On 9/11, al Qaeda leader calls for attacks on U.S. and slams jihad "backtrackers"
CBS News ^ | September 11, 2019

Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahri has called on Muslims to attack U.S., European, Israeli and Russian targets in a speech on the 18th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks.

SITE Intelligence Group reports that in a video released by the militant group, Zawahri also criticizes "backtrackers" from jihad, referring to former jihadis who changed their views in prison and called the 9/11 attacks unacceptable because innocent civilians were harmed.

Zawahri, an Egyptian, became leader of al Qaeda following the 2011 killing of Osama bin Laden in Abbottabad, Pakistan by U.S. Navy SEALS. He is believed to be hiding somewhere in the region.

The new video was released as President Trump unleashed threats against militants contemplating another attack on America.

"If anyone dares to strike our land, we will respond with the full measure of American power and the iron will of the American spirit and that spirit is unbreakable," Trump said at the Pentagon.

You can’t have a meaningful war on a tactic, which is what terrorism is.
The ideology driving it was Islam.
We have even acknowledged the real threat.

Ayman al-Zawahiri

This guy is 68.

He looks 88. Life in hiding makes you age poorly.

Can you imagine the stress this guy is under?

Every night he goes to bed he could be awakened up by a Navy Seal who is going to give him a double tap.

He can’t talk to more than 5 people. Any new person is a threat to sell him for 50 million dollars.

He should have been dead 18 years ago.

Playing nice with muslims only gets more people killed.

9/11 should have been dealt with like America dealt with Nazis and Japanese Imperialists. Even on here it’s not PC to say that Islam should have been destroyed completely just like the Nazis and Imperialists. Islam is not compatible with Western Civilization. I know there are good Muslims but there is basically no “moderate” Muslim as we see with these POS congress losers.

Remembering Freepers “BKO” (Barbara Olson, conservative author) & “BCM” (John Moran, Battalion Chief NYFD) lost to us in the 9/11 attacks eighteen years ago.

I agree. Not only is she in Congress, she has several cohorts there also. Plus the ones that are being brought up from the Southern Border and elsewhere.

We fought the war on poverty and lost.

We fought the war on drugs and lost.
We fought the war on terror and are losing.

Zawahiri...who I think was originally an eye doctor- has an interest in bioterrorism:

... Zawahiri, who appears to have decided to explore other options for obtaining bacteria and lab equipment...
