Hackers prevented Al Qaeda from releasing a videotape to mark the 
seventh anniversary of 9/11. Al Qaeda has traditionally issued a video 
or audiotape by either Osama bin Laden or Ayman al Zawahiri, the terror 
network=E2=80=99s two leaders, to mark their massive terrorist attack on the US.

As-Sahab, Al Qaeda=E2=80=99s media unit, had indicated earlier this week that it 
would post such a videotape on September 11. As-Sahab had banner images 
on the internet showing a silhouetted head with a question mark and the 
words, =E2=80=9CWait 11 September=E2=80=9D.

The US-based intelligence group IntelCenter had speculated the video 
would be a message from Osama or Zawahiri with a recording of the last 
will and testament of Mohammed Atta, one of the leaders of the 9/11 

Sources close to US intelligence said, =E2=80=9CHackers knocked out Al Qaeda=E2=80=99s 
online means of communication, thus preventing them from posting 
anything to commemorate the anniversary.=E2=80=9D

Western intelligence suspects two hackers who have targeted Islamicist 
sites before were responsible: Aaron Weisburd from Internet Haganah and 
Rusty Shackleford from the web group My Pet Jawa.
