Not surprising, but what do we do now that we know? Bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri have enjoyed Iranian hospitality for 5 years, along with three other unnamed "high-ranking" al Qaeda members. Home to bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri has been the town of Savzevar or Sabzevar
Savzevar, a small town of about a quarter of a million inhabitants, is connected by road to
Tehranand Mashhadand has a small airport. A center for producing grapes and raisins, its location is remote and difficult to access because it is enclosed by lofty mountains and a salt desert 50,000 square kilometers in area.
DEBKAfile's counter-terror sources disclose that the purpose of airing their precise whereabouts at this time, aside from implicating the Turkish leader, was first, to warn al Qaeda's leaders that their hideout was blown and they had better move on - which would make them easier to catch; and, second, to nudge US president Barak Obama into a decision to go after them.Really, what do we do now? Bin Laden is in Iran...and we know it, and...what do we do now? Read the story at DEBKAfile, including what American intelligence knew about American targets by mid-May, 2010. As you will read in the DEBKAfile, they have a theory about why this story is breaking now, and that basically is, since Kuwait broke the story to get these two scumbags on the run so they can be hunted down by the good guys. Holger Awakens, on the other hand, has another theory. Read it at Holger Awakens.
