It took nearly 21 years for the US to finally depose the al Qaeda leader Aiman al-Zawahiri from the terrorist battlefield. That’s what President Biden said Monday night Osama Bin Ladens longtime deputy was killed on Sunday in a counter-terrorism operation in Afghanistan that others have confirmed was a drone strike.
As noted by Mr. Biden, the strike brings another measure of justice for the victims of the September 11 attacks, which killed nearly 3,000 Americans on US soil. The 71-year-old Egyptian co-founded al Qaeda and helped bin Laden set up an operation that could spread radical Islam and murder innocents without remorse.
