Purported Al Qaeda Tape Urges Attacks

Friday, October 01, 2004

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — An audio tape purportedly released by Usama bin Laden's (search) deputy calls for attacks on U.S. and British forces everywhere, according to a broadcast Friday by Al-Jazeera television.

The Arab station said the speaker on the tape was Ayman al-Zawahri (search), but it was not immediately possible to verify the authenticity of the recording.

The speaker calls on Muslims "not to wait any longer, otherwise, we will be devoured, one country after the other," according to Al-Jazeera.

The U.S. government has offered up to $25 million for information leading to the killing or capture of al-Zawahri, the Al Qaeda (search) network's No. 2 official.

The last video purportedly from al-Zawahri surfaced last month just prior to the third anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. In it, a bearded al-Zawahri proclaimed the United States will be defeated in Iraq and Afghanistan.

This would be a response to the Pakistani's whooping some very serious Al Q ass in recent days. Lots of arrests and they shot and killed one of the beasts who helped behead Daniel Pearle.

Its also a effort to refute rumors that Al Zawahiri was one of those recently nabbed.

CNN also said this morning that the tape said...

"if we (OBL and AAZ) are captured or killed continue the fight..."
