Militant Web site: al-Qaida's No. 2 to release new statement soon

A militant Web site says that al-Qaida's No. 2, Ayman al-Zawahri, will release a new statement soon. The Web site, known for militant messaging, says al-Zawahri's statement will discuss the five year US presence in Iraq. It's not clear whether it would be an audio or video recording. The Web site says al-Zawahri's new release will be entitled, "Five years of the invasion of Iraq and decades of injustice by tyrants," and is expected "shortly." No details were provided. The Thursday announcement _ almost a month after the fifth anniversary of the US-led invasion of Iraq _ bore the logo of al-Qaida's media wing, al-Sahab. Al-Zawahri is considered al-Qaida's chief strategist and issues frequent video and audio recordings.
