Cars warning each other of collisions? US to propose new rules in hopes of cutting crashes
The leader of al Qaeda called on rival Islamic groups in Syria to end their infighting and focus on battling President Bashar Assad's forces in a recording released Thursday.
The militants who gathered on the night of Sept. 11, 2012, to torch and kill inside the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, were a who's who of the modern al Qaeda movement, newly declassified documents show.
Al Qaeda terror network leader Ayman al-Zawahri sent out a message marking Sept. 11, 2001, with a call for more attacks on U.S. soil, aimed at hitting America hard in the pocketbook.
Egyptian authorities have arrested the brother of al Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahri, a security official said Saturday.
The intelligence community also knew that exactly one day prior to the attacks, al-Zawahri called on his followers in Libya to avenge the death of Abu Yahya al-Libi, a senior al Qaeda operative from Libya, who had been killed in a U.S. drone attack in June.
"These kinds of organizations did have plans for attacks, but I'm not sure if they had a plan for that particular day," he said. "They probably just pulled some stuff off the shelf and implemented that day."
