According to a Pentagon official, Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri is still in Pakistan. “We have no information to indicate that he is anywhere else than in Pakistan,” Pentagon spokesman George Little said on Wednesday.

Earlier this week, the Al Qaeda leader who took over control of the terrorist group after Osama bin Laden was killed, released a video claiming credit for the current Arab Uprisings. In a 62 minute long message titled “The Dawn of Imminent Victory,” Zawahiri said “The popular revolutions are a form of defeat for the United States” and he hoped for “a gloomy, bitter cold American Winter.”

The video also contained footage of Osama bin Laden before his death.
