Al-Qaida airs video of attack on alleged US post

A new video posted on an Islamic Web site commonly used by al-Qaida showed an insurgent attack against an alleged US post in eastern Afghanistan. Entitled "Holocaust of the Americans in the land of Khorasan," which is a militant name for Afghanistan, the tape appears to be the latest in a series of videos released by the terror network in support of claims that its fighters were faring well in the Afghan war. The 10-minute video, with an Arabic voice-over accompanied by chanting male voices in the background, shows a group of militants preparing for and staging an attack. It was posted on the Web site Saturday.
