Al-Zawahri reportedly targeted, missed by U.S. drone aircraft
Unlike MOST of the "Number Twos" that they get, Zawahri would be a REAL one.
But do you remember what Bush said when the same thing happened during Clinton's presidency, except it was a near-miss on the Big Cheese, Bin Laden himself? Clinton bombed the location that Bin Laden was at, and the drone missed because OBL had actually left a short time before. Well, this is how Bush characterized THAT unsuccessful attempt:
"I'm not gonna fire a $2 million missile at a $10 empty tent and hit a camel in the butt." - Attribution
I suppose if a Democrat said the exact same thing about Bush's unsuccessful attempt, Bush would accuse him of "giving aid and comfort to the enemy."
