Al Qaeda attempts to undermine new Islamic State with old video of Osama bin Laden

On July 13, al Qaeda’s propaganda arm, As Sahab, tweeted a link to an old video of Osama bin Laden. Judging by markers in the video, including bin Laden’s reference to the USS Cole bombing taking place “nine months ago” (al Qaeda attacked the Cole on Oct. 12, 2000),  it appears the video was recorded in the middle of 2001…

Read the Long War Journal’s analysis at the link. You can even watch the full 1 hr and 10 min video. Al Qaeda is really getting desperate.
