More about Biden’s claimed murder of Ayman Al Zawahiri. Considering the quality of the Biden administration’s past reports about Afghanistan (they reported that no civilians had been killed in a drone strike when they had been, for example) and the withdrawal from the country last year, skepticism seems logical.
Fred Fleitz, who is the former chief of staff of Trump’s National Security Council and a 19-year veteran of the CIA, is not convinced that President Biden actually succeeded in killing al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri in a drone strike in Afghanistan.
Fleitz claims he is “skeptical” that a CIA drone strike took out the terrorist a year after the botched Afghanistan withdrawal. There has been no proof of death yet. Only the bragging over the dispatching of the monster by an administration that has reportedly had to walk back a number of similar claims.
In a strike that appeared to Fleitz to be far too convenient, Zawahiri was said to have been taken out on a balcony outside of Taliban-controlled Kabul by the CIA using a drone, according to multiple reports. Although the Taliban confirmed there was a drone strike, they notably did not confirm that Zawahiri was killed.

“I’m afraid that they have a habit of saying things that are not accurate,” Fleitz bluntly charged. “I hope that this is accurate and I want to give Joe Biden credit, but I also want Congress to investigate this to find out what really happened.”
“White House spokesman John Kirby said the United States did not have DNA confirmation of Zawahiri’s death. “We’re not going to get that confirmation,” he said on CNN, describing “visual confirmation” along with other sources.
