Al-Zawahiri Dead, Conspiracy Suspected

STRATFOR (subscription only) is reporting that Pakistan is rife with rumors that Ayman al-Zawahiri, former surgeon and current #2 in al-Qaeda, has been killed in a US airstrike.

Bill Roggio of Long War Journal demurs and I am personally agnostic beyond appreciating the confusion this will sow in al Qaeda until the situation sorts itself out.

If al-Zawahiri is dead I can fill you in on the left’s narrative.

He was actually taken prisoner months/years ago and has been held in some secret CIA prison. Now the military has drugged him, taken him to a remote site, and hit him with an airstrike. They did this to help John McCain win the election.

How else do you explain it happening right now? Hmmmm?
