Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri has released a video coinciding with the anniversary of the September 11 attacks, confirming for the first time the death of his deputy, US monitors said.
The 42-minute video is Zawahiri's first release in three months, and confirms that Abu Yahya al-Libi was killed in a drone strike in Pakistan's Waziristan tribal area on June 4, according to SITE and IntelCenter.
Zawahiri does single out US President Barack Obama for being a "liar" who was elected to "trick" Muslims around the world, but who nevertheless is "being defeated in Afghanistan".
He also mentions Warren Weinstein, an elderly US aid worker kidnapped in Pakistan by Al-Qaeda just over a year ago, vowing to keep him in captivity until US-led forces release Qaeda followers held in Afghanistan.

Uh, not really the first in three months. It comes after the 9.11 trimph video just up, which they still seem to have some problems delivering the second half of.
How can he make a video, that must be some Cave.
We already knew that.
Hey Mr. President, where’s Zawahiri? Why haven’t you taken him down yet? Never a word about him. Couldn’t be because he’s Shia, could it, hmmmmmmmmmm???
Oh yeah, Ayman al-Zawahiri. That reminds me. How come he’s not dead?
