Pakistanis May Be Near al-Qaida’s No. 2: “ISLAMABAD, Pakistan – Pakistani forces believe they have cornered and perhaps wounded Osama bin Laden (news – web sites)’s deputy, Ayman al-Zawahri, in a battle near the Afghan border, three senior Pakistani officials said Thursday, the first major break in the world’s most intense manhunt in more than a year. “

With any luck Pakistan will nail this guy, if indeed they do have him cornered. While this is happening the entire world is watching. The Pakastani government is solidly supportive of eradicating this menace, in contrast to the Europeans that seem used to the rest of the world fighting on their behalf and hiding their heads in the sand. The coalition countries not included. France and Germany should take note. – zzb
