Al-Jazeera is currently broadcasting an audio tape reportedly of Ayman Al-Zawahiri, to quell rumors that he is either dead or captured. The tape has not yet been translated. The CIA has not confirmed if the voice is that of Al-Zawahiri or not either. The release of a new tape from either Bin Laden or Al-Zawahiri has been expected by many sources in Intelligence community.

Al-Qaida's number-two urged all Muslims in the Asian country to reject Islamabad's cooperation with US forces and throw out the unelected military dictatorship of President Pervez Musharraf.

He also urged the Pakistani military to "disobey orders. I call on Muslims in Pakistan to get rid of their government which is working for Americans."

The seven minute broadcast on Thursday made no reference to the Madrid train bombings on 11 March but did mention the Pakistani offensive against tribal Taliban sympathizers in South Waziristan that began earlier in the month.

I personally don't believe this is a new tape. I think this is an old tape brought up to try to convince us that Al-Zawahiri isn't dead or captured.

CIA is stating that the voice on the tape is "likely that of Al-Zawahiri and likely authentic".

I hope you realise that if President Musharraf is assassinated then a radical Islamic leader and government would most probably take over that support terrorism. This would be a worst case scenario as it would be an anti - west government that supports terrorist groups AND HAS NUCLEAR WEAPONS.

I think Eddie just summed up the worse case scenario we face today.

Iran is working on nukes but you are right Pakistan under a radical mulsim leadership would most likely welcome Osama and his croonies into the capital during a parade. Instead of the key to the city they would give him his very own bomb, along with a missle to deliver it. BTW, I know that pakistan can reach India, would their missles also reach Iraq, Israel or god forib and ICBM that could reach here or Europe?
