Is it finally curtains for Mr. Jihad?
Breaking, from CNN:
Pakistani forces have surrounded what may be a “high-value” al Qaeda target in Pakistan near the border with Afghanistan, President Pervez Musharraf told CNN.
“We feel that there may be a high-value target,” Musharraf told CNN. “I can’t say who.”
The ferociousness of their resistance indicates that the al Qaeda fighters are protecting someone particularly significant, he said.
The military asked locals to leave and is flying helicopters overhead, “pounding” the area with artillery, he said.
U.S. and Pakistani officials have said they believe al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden probably is in Pakistan near the border with Afghanistan.
ADDENDUM: It ain’t Osama, it’s just Zawahiri.
