By what means would the U.S. be able to have Al-Zawahiri's DNA
on file? Yes, I know that they would be able to prove he died by getting a DNA sample from a family member, but what is the likelihood of that as well? It's just that every time I hear this (I believe they said this about Bin Laden as well), it just sounds phony me. I'm at the point of questioning just about every bit of news I hear, and I know that if the U.S. wanted to announce that they had killed Al-Zawahiri, they would bring up the DNA thing, and in my opinion, it doesn't ring true!

3. I have wondered that, as well--how likely is it that members of the
families would just willingly hand over DNA samples to THIS admin? shows the level of contempt they have for our intelligence.

7. Oh, I'm sure CIA is capable of kidnapping a family member
or two and extracting DNA from them.

5. I heard this morning - we have his brother in custody somewhere
NPR reported Zawahiri's brother is in custody and we have obtained his DNA. So - they'll try to match what they find with the brother's.

10. It's from his health insurance application in his Halliburton file.
allegedly?

Don't all those guys work for Cheney's private army?

Kinda hard to tell, since no one benefits from this war more.
