Ask a Terrorist! Al-Qaida invites questions on its internet forums
Al-Qaida has invited journalists to send questions to its No. 2 figure Ayman al-Zawahri, the first time the terror network has offered an "interview" with one of its top leaders since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks in the United States.
The invitation - issued by Al-Sahab, the group's media arm on an Islamic militant Web site - is the latest in al-Qaida's increasingly sophisticated efforts to get out its message. Al-Sahab has dramatically increased the number of messages it has issued this year, and its videos have shown more complex production.
The statement, first posted Sunday, invites "individuals, agencies and all media" to submit written questions for al-Zawahri by sending them to the Islamic Web forums where Al-Sahab traditionally posts its messages. Al-Sahab asked the forums to send it the questions "by the letter, with no changes or substitutions, no matter whether they agree or disagree (with the question)."
It said it would take questions until Jan. 16, then al-Zawahri would answer them "as much as he is able and at the soonest possible occasion." It did not say whether his answers would come in a written, video or audio form.
The authenticity of the invitation could not be independently confirmed. It was posted with the logo of Al-Sahab and the style of graphics and calligraphy it traditionally uses, along with a photo of al-Zawahri. The message appeared on several Web sites that Al-Sahab officially uses for issuing statements.
Al-Zawahri, the deputy of Osama bin Laden, appeared in a video posted Monday that took the form of an interview with Al-Sahab. An unseen interviewer could be heard asking questions to the Egyptian-born militant, who answered, sitting in front of shelves stacked with books of Islamic law and theology.
Al-Zawahri and bin Laden gave a few interviews to Western and Arabic press since they first rose to prominence in the 1990s. Neither has been interviewed since the Sept. 11 attacks and the subsequent U.S. invasion of Afghanistan, which toppled al-Qaida's patrons the Taliban and sent al-Qaida's leaders into hiding. Bin Laden and al-Zawahri are believed to be in the lawless regions along the Pakistan-Afghanistan border.

Dear Mr. Al-Zawahri:
How have you been? I hope this letter finds you and your friend Osama well. I know you haven't seen much sunlight since we
achieved air superiority over Afghanistan, but really, you could use a tanning bed to sort of perk up your appearance. I know the western media would like to portray you as feeling much better than you look.
Well, enough small talk Ayman. Now for my question:
WTF, over? Do you like being ass raped by the United States military? Is that cave cozy and warm this time of year? Can Santa find you.....oh never mind, wrong religion. Is the goat tender and moist? How about those shepperd boys....kinda cute, huh?
Well, that was all I wanted to know. Please let me know about the ass raping because I know some people and I am sure I can get you done again soon.
Your friend in the states....Car 4I would like my country back. I used to believe that one man could never destroy this country. Not so sure anymore!

I'd ask him "Who do you support in the next Presidential election?" (Anyone have an idea of what the answer may be?)For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.
