Today, September 11, 2005, a purported audio speech by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, leader of al-Qaeda in Iraq was released to message boards on the internet regarding the fights in Tal Afar. In this speech, Zarqawi states that his mujahideen fighters repelled the Coalition attacks and accuses them of using chemical weapons in its' attacks on the cities of Al-Qaim and Tal Afar. He states
?using the most destructive weapons and the most powerful and noxious poisonous gases… But Allah let them taste, by the hands of His Mujahideen helpers, the cups of death and showed them such terror as they will never forget.?

Additionally, Zarqawi mentions Hurricane Katrina, and states ?I believe that the destructive hurricane which hit America, within its own house, was nothing but the result of a prayer of a father or a mother whose son was killed, or of boy who became an orphan, or of a woman whose honor was violated on the lands of Afghanistan, Iraq or others?.
