In a new video heard early Tuesday, al-Qaida's No. 2 Ayman al-Zawahri mocked President George W. Bush as a "failure" in the war on terror, called him a "butcher" for killing innocent Pakistanis in a miscarried airstrike and chastised the United States for rejecting Osama bin Laden's offer of a truce. Al-Zawahri, wearing white robes and a white turban and speaking in a forceful and angry voice, also threatened a new attack in the United States - "God willing, on your own land." The video, broadcast on Al-Jazeera TV on Monday, a day before Bush was scheduled to deliver his State of the Union address, provided the first concrete evidence that al-Zawahri was still alive after the Jan. 13 airstrike in eastern Pakistan that targeted him but killed four other al-Qaida leaders and 13 villagers.
