    Washington: Ayman Al
    Zawahiri, who took over
    leadership of al-Qaeda after
    the death of Osama bin Laden
    last year, remains in the Af-
    Pak region, a top US counter- terrorism official said on
    Sunday. "We believe he (Zawahiri) is in
    that region of the world, as
    well as other al-Qaeda leaders
    that continue to borough into
    areas of...the Federally
    Administered Tribal Areas of Pakistan. That's why we're
    working very closely with
    our Pakistani partners," John
    Brennan, the Deputy National
    Security Advisor to US
    President Barack Obama, told CNN in an interview. "We're not going to relent
    until they're brought to
    justice one way or the other,"
    Brennan said responding to
    questions on the whereabouts
    of al-Zawahiri. "We demonstrated the ability
    to do that with bin Laden. We
    are in constant consultation
    with our Pakistani counter
    terrorism partners on a
    regular basis about how we can do this as soon as
    possible," he said. Brennan also acknowledged
    that al-Zawahiri is now the
    number one target of the US. "They have to go. It's an
    organization that's dedicated
    to murder and mayhem and
    we as well as other countries
    of the world are determined
    to make sure that that happens," he said. Al-Zawahiri took over as al-
    Qaeda chief about a month
    after bin Laden was killed by
    US Navy SEALs in a covert raid
    in Abbottabad on May 2 last
    year. The US is also focused on the
    al-Qaeda in Yemen, he said. "There are leaders of al Qaeda
    in the Arabian Peninsula that
    we are focusing on. And
    we're trying to make sure
    that they're brought to
    justice. Again, one way or the other, we're going to work
    closely with our Yemeni
    partners," he said. "Al-Qaeda in the Arabian
    Peninsula, which is located in
    Yemen, is involved in a very
    active insurgency against the
    Yemeni government. And
    we're working closely with the Yemeni government, their
    security, intelligence, and
    military forces, to ensure that
    that growth of al Qaeda in
    Yemen can be blunted,"
    Brennan said. "At the same time they've
    demonstrated as well as the
    capability to try to carry out
    attacks against the homeland.
    You know Umar Farouk
    Abdulmutallab with the underwear bomber as well as
    the printer cartridge caper," he
    said. "So what we're trying to do is
    to make sure that they're not
    able to carry out those
    attacks. But we have to work
    very closely with the
    Yemenis. We're doing everything in Yemen in full
    cooperation with our Yemeni
    partners. We are going to do
    that," he said. Related Stories

    Simply amazing! With all the muscle and money powers a country possesses, still only catch half of the duo most wanted men after a decade.

    If Bush Jr, at the beginning when the whole world was behind him, mobilized his CIA with helps from his allies' MI6, Mossad, etc the result would have been better. At least wouldn't cost that many lives and money and a lot of good wills were lost too. (sigh) One man's decision.
