New Al-Qaida Leader Urges Attacks On U.S.

WASHINGTON, Aug. 15 (UPI) — Al-Qaida’s new leader is urging followers to keep targeting the United States.

A video by Ayman al-Zawahiri surfaced Monday on a Web site that often posts al-Qaida videos, ABC News reported.

“America today is staggering,” said Zawahiri. “Hunt her down wherever you may encounter her. Hunt her down to cut what is left of her corruption’s tail.”

In the 12-minute video, Zawahiri, who took over al-Qaida after Osama bin Laden was killed by U.S. forces in Pakistan in May, calls for “Muslim brothers everywhere” to seek vengeance against the United States.

“Pursue America, which killed the ‘Imam of the Mujahedeen’ and threw his body into the sea, and then captured his women and sons,” Zawahiri said. “Hunt her down until history says that a murderous country spread corruption in the earth so God sent his faithful to her to make an example out of her.”

It is not clear as to when the video was made, though references to bin Laden’s death means it was made relatively recently.

U.S. officials had yet to comment on the video, but have warned new attacks targeting the United States are probable near the Sept. 11 anniversary of the 2001 terror attacks, particularly in the wake of bin Laden’s death.
