Did They Get Zawahiri?

ABC's The Blotter (yes, I know, not the most reliable source) reports that al Qaeda mad doctor Ayman al-Zawahiri was the target of the attack on a Pakistan madrassa (which ABC insists on referring to as a "religious school" - technically correct, I suppose):
Ayman al Zawahiri was the target of a Predator missile attack this morning on a religious school in Pakistan, according to Pakistani intelligence sources.

ABC News has learned the raid was launched after U.S. intelligence received tips and examined Predator reconnaissance indicating that al Qaeda's No. 2 man may have been staying at the school, which is located in the Bajaur region near the village that is thought to be al Qaeda's winter headquarters.
If Zawahiri was killed in the raid, and it is announced, expect the DNC to begin questioning the timing of the attack.
