“Classified tallies made available to The Washington Post have identified 28 of the approximately 30 names on the [CIA’s Counterterrorist Center’s] unpublished HVT [high-value targets] List. Half–14–are known to be dead or in custody. Those at large include three of the five men on the highest echelon: bin Laden, his deputy Ayman Zawahiri and operational planner Saif al-Adel.”
