It is being reported that Ayman al-Zawahiri has shuffled off this mortal coil, has kicked the bucket, is pushing up daisies, and possibly enjoying the 72 houris he has been selling other fools into falling for. The verdict is still out whether the Brooklyn Bridge has been sold by this man, but no one in Vegas is betting against it.
The 48 or 72 hour rule is in effect here. Until some smear of DNA is unearthed from the rubble of what was a building in a remote region of Pakistan that proves Ayman al-Zawahiri slept there and died, he enters a realm that is enjoyed by Schrondinger's cat and quantum physics. That of uncertainty, is he alive or dead?
Update: January 14 2006. It looks like the strike missed him and Pakistan is very ticked off at the US. Oh well as long as the US keeps up the skeer and the vermin keeps running, means less free time to plot nefarious schemes.
