Report: New Zawahiri Tape Released

The 18-minute tape, whose authenticity could not immediately be confirmed, gave no indication of when the recording was made....

In the style of classical Arabic poetry, the speaker praises "the martyrs of the Crusader campaign against Afghanistan".

Update: CBS News: The tape made no mention of a Jan. 13 U.S. airstrike in Pakistan that was targeting al-Zawahiri and killed four al Qaeda leaders.

First Bin Laden and now Zawahiri releasing statements. Yes, something is up. But I think that those who say this shows Al-Qaeda's, and Bin Laden's, weakness are making a mistake. Rather, it is very likely that this signals an attack.

Well, he get one thing partially right - At least while I was there, we sure did make a lot of "martyrs" of those AQ and Talib jack-asses...
