Al-Zawahiri Releases New Tape With Threats
Al-Qaeda top deputy Ayman al-Zawahiri released a new tape with new threats of attacks. He called Bush the "butcher of Washington."
Al-Zawahiri, shown in the video wearing white robes and a white turban, said a Jan. 13 airstrike in the eastern village of Damadola killed "innocents," and he said the United States had ignored an offer from al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden for a truce.
Bush undoubtedly will use this tape and Osama's tape of a few weeks ago to remind us during SOTU that we must win the war on terror. He probably won't remind us that his war on terror and curtailing of our civil liberties did not produce either one of these two top terrorists despite the passage of more than four years since Sept. 11.
