Pakistani and U.S. forces may have finally managed to flush bin Laden’s number 2

Ayman al-Zawahiri, who is Osama bin Laden’s deputy, may have been killed in an airstrike. No truth to the rumor that Al Haig has assumed command.

If these al Qaeda guys keep getting whacked, Al-Jazeera will be forced off the air due to a programming shortage.

Sat. morning update: Now it looks like al-Zawahiri may not have been in the building. Even the best squirrels can miss a nut once in a while.
