2011.

    Although he never achieved the household name status of his predecessor, Al-Zawahiri’s killing is nonetheless a major win for the United States in the ongoing struggle against Islamist terrorism, although Al-Qaeda is not as strong a group as it once was and other extremist outfits have gained ground.

    In a statement to reporters, a senior Biden 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.”

    The Senate Intelligence Committee has been briefed on the strike, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) told POLITICO.

Would think after nearly 50 years that cognitive dissonance from "serve the Pope or die" drug trafficking enforcement more perfect union with Islam "death to the infidels" there would be less condescending arrogance beyond the pleasure principle of "man is God" interpretation of "one nation under God with equal justice under law."

    If u dont know u have no bossiness talking about any thing in the ME



    Soleimani had overseen a network of paramilitaries, militias and terrorist groups across the Middle East and beyond that furthered Iranian interests by often undermining those of the United States and its allies. The Pentagon, for instance, had linked him to the introduction into Iraq of sophisticated roadside bombs that killed hundreds of U.S. troops and wounded thousands more during the peak of fighting there in the mid-2000s.

    Hitler also didn't kill anyone on US soil...so it would have been bad for the US to have taken him out in 1939? My God u are one stupid fuck

    I’m good with killing all terrorists and enemies of the Constitution, foreign or domestic.

    I think the problem with killing Qasem was location (Baghdad) but I’m good with taking him out. Unfortunately, some US servicemen paid for that with their own blood. Sad.
