Description:
The 530-page IntelCenter Words of Ayman al-Zawahiri Vol. 1 is the definitive reference work of Ayman al-Zawahiri's statements. It contains the full English translations of 36 statements from 2002-2008. The words of Ayman al-Zawhiri provide critical insights into al-Qaeda. They are essential in understanding its intentions, shifts in focus, difficulties, current and long-term objectives, targeting preferences and more. This volume is designed to provide the intelligence, military and law enforcement communities, as well as researchers, scholars and others, a professional-level reference work bringing all of Ayman al-Zawahiri's primary statements together in one place. It focuses on audio and video statements where al-Zawahiri was the primary or sole speaker. Al-Zawahiri also gave other significant statements during this period in videos where other speakers appeared. Those statements will be the focus of Volume 2.
This volume works with three primary types of material. The two most heavily weighted in the selection process are English language transcripts produced by al-Qaeda and exact transcripts of the English subtitling in al-Qaeda's videos. Wherever possible these two types are used. If they are not available, then the best quality translation available of the spoken Arabic was used. At the top of each statement the source material type is indicated in the version section.
"Due to the variety of source material, there are noticeable variations in spellings, names and other areas from one statement to another. This was unavoidable as we felt it was critical to preserve the exact copy of al-Qaeda's actual English writings, to include grammatical and spelling errors. This allows analysts and others to use these transcripts in a variety of analytical efforts that would not be possible had everything been standardized." -- From IntelCenter website.
