Jill Carroll, the kidnapped US journalist held in Iraq, has appeared in a new video, wearing a veil, weeping and appealing for the release of women Iraqi prisoners.

The video, aired by Aljazeera on Monday, has been widely aired in the United States, with most television stations broadcasting only a few seconds of it, calling it too disturbing. And in a new video also released Monday, al-Qaida's Ayman al-Zawahri has mocked President Bush as a "failure" and threatened a new attack in the United States.

The two propaganda videos come ahead of a State of the Union address by President George Bush is due to make later today --under pressure on domestic and foreign policy issues.

In a deeply ironic comment, Mark Ensalaco, an international terrorism expert said the tape's release may have been timed to come before Bush's State of Union address. "Al-Qaida is very conscious of such things," he said.

"Having bin Laden and al-Zawahri appear in quick succession in these tapes underscores the fact that they're alive and well and still plotting attacks," he said.

Al-Qaida, my ass! This is a double-whammy by Black Ops.

These sick bast**ds are putting Jill Carroll through a living hell for bush's political benefit.

The PsyOps objectives of the Osama, al-Zawahri, and Jill Carroll Videos:

Well the downside is that it reflects some on the Commander
in Chief but this is offset by the big PsyOp gains:

Al-Zawahri & Osama videos:

1. PsyOps Impression that the world is a dangerous place.
2. PsyOps Impression that the U.S. is still under threat.
3. PsyOps Impression that only alternative to war is a "terrorist" victory.

Jill Carroll video:

1. PsyOps Impression that the "enemy" is a despicable abuser of women.
2. PsyOps Impression that the "enemy" victimizes the innocent.
3. PsyOps Impression the world is a dangerous place.
4. PsyOps Impression that defeat means a burka for U.S. women.
5. PsyOps Impression that you can't negociate a just peace with Iraq resistance, just as you can't negociate a deal with kidnappers in non-military context.

US journalist in fresh video appeal
Tuesday 31 January 2006, 6:56 Makka Time, 3:56 GMT

Jill Carroll, the kidnapped US journalist held in Iraq, has appeared in a new video, weeping and appealing for the release of women Iraqi prisoners.

The video, aired by Aljazeera on Monday, showed Carroll wearing a veil but carried no sound.

Aljazeera said the 28-year-old journalist appealed for the release of women Iraqi prisoners.

The footage had a time signature with the date 28 January.

Aljazeera's newscaster said in the video Carroll appealed to the US military and the Iraqi Interior Ministry to release all women in their prisons and that this "would help in winning her release".

Armed men abducted Jill Carroll, a freelance reporter for the Christian Science Monitor, on 7 January in Baghdad and threatened to kill her unless all Iraqi women prisoners were released.

Her translator was shot to death dead during the kidnapping.

The latest video of Carroll was widely reported in the United States, but most television stations refused to broadcast more than a few seconds of it, calling it too disturbing.

The Christian Science Monitor expressed deep concern on
Monday over her fate.

Editor Richard Bergenheim said: "Anyone with a heart will feel distressed that an innocent woman like Jill Carroll would be treated in the manner shown in the latest video."

Detainees freed

The US military said on Thursday it would release five Iraqi women detainees. A US official said the release had nothing to do with the kidnappers' demand.

Her appearance contrasted with a previous video released on 17 January, which showed Carroll, 28, wearing a grey sweatshirt with her long brown hair loose.

It was the first news of the journalist since the tape broadcast on 17 January, which threatened to kill her if prisoners in Iraq were not released.

The corner of the screen was marked with the caption Brigades of Vengeance, the name of the group said to have issued the 17 January tape and claimed her kidnapping.

She was pictured against a coloured background which appeared to be a carpet.

More than 400 Iraqi detainees including five women were released last week. But another four women are still held in US-administered prisons.

The freelance journalist, was abducted by armed men on 7 January in Baghdad who shot and killed dead interpreter. She had visited the office of a prominent Sunni political figure, Adnan al-Dulaimi, whom she had asked to interview.

<b>Impassioned pleas</b>

Carroll set out to learn Arabic and cover the Iraq conflict in 2002, moving to Jordan. In 2003, she arrived in Baghdad and later began writing regularly for the Boston-based newspaper The Christian Science Monitor.

Her parents, US officials, and Dulaimi himself have all made impassioned calls for her release.

The new tape comes amid a new spike in hostage taking in Iraq, with anti-US and anti-government fighters releasing tapes of several foreign captives over the past days.

A group holding four Western peace activists, captive in Iraq
since November, last week issued a new video of their captives, saying it was giving a "last chance" for its demands to be met,

Two German engineers seized in northern Iraq appealed on Friday to Germany to save their lives.

Earlier this month, two Kenyan telecommunications engineers were kidnapped in Baghdad, but no information had been released on their status or whereabouts.

Al-Zawahri threatens new U.S. attacks

Updated Tue. Jan. 31 2006 6:35 AM ET Associated Press



CAIRO, Egypt — In a new video aired Monday, al-Qaida's No. 2 Ayman al-Zawahri mocked President Bush as a "failure" in the war on terror, called him a "butcher" for killing innocent Pakistanis in a miscarried airstrike and chastised the United States for rejecting Osama bin Laden's offer of a truce.

Al-Zawahri, wearing white robes and a white turban and speaking in a forceful and angry voice, also threatened a new attack in the United States — "God willing, on your own land."

The video, broadcast on Al-Jazeera TV a day before Bush delivers his State of the Union address, provided the first concrete evidence that al-Zawahri was still alive after the Jan. 13 airstrike in eastern Pakistan that targeted him but killed four other al-Qaida leaders and 13 villagers.

The message came on the heels of a Jan. 19 audiotape by bin Laden, the al-Qaida leader's first tape in more than a year. Bin Laden said his followers were preparing an attack in the United States and offered the Americans a conditional truce, though he did not spell out terms.

A U.S. counterterrorism official, who spoke on condition of anonymity in compliance with office policy, said there is no reason to doubt the authenticity of the al-Zawahri video, which U.S. intelligence officials were analyzing.

The counterterrorism official noted the video was disseminated quickly, demonstrating al-Zawahri's ability to get his message out even faster than bin Laden. That suggests the two are not hiding together and bin Laden may be in a more remote location than his deputy, the official said.

The Homeland Security Department had no immediate plans to raise the nation's terror threat levels because of the Zawahri tape. "Not at this time," said spokesman Russ Knocke said.

U.S. officials had said after the bin Laden tape that no intelligence indicated an imminent al-Qaida attack. On Monday, FBI Special Agent Richard Kolko said the bureau would ask agents around the country to review ongoing cases and tips in light of the al-Zawahri video, especially with two major events in the United States this week — the State of the Union in Washington and the Super Bowl in Detroit.

Al-Zawahri said in the video that he had a number of messages to give in the wake of the airstrike.

In one message, he invited Bush to convert to Islam. "If you accept, you will become a brother in our faith and God will forgive you your sins," the Al-Jazeera news-reader quoted him as saying. The invitation was not in the excerpts aired by the Arab satellite station.

He said the airstrike in Pakistan by an unmanned Predator craft targeted himself and four of his "brothers" in al-Qaida. Instead, he said, it killed 18 civilians — "men, women, and children" — and he called Bush "the butcher of Washington."

"Bush, you are not only defeated and a liar, but, with God's help and might, a failure. You are a curse on your own nation and you have brought and will bring them only catastrophes and tragedies," he said.

"Bush, do you know where I am? I am among the Muslim masses, enjoying God's blessing of their support, care, generosity and protection," al-Zawahri said.

He said he had a message "to the American people, who are drowning in illusions. I tell you that Bush and his gang are shedding your blood and wasting your money in failed adventures."

"The lion of Islam, Sheik Osama bin Laden, may God protect him, offered you a decent exit from your dilemma. But your leaders, who are keen to accumulate wealth, insist on throwing you into battle and killing your souls in Iraq and Afghanistan and — God willing — on your own land," he said.

The airstrike hit a building in the eastern Pakistan village of Damadola, where U.S. intelligence believed al-Zawahri had been attending an Islamic holiday dinner. U.S. and Pakistani officials said the strike killed four al-Qaida leaders including a man believed to be al-Zawahri's son-in-law. Intelligence officials said later they believe al-Zawahri sent his aides in his place to the dinner.

The deaths of the villagers in the strike sparked widespread anger in Pakistan.

Al-Zawahri warned Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf to stop cooperation with the United States, saying "your time of judgment is approaching."

In the video Monday, al-Zawahri was speaking in front of a black background. No automatic weapons were visible, unlike past videos by the al-Qaida deputy in which a gun often appeared leaning next to him. In the bottom left corner, the video had the logo in Arabic and English of Al-Sahab, an al-Qaida video production company that made some past videos by bin Laden and al-Zawahri.

Al-Jazeera aired two short excerpts from the video. It was not immediately known how long the entire tape was.

During the year of silence from bin Laden, al-Zawahri issued several video and audiotapes, including one claiming al-Qaida's responsibility for the July 7 London bombings. The last video from al-Zawahri came on Jan. 6, when he called the U.S. decision to withdraw some troops from Iraq a victory for the Islamic world.

Mark Ensalaco, an international terrorism expert at the University of Dayton, Ohio, said the tape's release may have been timed to come before Bush's State of Union address. "Al-Qaida is very conscious of such things," he said.

"Having bin Laden and al-Zawahri appear in quick succession in these tapes underscores the fact that they're alive and well and still plotting attacks," he said.

I just wonder? Seems like Aljazeera's timing is uncanny. Do you think that Aljazeera is being controlled by the same people who control the US/UK mainstream propaganda? Looks like it to me. I wonder how they do it? Question Question
