AYMAN AL ZAWAHIRI
“Ayman Mohammed Rabie al-Zawahiri, (Arabic: أيمن محمد ربيع الظواهري ʾAyman Muḥammad Rabīʿ aẓ-Ẓawāhirī, born 19 June 1951) is an Egyptian physician, Islamic theologian and current leader of the militant Islamist organization al-Qaeda. Ayman al-Zawahiri is a former member of Islamist organizations which have both orchestrated and carried out multiple attacks on the continents of North America, Asia, Africa and the Middle East.
The U.S. State Department has offered a US$25 million dollar reward for information leading to al-Zawahiri’s apprehension since the 9/11 attacks and remains in effect. He is under worldwide sanctions by the United Nations Security Council 1267 Committee as a member or affiliate of al-Qaeda.”

The Triple Agent: The Al-Qaeda Mole Who Infiltrated the CIA
“This seemed to be paydirt for the CIA, which worked very closely with bin Zeid and the Mukhabarat on this case. Balawi’s medical description of Zawahiri matched what the CIA knew. No Westerner had seen Zawahiri since 2002. Panetta briefed other top national security officials, including President Obama. While Warrick’s description and analysis of events is generally credible, it does include some questionable assertions such as that bin Laden was essentially a figurehead and was actually less important than Zawahiri.

In December 2009, Balawi met Sheikh Saeed al-Masri, al-Qaeda’s number three, in North Waziristan. Al-Masri plotted to use a staged video of Balawi and Zawahiri to lure bin Zeid. (154–56) The trap worked.”
The Real Ayman al-Zawahiri
“Monday February 18, 2002
Ayman al-Zawahiri, has been captured and jailed in Tehran, a leading Iranian newspaper reported yesterday.
Zawahiri, the founder of the Egyptian Islamic Jihad, was arrested several days ago and has been imprisoned in the city’s Evin jail, where political prisoners are usually held, the Hayat-e-Nou newspaper said.
The paper is regarded as reliable and is run by Hadi Khamenei, a leading legislator and the brother of Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.”
Whistleblower: Al-Qaeda Chief Was US Asset – Did State Department Block Sunday Times Exposé of Pentagon Terrorist Ties?
“While it is widely recognised that the CIA sponsored bin Laden’s networks in Afghanistan during the Cold War, the US government claims these ties were severed after the Soviet Union collapsed in 1989.
But according to Edmonds, this narrative is false. “Not just bin Laden, but several senior ‘bin Ladens’ were transported by US intelligence back and forth to the region in the late 1990s through to 2001”, she confirmed to this author, including “senior mujahideen figures such as Ayman al-Zawahiri” – Osama bin Laden’s right-hand-man, who since the latter’s demise has taken over as al-Qaeda’s new leader.
“In the late 1990s, all the way up to 9/11, al-Zawahiri and other mujahideen operatives were meeting regularly with senior US officials in the US embassy in Baku to plan their Balkan operations,” said Edmonds. “These operations were being run from a secret section of the Pentagon with its own office” – the name, Edmonds did not disclose. She clarified, “the FBI counterintelligence investigation which was tracking these targets, along with their links to US officials, was known as ‘Gladio B’, and was kickstarted in 1997.”
