Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri would prefer it if everyone focused on the important things like that awful anti-Muslim movie that caused so much controversy in September. It's been just over a month since protests erupted as embassies and consulates in the Middle East over an offensive trailer for an anti-Muslim movie on Youtube. Al-Zawahiri would like to remind you they're still really mad about that. His latest dispatch encourages militants to organize more protests outside of American embassies. He also alleges the President's defending the video's free speech is proof he's waging "crusader Zionist war" against Muslims. Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, the man behind the film, is currently in custody for bail violations in relation to his role making the movie. He denied all charges last week.
