Yeah funny how the Dems are pulling all this out of their back pockets before election time. Biden can’t wait to share this with all of us. He still owes us gas money.

This is right out of the Dems play book. While they are pushing thru the big tax hike and the Green new deal they do the " Look over here, Look over here deception".

Taliban allowed him in Kabul after promising not to harbor terrorists in Afghanistan after our surrender.I bet we knew where he was the whole time and needed to kill him when poll#s were untenable.He didn't realize he was a fatted calf

From: scentman

I'm with spike, everything the darkside does is calculated to soften the hearts of on the fence sheep... do not make the mistake of falling for this "wag the dog" at election time. Biden is as phony as his hair plugs, false teeth, and mood drugs.

From: t-roy
02-Aug-22
Hopefully they did indeed, kill the POS. The article makes it sound like Biden did practically everything but actually fly the drone. I’d be surprised if he stayed awake in the meetings long enough to even know which country they were targeting.

From: Catscratch
02-Aug-22
Wait! I thought a president taking out a bad guy with a drone was going to cause WW3. Where's the media and democrats on this travesty!?!?

I guess enjoying yourself on a balcony in a safe house is never good idea if you have a target on your back. All that taxpayer money when we have people here on this very site that could have taken him out at 41 yards with a pistol :)

02-Aug-22
Troy I’m sure the briefing with him after the kill shot took place was something along these lines… “Wait we were in Afghanistan? I thought we were in China” -Joe Biden

Hahaha

C'mon you guys, don't fall for this midterm propaganda BS. It was reported that A Z died of natural causes in late 2020. You can't convince me the incompetent o'biden criminal cartel was able to do something like this in a country in which we abandoned all of our on the ground assets who have been rounded up and executed. A country where we are universally hated and despised. Show me his corpse and I'll maybe believe it. Until then it's all political point scoring bs propaganda.

"If you get vaporized by a Drone...."

he wasn't vaporized, he was hit with a Hellfire R9x, a small missile that works kinda like a rage broadhead with six blades. He was chopped into manageable pieces.........allegedly.

From: Shuteye
02-Aug-22
Yeah, that Reaper drone fired the Hellfire and it opens six blades just before impact. They have been doing this for some time. They chopped up a terrorist, riding his motorcycle, late at night. The motorcycle was in pieces as well as the terrorist. Another time they put one though the roof of a car and got the terrorist inside. Some thought it was a dud because there is no explosion. They can pick a target, out of a crowd andnot kill bystanders.

AZ usual, no quality sources cited.

It's comical watching your BDS prevent you from grudgingly admit that, 'Well, shoot, Biden actually scored a point.' Easier to twist up a new conspiracy and smoke it. >;-)

Now rumor has it or the truth, can't tell anymore! That he did of medical complications and not "DRONED"! Also, rumor states this dude died 2 yrs.ago, so what ever???

From: DanaC

Aye, but who started the rumor, and why?

From: keepemsharp

From: DanaC

Convenient that the 'rumor' started just today >;-)

Sounds like it wasn't an aid worker filling water jugs and a bunch of kids like we droned during the Afghanistan pull out. So that's something.

From: spike78
02-Aug-22
Dana, I was curious and looked it up and turns out yes he possibly did die in 2020 of natural causes.

From: azelkhntr

Talk is cheap and until we get confirmation from the Taliban and see his proven dead carcass, I'll not believe a word of this. It didn't happen without pics right?

From: DanaC
02-Aug-22
Yeah, the Taliban is as likely to admit they harbored a terrorist as Trump is to admit he lost >;-)

"Sen. Ted Cruz, Texas Republican, hailed the reports of al-Zawahri’s death.

“This is an important accomplishment. All Americans will breathe easier today knowing Ayman al-Zawahri, the leader of al-Qaeda, has been eliminated,” Mr. Cruz said in a statement. “This strike should be a message to terrorists near and far: if you conspire to kill Americans, we will find and kill you.” "

From: Ucsdryder
02-Aug-22
You guys crack me up. If trump had ordered the strike it would have been the best thing ever, Trump would have been hailed a hero, and meric would have been safer. But since it’s Biden the twist begins. It’s not just the media that likes to spin everything…

Let’s face it, this POS was responsible for the deaths of many Americans, can we put our politics aside once and be happy that he’s nothing more than a shit stain on the concrete.

Take it FWIW.......

""The whereabouts of Zawahiri had long been a mystery. Rumours have spread since late 2020 that al-Zawahiri had died from an illness. A recent report from the UN Analytical Support and Sanctions Monitoring Team confirmed that Zawahiri was living in Afghanistan and communicating freely.

It said that the proof that Al-Zawahiri was alive comes from the video messages issued by the group. The report also warned against the growing strength of terrorist groups including al Qaeda and the Islamic State pose a great threat to the world. The US State Department had offered a reward of up to $25 million for information leading directly to Zawahiri’s capture. (ANI)""

ADM Kirby said they had info a few months ago he may have been in Kabul. They had covert operators confirming he was there and then figuring out his pattern. Kirby made a faux pax and mentioned one of our intel methods....they watched his family members. Probably shouldn't have said that to preserve it's use in future ops. I wouldn't have released that.

From: Mint

Hopefully this will be one of many since Al Qaeda is back in Afghanistan.

From: azelkhntr
03-Aug-22
It's been over a day and a half and I'm still awaiting concrete confirmation from a reliable source such as the Taliban in Kabul that the previously known to be deceased Ayman Zawahiri has been killed. Show me the proof.

03-Aug-22
Maybe the Taliban are having a tough time with that since he's in 75892340572 pieces.

"from a reliable source such as the Taliban in Kabul"

From: Shaft2Long

Can we confirm it actually was a terrorist and not a carload of kids and humanitarian aid workers like last time?

From: azelkhntr
03-Aug-22
Anyone heard of any large mourning riots in any islamic capitals over this. Usually, we see mass riots around that part of the world over an assassination of this magnitude. I especially would expect that Kabul would be on fire over such. Crickets. And yes DaChoad the Taliban in Kabul just happen to be the most reliable source because they are there. Where is the proof? Present it pedo pete or its a lie.

From: APauls

They shouldn't be worried about KE. We all know it's the momentum that kills. What do you think the FOC on that baby is?

03-Aug-22
If everyone thinks you are dead, why would they be looking for him.

I don’t know the truth. I don’t suppose it matters. Someone has already replaced him if he died 2 years ago or three days ago. I’m going to count it as a win.

I agree. Either way he's dead and that's a good thing because the bastard deserved it.

From: DanaC

"If everyone thinks you are dead, why would they be looking for him. "

Because they knew he was not? CIA was smart enough not to take 'rumors' as truth and stayed with the 'blood trail.'

From: azelkhntr
03-Aug-22
^^^^^^ Now I can believe it. But it still doesn't prove it was him does it?

03-Aug-22
Dana, it was a literal statement. Meaning I personally believe the asshat wanted the USA to think he was dead. So, he didn’t have to worry about getting a 5 million grain rage through his cage.

From the looks of the R9X if you gut shoot a terrorist you probably don't have to wait till morning to start tracking.

Azelkhntr complaining about sources is like satan complaining about someone lying.

You have used Info wars on here as a source for pete sake. It looks like your buddy Alex Jones is getting his dues. What a POS of a sub human being…and that’s a source you have used many times.

I’m glad that terrorist POS got his dues. I hope we continue to keep stacking them up.

So, I found a shooter solo ram who has stayed in the same spot for 2 days. Problem is I’m not sure I can get to him in a day hunt. Considering a bivy camp to cut the distance down.

Hope you guys are enjoying the outdoors too.

Matt.

From: tobywon
03-Aug-22
Matt, no bivy camp needed. A R9X should do the job. Works on solo rams that stay in one place as well as a terrorist on a balcony that stays in the same place. The downside, the gutless method is out of the question :)
