Washington (CNN) – Sen. Dianne Feinstein tells CNN’s Wolf Blitzer Ayman al-Zawahiri is likely in Pakistan but doesn’t think he is being protected by the government.
“Do I believe that they - the government is harboring him? No. Do I believe the government might know, or the ISI might know likely places where he would be? Yes. Do I believe that the ISI could find him if they really wanted to? Yes,” the Democratic chair of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence said on CNN’s “The Situation Room.”
Ayman al-Zawahiri, the longtime deputy to Osama bin Laden, will take over leadership of al Qaeda, according to a statement posted on several jihadist websites Thursday.
Feinstein said that she hopes Pakistan will press to find the leader.
"It makes no sense for the Pakistanis to want to harbor terrorists," the senator said. "Because if you're real terrorists, they don't stop. They will one day come after Pakistan.”

Warmonger DiFi is deliberately kept out of the loop until the last minute because she can't keep a secret. When CIA officials were trying to tell her they had located bin Laden she didn't even understand who they were talking about. Her input and a dollar will buy you a small fries at McDonald's.
What a revelation. Now that you have identified his location, what do you plan to do about it?
Stop Aiding the Pakys then!!
Of course he is in Pakistan, probably with Jimmy Hoffa.
It is high time that America recognizes Pakistan as a terrorist country.I will not be surprised if we find second in command of alqueda holed up in Pakistan.AMERICA SHOULD NOT DEAL WITH THE TERRORISTS WITH FEAR.You cannot continue to give billions of hard earned tax payers money to a terrorist country to safe guard their nuclear arsenal.Pakistans aim has always been to destroy INDIA and annex Kashmir.To that end,they will continue to support terrorists everywhere whether in USA ,UK,EURPOE DOES NOT MATTER TO THEM.
