al-Zawahiri May Be Dead

Or not. Or maybe so. Or not. Or maybe so.

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 Ayman al-Zawahiri, Osama bin Laden's top lieutenant, may have been among them.
I wish I could muster the energy to give a shit, but I just can’t. Possibly getting the #2 man in an organization that perpetrated a four-year old attack which has repeatedly served as a justification for undermining our civil liberties and was tacitly linked to a completely unrelated regime to rationalize an unjust war, when the mastermind of said attack still hasn’t been “smoked out”—either dead or alive—just isn’t making me feel particularly orgasmic.

But then again, I’m a traitorous liberal, so what do you expect?
