The US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, recently said that Al-Qaeda's new Chief Ayman al-Zawahiri is residing in Pakistan.

Yes, surely he is living in Pakistan and was among the faithfuls offering Juma prayers at the Shah Faisal Mosque this week. From there he, reportedly, went to a five star hotel in Islamabad and had his lunch.

This was followed by an evening trip to Daman-e-Koh where he mingled with the public and discussed the world political developments. He was last seen submitting his visa application at the US Embassy for permanent residency.

Ms Clinton you are absolutely right, we second your analysis!
