BREAKING: Ayman al-Zawahiri is Al Qaeda’s New ‘Emir’
This is breaking news: Ayman al-Zawahiri has officially been named ‘emir’ of Al Qaeda. This makes him the successor of Obama bin Laden, who was taken out by a team of Navy Seals earlier this month.
(The best) Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf reports that it has read classified documents from the Dutch secret intelligence organization (AIVD).
According to the documents, Al-Zawahiri was appointed as Al Qaeda’s new leader during a meeting on May 9, a week after the death of OBL.
“On May 9, the leadership of Al Qaeda elected Al-Zawahiri during a meeting in the tribal areas, between Afghanistan and Pakistan”, an intelligence source told the newspaper.
And that’s not all: according to Dutch intelligence, the monster from Maadi (Egypt) himself proposed to elect Sa’ad bin Laden, one of Bin Laden’s sons. He refused, however. Al Qaeda’s leaders then proceeded to appoint Al-Zawahiri.
All those present swore an oath of allegiance to the Egyptian terrorist (bayat).
Dutch intelligence sources believe Al Qaeda will announce the appointment in a couple of days time.
Sa’ad bin Laden has officially been appointed to Al Qaeda’s Shura council. This means that he is now officially one of the organization’s highest ranking members. It’s not difficult to imagine that he may succeed Al-Zawahiri when we take him out.
Finally, the meeting was held in the Kurram region in Pakistan, which once again forces us to wonder just how seriously Pakistan takes this whole war on terror. NATO forces were informed about the meeting by local informants one day after it took place.
