According to CNN, US launched an air attack on some remote village in Pakistan where Al Qaeda #2 was hiding and it seems that he was killed there. Also, it seems that nobody knows what happened to him.

DAMADOLA, Pakistan (AP) -- Weeping villagers dug through the rubble of homes destroyed in an apparent pre-dawn air strike that killed at least 18 people in a remote Pakistani tribal village, the second such unexplained attack near the volatile Afghan border within a week.
Residents of Damadola, a hillside hamlet about 7 kilometers (4 miles) inside northwestern Pakistan, said Friday that children and women were among the dead. They recounted hearing aircraft flying overhead before bombs or missiles crashed through the Pashtun tribal village -- blasts that were felt by people miles away.

Quoting L-188 (Reply 9): they didn't get him, but killed 17 innocent villagers
If they where sheltering him....they weren't innocent.
In legal terms, they where harboring a fugitive and accessories to 3000 murders
Can you PROVE that they were sheltering him ? hardly ! your conclusion rather sounds like an accusation without real basis.
The killed and the wounded villagers ARE fully INNOCENT until anything different is proven. Beside the point that around 10 of the dead were children.
Simply looks as if the CIA had failed to do proper work. Either he has NOT or NEVER been there, or they simply "marked" the wrong house.
We have, and will continue to fight this war against terrorism.
You and others on here forget that this is war and in war bad things happen to people. Innocent and guilty. Just ask the civilians of Dresden or Nanking.
War sucks if you are in the middle of it. Lets not try to simplify the morality of your own high horse.
This war started on September 11th and we will finish it at a time and place that WE will determine. Warning: Hang around bad people, expect to possibly get blasted. Sorry for that. Life is cheap. Just ask Haji the human bomb. You want to send outrage....send it there. They "love" civilians.
of course, you US-Americans just as most nations fight against terrorism, but the expression "war" is misleading. It is like "war against the mafia" "war against drugs" "war against fascism" "war against torture" "war against poverty" "war against dullness" "war against ignorance" "war against arrogance" etc. The word is misused in a propagandistic way

Quoting Jacobin777 (Reply 21): as unintelligent GW-B is, at least he's got a few more brain cells than you do...
You attack me because you know I'm right.
I'm all for fairness and equality. Pakistanis can burn my flag and they can expect me to burn theirs in return. They can wish death and destruction upon my countrymen and I'll wish death and destruction upon theirs. It works both ways you know. Nobody gets special treatment from me as I don't play that "political correctness" game.
