A 21:46 minute video containing the Eid al-Fitr sermon on the occasion of the end of Ramadan in 2005, spoken by Abu Yehia al-Libi in front of a group of Afghan mujahideen, was recently distributed across several jihadist forums. The video depicts not only the speech, but a military training regime by those in attendance, in which al-Libi also participates. During the sermon, al-Libi assures that the American?s ?noses will be rubbed in the dirt? and America will fall like the previous empires.
Abu Yehia al-Libi escaped from the U.S. prison in Bagram, Afghanistan, the main prison for Taliban and al-Qaeda suspects in Afghanistan, in July 2005, with three other detainees.
