A photo of Al Qaeda's new leader, Egyptian Ayman al-Zawahiri, is seen in this still image taken from a video released on September 12, 2011. Al Qaeda has released a message in which Osama bin Laden's successor as the group's leader, al-Zawahiri said al Qaeda supported the Arab Spring. The hour-long video was released to mark the 10th anniversary of al Qaeda's Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on the United States. The SITE Monitoring Service, which tracks jihadist statements, quoted al-Zawahiri as saying he hoped the protest movements that have overthrown leaders in Egypt, Tunisia and Libya would establish what he called true Islam.
