In New Video, al Qaeda’s Zawahiri Weighs in on Egypt, Libya

In a recent online video, apparently recorded before the NATO intervention in Libya, al Qaeda’s Ayman al-Zawahiri celebrates the overthrow of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. Al-Zawahiri calls upon Muslims to fight both “the mercenaries of Qaddafi and the rest of NATO” should NATO intervene in Libya.

Notably, this is the first video from Zawahiri in more than a year and half, according to ABC News, and follows audio messages from him released earlier this year.
