Al Qaeda Releases New Video Lauding 9/11 Attacks

AFP/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- Al Qaeda's latest message came too late to upstage America's commemoration of the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

Still, the newest video posted on radical Islamic websites from new leader Ayman al-Zawahiri offered a stark reminder that the terrorist group is still bent on wreaking more havoc in the U.S. a decade after 19 hijackers disrupted the American way of life.

The monitoring group SITE Intelligence said Tuesday that the video entitled "The Dawn of Imminent Victory" features remarks by al-Zawahiri about this year's revolutions in Arab nations and the death of his predecessor, Osama bin Laden, while praising the attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people on Sept. 11, 2001.

It also features footage of bin Laden, which is from the same videos seized by Navy SEALS in Pakistan after they killed the al Qaeda chief last May.

Al-Zawahiri has also been targeted for assassination by the U.S. and remains in hiding.
