Ask Al Qaeda Anything!

Zawahiri2006All I can do is smirk at this. Clever. Will it succeed? Better than when we do it. From Noah:

Like me, I'm sure you're filled with questions for Al Qaeda deputy dog Ayman al-Zahwahiri: Why are you so pissed off?  What's your next diabolical plot?  Where can a Predator deliver a little present to you right now?  And what's up with that big ol' splotch on your forehead?

Well, now here's your chance to ask 'em all.  The public, "have been asked to send in their questions for the terror network's second in command, which he will then answer in an online interview next month," Australia's informs us.

The bizarre stunt was announced in a new video posted on the internet in which al-Qaeda's number two, Ayman al-Zawahri, mocked yeterday's British handover of security in southern Iraq to local forces as a sign that insurgents are gaining the upper hand.

The video, carried by Islamic websites, was issued as Britain handed over security to Iraqi forces in the last of four provinces it once patrolled, effectively marking the end of nearly five years of British control of southern Iraq.
The websites invited readers to send in questions during the next month for Zawahri to answer in an "open interview".  How the interview would work was not immediately clear.

It's like the jihadist equivalent of the YouTube debates! Here's the transcript, courtesy of IntelCenter:

As-Sahab Foundation for Islamic Media, in coordination with Al-Fajr Center, is pleased to announce the organizing of an open meeting with Shaykh Ayman al-Zawahiri, in which he will reply to questions directed to him by individuals, organizations and all information media outlets. Anyone wishing to direct a question to him should send it to one of the sites which will be specified for collection of questions during a period of one month commencing from the release of this announcement. Please try to keep the question brief and focused.
