Al-Zawahiri is back from the dead again, giving interviews!
By Lori Price 28 Nov 2008

Zawahiri blames global financial crisis on 9/11 in latest al-Qaeda video 28 Nov 2008 Al-Qaeda's second-in-command, Ayman al-Zawahiri, has said in a new internet video that the international financial crisis is the result of a US war on Muslims and the Sept 11 attacks. Zawahiri also claimed the recent security gains made by US forces in Iraq were only temporary and Afghan President Hamid Karzai's offers to negotiate with Taliban elements were a sign of his regime's weakness.

Qaeda's Zawahri says U.S. wars behind financial crisis 28 Nov 2008 Al Qaeda's second-in-command said in an Internet video the U.S. financial crisis was caused by Washington's military campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan and taxpayers were paying the price. "This crisis is one of ... the series of American economic hemorrhages after the strikes of September 11... And these ... will continue as long as the foolish American policy of wading in Muslim blood continues," Ayman al-Zawahri said on the video, posted on Islamist websites on Friday.

Re-killed Ayman al-Zawahiri is back in 'audio message,' taunting Obama By Lori Price 19 Nov 2008

The elusive, whack-a-mole al-Qaeda #2 is back again (from the dead)! Ayman al-Zawahiri criticized U.S. President-elect Barack Obama in an 'audio message' posted on the Internet, calling him dishonorable and a servant of whites, the Associated Press reported. The second-in-command of Islamic militant network al-Qaeda [al-CIAduh] has called on Muslims to harm "criminal" America. You just can't keep a good terrorist down (or dead) for long, especially when Bush needs a terror attack/martial law before January 20.

Al-Qaeda Second-in-Command Criticizes Obama in Message, AP Says 19 Nov 2008 Al-Qaeda's second-in-command, Ayman al-Zawahiri, criticized U.S. President-elect Barack Obama in an audio message posted on the Internet, calling him dishonorable and a servant of whites, the Associated Press reported. Al-Zawahiri said Obama is "the direct opposite of honorable black Americans" such as Malcolm X, AP said. He also uses a derogatory racial term to imply Obama is a black American who does the bidding of whites, AP says. The recording, if its authenticity is confirmed, will be the first comment issued by al-Qaeda [al-CIAduh] on the Democratic Party's election victory.

Al-Qaida No. 2 insults Obama with racial epithet 19 Nov 2008 Al-Qaida's No. 2 leader used a racial epithet to insult Barack Obama in a message posted Wednesday, using a demeaning racial term implying that the president-elect is a black American who does the bidding of whites. Ayman al-Zawahri said in the message, which appeared on militant Web sites, that Obama is "the direct opposite of honorable black Americans" like Malcolm X, the 1960s African-American rights leader. In al-Qaida's first response to Obama's victory, al-Zawahri also called the president-elect -- along with secretaries of state Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice -- "house negroes." Speaking in Arabic, al-Zawahri uses the term "abeed al-beit," which literally translates as "house slaves." But al-Qaida supplied English subtitles of his speech [LOL!] that included the translation as "house negroes."

Al-Qaeda message condemns Obama 19 Nov 2008 The second-in-command of Islamic militant network al-Qaeda [al-CIAduh] has called on Muslims to harm "criminal" America. In a message purportedly from Ayman al-Zawahiri, the al-Qaeda deputy accused US President-elect Barack Obama of betraying his Muslim roots. He likened him to a "house slave" - who had chosen to align himself with the "enemies" of Islam.

The elusive, whack-a-mole al-Qaeda #2 is 'visiting' a main operating base for al-Qaeda and the Taliban in Pakistan. You just can't keep a good terrorist down (or dead) for long, especially during the run-up to a US 'election!'

Taliban show no let up despite 8,000 soldiers in FATA 28 Sep 2008 Taliban hostilities show no sign of abating despite the deployment of 8,000 troops in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas and the army’s claim of killing 1,000 Taliban, according to The Times. The newspaper said in a report on Saturday that a constant supply of fresh fighters from inside the country and across the border in Afghanistan is helping the Taliban to stay in the fight. Bajaur Agency is a main operating base for Al Qaeda [al-CIAduh] and the Taliban. Pakistani intelligence believes that Ayman al-Zawahri, the second-in-command of Al Qaeda, has been a visitor.


Al-Qaeda No. 2 May be Injured, Possibly Re-killed--But Still Cranking Out Videotapes By Lori Price 08 Sep 2008

Al-Qaeda No. 2, Ayman al-Zawahri, was 'killed,' then wounded, then re-killed--but through all of his deaths and injuries, he is still able to produce videotapes. Whenever the GOP hits a bump in the road -- say, for example, the imminent implosion of Caribou Barbie -- al-Zawahri is reborn and healed and a busy little bee!

Al-Qaida accuses Iran of co-operating with U.S. 08 Sep 2008 Al-Qaida [al-CIAduh] marked the anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks with a 90-minute video message Monday summarizing the state of jihad, or holy war, around the world and slamming Iran for collaborating with the United States. Short excerpts of the message were aired on the Arab satellite news channel Al-Jazeera. In them, al-Qaida Number 2, Ayman al-Zawahri, accused Iran of working with U.S. forces. Al-Zawahri said Tehran was "co-operating with the Americans in occupying Iraq and Afghanistan" and slammed Iran for recognizing the two governments. He also criticized the Shiites for not calling for a jihad in Iraq against the "Crusader occupier." In militant postings, "crusaders" is shorthand for U.S. troops in Iraq.

Timeline-Messages attributed to al Qaeda's Zawahri 08 Sep 2008 'Al Qaeda' has issued a video marking the September 11 attacks, in which deputy group leader Ayman al-Zawahri accuses Iran of taking part in a Western "Crusader" war against Islam, Al Jazeera television said on Monday.

Dead, now wounded or re-killed!

Four days after the CIA re-killed Abu Khabab al-Masri (aka Midhat Mursi) who 'died' in January 2006, CBS News 'exclusively reports' that al-Qaeda #2 (tons of those, btw) Ayman al-Zawahiri was injured and 'believed to be somewhere in Pakistan's remote tribal areas' (so he can be re-killed during a 'bad news' week for the Bush administration). Al-Zawarhiri has a US$25 million reward on his head. ROFL! Someone is making more money on these bounties than Exxon Mobil makes in an hour!

Exclusive: Al Qaeda No. 2 Injured? Unverified Letter Obtained By CBS News Urgently Requests Doctor to Treat Ayman al-Zawahiri 01 Aug 2008 Ayman al-Zawahiri - the second most powerful leader in al Qaeda [al-CIAduh] and Osama Bin Laden's No. 2 - may be critically wounded and possibly dead, CBS News reports exclusively.

The letter refers to Sheikh Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri by name - and says that he is in "severe pain" and his "injuries are infected." It is reportedly written by local Taliban leader, Baitullah Mehsud, whose signature and seal are visible on the letter. The Taliban logo and the Mehsud's seal have been confirmed by experts as legitimate.

Al-Qaeda number two al-Zawahiri reported injured by US missile --Al-Qa'eda's deputy leader has been wounded and may even have died after a US missile strike in a tribal area along Pakistan's border with Afghanistan, according to a report. 02 Aug 2008 US broadcaster CBS said it had obtained an intercepted letter from a Pakistani Taliban commander requesting urgent medical help for Ayman al-Zawahiri, Osama bin Laden's right-hand man. Pakistan's military said it had no information about the report. Chief Pakistani military spokesman Major General Athar Abbas said: "There is no evidence or information in this regard. We have no reliable information." Al-Zawahiri has been mistakenly reported killed before in the remote and hostile area where he is believed to be hiding along with other surviving al-Qaeda leaders.

But, looky here!

Musharraf confirms 'al-Qaeda' hit 11 Feb 2006 Pakistan's president has confirmed that "a close relative" of al-Qaeda number two Ayman al-Zawahiri was killed in a US air strike in Pakistan last month. Pervez Musharraf also confirmed for the first time that Zawahiri had been expected to be at the house targeted by the US, a military spokesman says.

"Five foreigners were killed in the US attack," Gen Musharraf told tribal leaders in north-western Pakistan, the Associated Press news agency reports. "One of them was a close relative of Ayman al-Zawahri and the other man was wanted by the US and had a US$5 million (4.19 million euro) reward on his head." Shortly after the raid, unconfirmed intelligence reports said three high-ranking al-Qaeda members were among those killed in the raid on a village in the Bajaur Agency region on the border with Afghanistan. They named Egyptian bomb expert Midhat Mursi - information on whose whereabouts carries a $5m US bounty. Border village When news of the attack first emerged, there were reports that Ayman al-Zawahiri had been killed. He has eluded capture since the US overthrew the Taleban in Afghanistan in 2001 - despite a $25m bounty on his head. Osama Bin Laden's second-in-command is regarded as the ideological brains behind the al-Qaeda network. The raid took place in the village of Damadola in the Bajaur tribal area, about 7km (4.5 miles) from the Afghan border.
