When Was Zawahiri Audio Tape Made?

One key question I have regarding the latest Zawahiri audio tape – his first ever in English – is when was it made and is it authentic. It is clear Pakistan is in a fight for its soul, and there are forces inside the Pakistan Government which want to destabilize the democratic government and replace […]

Zawahiri Update – Speculation Alert

Taliban Infighting Shows Sign Of Pakistan Awakening And Problems For Islamo Fascists

In Iraq the turning point came when Sunni Muslims, fed up and repulsed by their people being massacred by the Islamo Fascists of al-Qaeda, literally turned on their one-time al-Qaeda allies and began to purge their country of this cancer. President Bush and General Petraeus intelligently took advantage of this sea change in allegiance and […]
