IHT has some really bad news

"Officials said Ayman al-Zawahiri, the deputy Al Qaeda leader, might have narrowly escaped from the South Waziristan tribal village."

Don't we have predators with Hellfire missiles surrounding the area to cover this type of possibility.

The Australian reports further

" A LandCruiser at high speed bursting out of a tribal compound in Pakistan's South Waziristan region was just the latest infuriating setback in the US's quest to bring down the top of the al-Qa'ida tree.
The car, followed by two armoured vehicles and a phalanx of heavily armed militants able to wipe out dozens of crack troops sent to blast the terrorists from their nest, is believed to have contained Ayman al-Zawahiri, right-hand man to Osama bin Laden."

Let's hope this is not true.
