CAIRO, Egypt - Showing that the United States failed to kill him in a recent missile strike, Al-Qaida No. 2 Ayman al-Zawahri said in a videotape aired Monday that President Bush was a “butcher” and a “failure” because of the attack.
Al-Zawahri, shown in the video wearing white robes and a white turban, said the Jan. 13 missile strike in Pakistan killed “innocents,” and he said the United States had ignored an offer from al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden for a truce.
“Butcher of Washington, you are not only defeated and a liar, but also a failure. You are a curse on your own nation,” he said, referring to Bush. “Bush, do you know where I am? I am among the Muslim masses.”
The airstrike hit a building in the eastern Pakistan village of Damadola, killing four al-Qaida leaders. Thirteen villagers also were killed in the strike, angering many Pakistanis.
The video was Zawahri’s first appearance since the strike.
“My second message is to the American people, who are drowning in illusions. I tell you that Bush and his gang are shedding your blood and wasting your money in frustrated adventures,” he said, speaking in a forceful and angry voice.
“The lion of Islam, Sheik Osama bin Laden, may God protect him, offered you a decent exit from your dilemma," he said. "But your leaders, who are keen to accumulate wealth, insist on throwing you in battles and killing your souls in Iraq and Afghanistan and — God willing — on your own land.”
The video came in the wake of a Jan. 19 audiotape by bin Laden in which he warned that al-Qaida is preparing attacks in the United States but offered a truce “with fair conditions” to build Iraq and Afghanistan.
That tape — aired on Al-Jazeera — was the first message from bin Laden in more than a year.
Now I'm not in support of Al-Qaida, BUT man does he make some great points about Bush. And if inshAllah it wont happen, we get another hit in USA than Bush is the ONLY man to blame for this cramp going on and on.......
What are some thoughts?

Well, I agree with that part. LoL
I really think this guy is made up though...
Have read up on some of the papers of us think tanks and I am w/o a doubt convinced that alot of what we see in the Ummah is the result of their works. The publicity given to glbt muslims, reformists, feminists, etc. the slanders of acredit ulemah, the growing shia/sunni conflict, the "extremism" [I don't care for this word. I really me the distortionists because they have really taken Islam far from its true meaning],...among other things.
If I have time I'll look for the report. It is available online at the Rand Corp's website.
It is interesting to see the connections between Rand Corp and the Progressive Muslim Union and MuslimWakeUp.com
