Al-Qa'ida in the Arabian Peninsula's Leader Endorses American Radical Ideologue Anwar al-'Awlaqi (Awlaki) in New Audio Message

UPDATE (May 17, 2010): A transcript in Arabic is available via my Scribd account.

"Abu Basir Nasir al-Wuhayshi, may God protect him, amir of the Al-Qa'ida Organization in the Arab(ian) Peninsula"

Al-Qa'ida in the Arabian Peninsula's (AQAP; Qaeda, Qaida) media unit, Al-Malahim (Epics), has issued a new audio message from its amir (leader), Abu Basir Nasir al-Wuhayshi (sometimes transliterated as "Wahayshi"), endorsing and pledging support for the American radical jihadi-takfiri ideologue Anwar al-'Awlaqi (Awlaki). Al-Wuhayshi threatens more severe attacks on the United States like those of September 11, 2001 if the U.S. carries out its mission to kill al-'Awlaqi.
