Maybe It's Not The Terrorist...

But, it could be Ayman al-Zawahri, who is arguably more influential in day to day al-Qaida operations than Osama Bin Laden at this point.

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (AP) - Pakistani troops believe they have surrounded al-Qaida No. 2 Ayman al-Zawahri in an operation near the Afghan border, three senior Pakistani officials told The Associated Press on Thursday.

The officials, who spoke to AP on condition of anonymity, said intelligence indicated the Egyptian-born al-Zawahri has been cornered in an operation that began Tuesday in South Waziristan involving hundreds of troops and paramilitary rangers.

Excellent news, if it pans out.
