Biden Claims Drone Strike Killed Al Qaeda Leader

According to reports, Ayman Al-Zawahiri, the former Al Qaeda second-in-command behind Osama bin Laden, has been killed in Afghanistan by an American drone strike. Al-Zawahiri was apparently holed up in a location adjacent to the now shuttered U.S. embassy in Kabul. Apparently it was necessary to end the 20+ year U.S. occupation of Afghanistan that cost more than a trillion dollars to kill a single Al Qaeda operative long after the group had ceased to be a threat.

Jimmy and his panel of The Dive’s Jackson Hinkle and America’s comedian Kurt Metzger discuss this latest salvo in the war on terror, if the Biden administration is looking for a distraction and whether the public should care about Al Qaeda anymore.

  1. "Drone strike"? Why is the CIA dropping bombs? Who are these people accountable to? What are they even doing over there?

    I think that I'm fairly well informed, and I really don't know how to answer those questions.

  2. So when An organization is terrorizing the middle east, with one attack on the US, it's ok to attack?
    But if an organization, is killing Russians, on the Russian border, Russia should do nothing? 🤫👎

  3. We've been killing the top leader of Al Qaeda since 2001. You would think that we would have eliminated them all by now. Nope. We have to murder at least one of them whenever things look bad for one or the other nearly universally hated political party, that holds monopoly power in the US.

    "We hate you Brandon/TRUUUUMP!!!/Obummer!/Bush 2"
    "Look you guys! I killed a dude in the Middle East. Do you love me now?"

  4. "Fun" fact: Al-Qaeda was the name of the database, compiled by the CIA, of all the Moudjahidins (US-sponsored Afghani freedom fighters back in the 80s) .
    Look it up, and draw your own conclusion.
    Mine is any kind of politics: geopolitics, domesticl and international is a form of performative art.
    The real question any mentally healthy adults should ask themselves is: what is the end goal?

  5. The state department has it covered. The day it happened they said America would be safer. The next day they said we would be less safe because of possible revenge action because of the killing.

  6. The surprise end is: No one can confirm his identity! although the handicapped 129 years old is no longer actually a threat even to his toilet seat but Biden who desperately needs this can't confirm his identity. Republicans are going to win both senate and presidential in landslides, while Sam Seder is still going after progressives

  7. Jimmy Dore's show wouldn't exist without Kurt Metzger laughs.
    The main reason I see this show is that Metzger's laughs makes me feel lighter, my personal problems just vanish.
    I feel relieved, happy, light as a feather.
    Keep up with the laughs, Metzger, we need you!
