The US has announced that it has killed the al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri. The timing of his death at this time is somewhat questionable.
After all, Zawahiri had been on the run for 20 years since the 9/11 attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people in the United States. Now the US announces it had killed him after leaving the country it had occupied. At the same time, it cant be forgotten that the US has supported al-Qaeda in one form or another.
