“We mark in these days the passage of nearly 15 years since the blessed invasions in Washington, New York and Pennsylvania,” Ayman al-Zawahiri says in the video, according to a translation by the SITE Intelligence Group.
Al-Zawahiri later threatens the U.S. again, saying that “as long as your crimes continue, then the events of Sept. 11 will be repeated a thousand times, Allah permitting.”
