On September 15, al Qaeda's as-Sahab Media released a speech by Ayman al-Zawahiri to commemorate the ninth anniversary of the "start of the crusader campaign." Although the ninth anniversary of 9/11 clearly influenced as-Sahab's timing, al-Zawahiri's speech never mentioned the attacks on New York and Washington. For the moment at least, al Qaeda aims not to remind viewers of the destruction it caused nine years ago, but to remind potential supporters of the grievances it hopes will motivate them today.
