Meet the new boss

Here he is folks, the new boss of al-Qaeda. His name is Ayman al-Zawahiri. He's 59 years old, an ophthalmic surgeon and committed killer who joined the Muslim Brotherhood at the age of 14. His hatred credentials can't be faulted as the USA killed his wife and three of his six children by bombing a Taliban building in which they were staying in Afghanistan back in 2001 (after 9/11).

Dr al-Z is known to be more of a doer than the late Osama Bin Laden, and unlike OBL al-Z has good contacts right across the muslim world, having lived and worked in Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Iran. This means he spans the Sunni/Shia divide and should be able to get people to focus on the serious business of killing infidels rather than fighting among themselves.
