Al Qaeda 2nd in Command Zawahiri Brags About London Attacks

Dressed in a black turban once again, but this time in front of a white backdrop, Al Qaeda second in command Dr. Ayman Zawahiri bragged to the world that "The London attack is one of the many such attacks that al Qaeda has the honor of carrying out against the British arrogance, the aggression of the crusader British against the Muslim nation for over a hundred years".

The statement, aired on Al Jazeera this afternoon, was the second such tape from Zawahiri in less than a month.

Al Jazeera claimed that the tape was produced by Sahab Enterprises, the media production arm of Al Qaeda, which has produced many other videos in recent years.

The video included subtitles in English. Al Jazeera claims that they were informed the tape was made to commemorate the fourth anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks on New York and Washington.

A more detailed analysis and complete translation will be provided shortly.

The tape can be viewed in its entirety here.
