#3 Part of this story is that Zawahiri's son is detained in Bagram, and they are going to use his son's DNA for the test. Last I heard his son had not been captured. I was also unaware that the two "donors" had to be at teh same military base for a DNA test.

#4 Al Zawahiri's brother, Mohammed, is being held by the Eqyptians. I wouldn't think a sample would be too hard to obtain if one is not already on hand.

#5 There was a story that he had been captured and was spilling his gutz. The Talibs said it wasn't so, but that just means it's 50-50 it was. This story keeps trying to sneak back; home begins to stir within my manly chest, before being sternly smacked back down...

#7 was in the escaping car

Sokay,... let try again later. Remember to put up road blocks so the simple (albeit mechnically inclined) woodcutters don't slip away ina motor vehicles.

#8 GK -- I heard a few weeks ago that the US took a sample from AZ's brother in Egypt.

This whole story is consistent with what Col. David Hunt has been saying on Fox. And the idea that the Pakis found the car shot up and crashed into a wall is entirely consistent with a TF 121 deniable (shoot,) snatch and grab on Pak territory.

#9 Ummmm... Yeah. Hope. I got hope in my manly chest, thumbs where my fingers should be.

#10 As I posted a few days ago: things will be clarified sooner or later, once the people at the top of the chain decide to do so.

I don't wish to violate a friend's confidence. Or my old oaths. So I cannot say and can neither confirm nor deny anything.

Dammit. Guys dont ask me.

Hang in there - a free press eventually gets to things.
