Al-Qaida posted Friday a video showing what they claimed to be an insurgent attack on a military position of US and Afghan forces in southern Afghanistan. The video appears to be an attempt by the terrorist network to disparage US claims to be winning the war against the Taliban and allied militia in Afghanistan. It begins with the deputy leader of al-Qaida, Ayman al-Zawahri, ridiculing U.S. President George W. Bush and saying that his claim to have deprived al-Qaida of a safe haven in Afghanistan is a "bare-faced lie," according to a transcript by IntelCenter, a US group that tracks extremist messages.
