American Al Qaeda Leader Says U.S. Embassies a Prime Target

(The Blotter) American al Qaeda leader Adam Gadahn says al Qaeda will continue to target the United States at home and overseas, singling out U.S. embassies as a target, in a new Internet video released by as Sahab, the propaganda wing of al Qaeda. The video, which runs more than an hour long, also features previously seen video of Osama bin Laden and Ayman al Zawahri as well as an interview with a man said to be the suicide bomber who attacked the U.S. Consulate in Karachi, Pakistan, last year, according to a preliminary analysis of the video. “We shall continue to target you at home and abroad, just as you target us at home and abroad, and these spy dens and military command and control centers from which you plotted your aggression against Afghanistan and Iraq, and which still provide vital moral, military, material and logistical support to the Crusade, shall continue to be legitimate targets for brave Muslims,” says Gadahn, who hails from Orange County, Calif. “Stop the Crusade,and leave the Muslims alone.” As the Blotter on ABCNews.com reported last week, this highly anticipated video was advertised for days on extreme Islamist Web sites with the headline “Wait for the Big Surprise.” The video features a graphic re-enactment of last year’s attack in Karachi, which killed four people, including an American diplomat, as well as aftermath video of the 1998 attacks on the American embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. “As for our message to the Americans and their Crusader allies,” said Gadahn, “it is this: The amount of respect we have for your international law is even less than the respect you hold for defined Shariah, and our observance of it is comparable to your observance of Shariah’s. How can we comply with a law which contradicts divine law in whole and in part? How can we recognize a law which states that the embassy or consulate is for all intents and purposes an inviolable fortress which the host country has no right to enter or monitor and when our Shariah’s commands us to liberate every handspan of Islamic land occupied by the unbelievers?”  More details on the video will be released shortly.
