It's almost becoming a ritual now, but every year I think, around about now, Al Qaeda release some sort of video taunting America and the West generally. This year is no different it seems. The Blotter is reporting that a video has been released in which the Al Qaeda number two, Ayman al Zawahri, gives a message directly to the US Democrats. Zawahri says,
"[The Democrats] aren't the ones who won the midterm elections, nor are the Republicans the ones who lost. Rather, the Mujahideen -- the Muslim Ummah's vanguard in Afghanistan and Iraq -- are the ones who won, and the American forces and their Crusader allies are the ones who lost"Ayman al Zawahri goes on to say the Democrats should negotiate with bin Laden and not anyone else in the Islamic world.
