Al-Qaida predicts Obama's fall by Muslim nation
By PAUL SCHEMM and HADEEL AL-SHALCHI (Associated Press Writers)
From Associated Press

CAIRO - Al-Qaida on Tuesday released a new 106-minute long video predicting President Barack Obama's downfall at the hands of the Muslim world.

The Arabic-language video, entitled "The West and the Dark Tunnel," is part of series of messages by the organization marking the eighth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. Bin Laden released a short message of his own on Sept. 14.

Like similar long messages on previous anniversaries, it featured testimony from several leading al-Qaida figures intercut with news footage from the past year.

As in the past, al-Qaida attempted to conflate Obama with his predecessor, George W. Bush, who was widely disliked by Muslims for his invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq.

Many analysts believe that al-Qaida has been alarmed by Obama's comparative popularity in the Middle East, especially following his landmark speech to the Muslim world in Cairo in June.

"America has come in a new, hypocritical face. Smiling at us, but stabbing us with the same dagger that Bush used," said Al-Qaida No. 2 Ayman al-Zawahri in the message.

:popcorn:

This is bullshit! Everyone knows that the US will fall to Eurasia... :crazy:

Say? I thought Ayman al-Zawahri was already killed 3 or 4 times already. How many lives does he have?

4. If we stay in Afghanistan, that is not impossible.
I assume that's how they're figuring this?
