Al-Zarqawi audiotape surfaces

by on April 29th, 2005

“I want your swords to drip with the blood of your enemy,” the person said on the tape, which was posted on an Islamist Web site today. Referring to U.S. President George W. Bush, the person said, “Bush, we will not stop until we avenge our dignity, until your army withdraws from our land.”

Al-Zarqawi’s cell has taken responsibility for dozens of bombings, shootings and kidnappings in Iraq since the March 2003 U.S.-led invasion to oust Saddam Hussein, including an attack last year that killed the head of the Iraqi Governing Council, Ezzedine Salim. The U.S. government is offering a $25 million reward for information leading to al-Zarqawi’s capture.
