Al-Qaida's deputy leader Ayman al-Zawahri released an audio message Monday in which he vowed that American troops would leave both Afghanistan and Iraq in "defeat."

Al-Zawahri praised Taliban and al-Qaida-linked groups, saying they are "moving from one victory to another" in Afghanistan and Iraq. The Taliban will "enter Kabul in triumph and Obama will leave it in fear," he said in the hourlong message, his first since May.

"Oh Obama, whether you admit it or not, Muslims have defeated you in Afghanistan and in Iraq and you will be defeated in Palestine, Somalia and the Arab Maghreb," he said, referring to Islamic countries in northern Africa. "You will not only be defeated militarily and economically but most important you will be defeated morally."
