al-Qaeda's 9/11 Messages
There's been a lot of talk about an al-Qaeda tape featuring Zawahiri, Ghadan talking about the death of al-Liby and calling on Libyans to exact revenge for his death.
On September 11, 2012, Al-Qaeda's media wing, Al-Sahab, released a new video featuring the group's leader, Ayman Al-Zawahiri; U.S. born spokesman Adam Gadahn; slain commander Abu Yahya Al-Libi; official in charge of da'wa and media in Urdu Ustad Ahmad Farooq; and old footage of the late radical Yemeni-American cleric Anwar Al-Awlaki.Its important that folks know what al-Qaeda is saying. Even more important would holding the Zawahiri brothers responsible for this week's violence.
The two-part video, titled "Truth Has Come and Falsehood has Perished," is over an hour and half in duration, and is in three versions – Arabic, English, and Urdu. The video was first posted on the jihadi forum Shumoukh Al-Islam.
