|Title:||From absence to presence: understanding Bin Laden's and Al-Zarqawi's Recent Recordings||Authors:||Silm, Bouchaib||Keywords:||DRNTU::Social sciences::Political science||Issue Date:||2006||Source:||Silm, B. (2006). From absence to presence: understanding Bin Laden's and Al-Zarqawi's Recent Recordings. (RSIS Commentaries, No. 044). RSIS Commentaries. Singapore: Nanyang Technological University.||Series/Report no.:||RSIS Commentaries, 044-06||Abstract:||In an audio tape released on May 2006, Osama bin Laden for the first time admitted his involvement in the attacks of September 11th. This release follows the leader of al-Qaeda in Iraq Abu Mus'ab al-Zarqawi's first ever appearance on video. Both events raise the interesting question: Why now? Although both individuals may have their own personal reasons for releasing tapes, it is highly probable their release is an attempt to shore up support for a war that is not going as well as planned.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/82222
