As Shahab Media Presents: Qaeda's #2 & Anwar al-Awlaki "Cornhole Lessons for the Mujahideen"

Al Qaeda wants part of the action in Egypt

In a new, rare video message from al Qaeda's number two terrorist commander, Ayman al-Zawahiri calls on Arab armies to intervene in Libya to help eject dictator Moammar Gadhafi before "Western aid... turns into invasions."

The hour-plus long video posted online is the first since Egypt's successful revolution and features the Osama bin Laden deputy in a white robe with the barrel of an assault rifle visible at his side. In addition to discussing the bloody fighting in Libya, al-Zawahiri, an Egyptian native, celebrates the overthrow of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and says that the continuation of the North African nation depends on the destruction of Israel and the establishment of Islamic law.

Though al-Zawahiri has released audio messages in recent months, it is the first video appearance one of the world's most wanted men has made in more than a year and half. The video also features a separate segment in which American-born radical Muslim cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, a key leader of al Qaeda's Yemen branch, shows his support for the revolutions while denouncing U.S. involvement in the Muslim world in general. It's unclear when that portion of the video was made, but it's the first time al-Zawahiri and al-Awlaki have been featured in the same production by as-Sahab, al Qaeda's media wing.


Don't have video, yet. The akhis at JihadTube are a bit shy at the moment.

UPDATE: Howie has the file, so if any one wants it email him.

I would download the file... but... corrupted files are for the akhis.

shhhhhh, it's a sekrit!

I really like As Shahab's gif at Ansar though:

Ain't it purdy?
