Ayman al-Zawahiri has issued a video proclaiming his sadness for the loss of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. In the video he calls al-Zarqawi a hero, a martyr,
and goes on to say that vengeance will be had. In typical fashion he makes scathing remarks against President Bush, and rants that the President is
hiding behind his lies and the President is the true catastrophe that we in the West are facing. This is the second videotaped message this week, the
first being a rant to the people of Afghanistan.
Osama bin Laden's top lieutenant, Ayman al-Zawahiri, says in a videotape aired Friday that he grieves over the death of al Qaeda in Iraq leader Abu
Musab al-Zarqawi. The video was aired on the Arabic-language station Al-Jazeera. CNN could not independently confirm the authenticity of the tape. In
the tape, al-Zawahiri is wearing a black turban, a sign of mourning, and he speaks from in front of a red backdrop featuring a picture of a smiling
"May God rest his soul and allow him to reside in his vast heavens, and make his martyrdom a light for the allies of God and fire and destruction for
the enemies of God, the crusaders and their treacherous agents and the charlatans who deal in religion," al-Zawahiri says. "There isn't a single
person who'll be killed that we won't get vengeance for, God willing."
'Tell me why Muslims hate you'
"Tell me how your drunkard and runaway soldiers get killed; tell me how many of you were killed in reality and how much did your economy really lose
and how the morale of your soldiers is down. And not only that, but tell me why Muslims hate you so much, and also why you are hated so much by your
innocent victims all over the world," he says.

The second video in a week? This is high traffic! He makes some interesting points however about Bush. I wonder what he might know that we dont?
Would it not be interesting to have him on ATS for an hour and let him answer some questions? What would you ask?
