Al Qaeda's No. 2 man says in a videotape aired today that President Bush is a "butcher" and a "loser." It is the first glimpse of Ayman Al-Zawahiri, the top aide to Osama bin Laden, since a U.S. missile strike targeted him two weeks ago in Pakistan. Al-Zawahiri also says the United States had ignored an offer from bin Laden for a truce.

Aljazeera has aired a new video in which al-Qaida's deputy leader Ayman al-Zawahiri calls George Bush a butcher and threatens a new attack in the US.
Monday's video was his first appearance since a US air strike that targeted him on 13 January in Pakistan.
Al-Zawahiri said he had survived the raid which he said killed "innocents".
The air strike hit a building in the eastern Pakistan village of Damadola, reportedly killing four al-Qaida leaders.
Thirteen villagers were also killed in the strike, angering many Pakistanis.
In seeking to kill my humble self and four of my brothers, the whole world has discovered the extent of America's lies and failures and the extent of its savagery in fighting Islam and Muslims."
