Taunted by Al-Qaeda (CNN)
From CNN, :
Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf has accused Osama bin Laden’s top deputy of taunting him and vowed to press on with an offensive against al Qaeda, saying, “I want to eliminate all of them.”
Musharraf made his comment just days after Ayman al-Zawahiri, bin Laden’s second-in-command, urged Pakistani tribes to resist government troops and to overthrow Musharraf.
“Now that he is taunting me, well, all that I would like to say, I want to eliminate all of them,” Musharraf told ABC’s This Week.
Musharraf survived two assassination attempts in December last year, both of which he blamed on al Qaeda.
Asked if he was confident he would get Zawahiri and bin Laden before they get him, Musharraf said, “I can’t be 100 percent sure. I mean, I’m quite loose at my security, but I believe in destiny. … I’m very sure that we’ll eliminate this al Qaeda from our region.”
OK, Pervez, but what about the madrassas?
