New Bin Laden message set for Iraq war's 5th anniversary

Al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden will be issuing a new message right around the 5th anniversary of the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, announced a militant website with close connections to the group Wednesday.

 

"Urgent, very soon by the will of God," read the announcement of the new message. "The response is what you see and not what you hear, by the warrior sheik, Osama bin Laden." The announcement was text only and showed no pictures of the elusive militant leader. (AP)
