Pat Dollard,Rapid Pace: Second Al Qaeda Video In A Week Says Financial Crisis A Result Of 9-11, U.S. Must Become Islamic Nation To Overcome It

Al Qaeda’s No. 2 leader appeared in a new video Friday calling on Americans to embrace Islam to overcome the financial meltdown, which he described as a consequence of the Sept. 11 attacks.

Ayman al-Zawahiri, whose 80-minute recording touched on a multitude of subjects, also lashed out at Afghanistan’s government and said any U.S. gains in Iraq will be temporary.


Zawahiri’s new recording came in the form of a question-and-answer session with an off-camera interviewer, who interrupted Zawahiri several times.

Appearing in his white turban and robe, Zawahri discussed the roots of the U.S. economic crisis and said it was a repercussion of the Sept. 11 attacks in the United States.

“The American economy was afflicted by a downturn and loss of investor confidence in the market following the events of Sept. 11,” he said.
