Dead? Has the sniffles? Please?
Ayman al-Zawahiri – the second most powerful leader in al Qaeda and Osama Bin Laden’s No. 2 – may be critically wounded and possibly dead, CBS News chief foreign affairs correspondent Lara Logan reports exclusively.
CBS News has obtained a copy of an intercepted letter from sources in Pakistan, which urgently requests a doctor to treat al-Zawahiri. He’s believed to be somewhere in Pakistan’s remote tribal areas of Pakistan.
The letter refers to Sheikh Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri by name – and says that he is in “severe pain” and his “injuries are infected.”
Unfortunately, Dr. Rusty Shackleford (who is psychotically obsessed with stuff like this) doubts it. Should’ve expected it from CBS News. Meh.
Swell. Rain on the parade. We’ll keep hoping, though.
In other news, Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi is still dead.
