A new video tape from Ayman al-Zawahiri has just been aired on al-Jazeera. According to preliminary reports, Zawahiri addresses President Bush
personally regarding the CIA strike targeting him in Pakistan.
CAIRO, Egypt — Al Qaeda No. 2 Ayman al-Zawahiri said in a videotape aired Monday that President Bush was a "butcher" and a "failure" because of
a deadly U.S. airstrike targeting the bin Laden deputy.
Al-Zawahiri, shown in the video wearing white robes and a white turban, said the Jan. 13 airstrike killed "innocents," and he said the United States
had ignored an offer from Al Qaeda leader Usama 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." Please visit the link provided for the complete story.
Details on this are still sketchy, as this has just been aired by al Jazeera, but it's at least clear that he did survive the attack.
