Two intelligence sources tell Fox News Al Qaeda leader Ayman Al Zawahiri was killed in the CIA drone strike.
“Over the weekend, the United States conducted a counterterrorism operation against a significant Al Qaeda target in Afghanistan,” the senior administration official told Fox News Monday. “The operation was successful and there were no civilian casualties.”
The United States has killed Ayman al-Zawahiri, the leader of al-Qaeda and one of the world’s most-wanted terrorists, who oversaw the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, alongside the group’s founder, Osama bin Laden, according to U.S. officials familiar with the matter.
Both men escaped U.S. forces in Afghanistan in late 2001, and Zawahiri’s whereabouts had long been a mystery. Bin Laden was killed in a raid by U.S. forces in Pakistan in 2011.
The Associated Press first reported that Zawahiri was killed.
It was not immediately clear where and when Zawahiri died and what element of the U.S. government had carried out the mission. The White House said on Thursday that President Biden would give remarks in the evening about “a successful counterterrorism operation,” but did not mention Zawahiri.

Sara Carter on Democrats’ political agendas: ‘the hypocrisy is palpable’
The hypocrisy is “palpable” Sara Carter told Steve Hilton on his show Sunday. “All you have to do its listen to what the Democrats are saying to know they’re hypocrites” says Carter. They have District Attorneys who allow low bails or no bails and let criminals out on the streets, “so it appears they care about playing politics; and they play these politics against the constitution.”
Carter continues that if one were to take a trip with her down to the border, anyone would see that no one is in charge and it is utter chaos.
