Another OBL Tape— This One Will Explain Why NY & DC Were Attacked
In the third Al Qaeda tape release this week, the terror group will be “Presenting reasons and motives for the attacks on New York and Washington.”
Al Qaeda is coming out with another tape to explain its role (again) in the 9-11 attacks.
WASHINGTON – Al-Qaeda will release a third video marking the sixth anniversary of the September 11 attacks, this time showing its top leader in Afghanistan, US monitoring groups said Wednesday.
After releasing two videos featuring Al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden in recent days, the terror network will now show a video “presenting reasons and motives for the attacks on New York and Washington,” the SITE Intelligence Group said in a press release.
The new video will show Al-Qaeda’s chief in Afghanistan, Mustafa Abu Al-Yazid, also known as Sheikh Said, said SITE, which monitors extremist websites.
The tape also features a montage of images showing the burning World Trade Center towers in New York and individuals such as Saudi King Abdullah, SITE said.
Another US-based monitoring group, IntelCenter, said it expected the video to be released by Al-Qaeda within 72 hours.
IntelCenter said the new video’s upcoming release was announced by Al-Qaeda’s media arm, As-Sahab.
More… Disgruntled Richard Clarke, The Bush Administration’s former chief counter-terrorism adviser, claimed today that OBL is either in Somalia or Yemen and not Pakistan.
UPDATE: Dr. Rusty Shackleford has more on this latest release.
