"Abu Yahya al-Libis Long, Lonely Journey"
SNIPPET: "On 29 April 2010, Abu Yahya al-Libi penned a statement entitled, Jihad and the Battle of Dubious Claims. Released in early June, this essay is nothing if not one of his seminal works."
SNIPPET: "Im just not seeing how this essay is going to be rousing jihadists to action any time soon. I see in his writing a man that has been continuously reading, thinking and talking about the steep hill that global jihadist movement must trudge. But I also see a man who is growing frustrated with what he believes to be obvious lies and treachery convincing Muslims not to climb that steep hill with him. I see a man who is weary, embattled but resolute, trying desperately to feed with one hand yet must slap with the other. I see a man who is alone in his intellect and his thoughts, trying desperately, yet futilely to carry the global jihadist movement on his back."

Abu Yahya al-Libi, a Libyan citizen, is an Islamic scholar who was captured by authorities in 2002 and imprisoned at Bagram Air Force Base in Afghanistan. Al-Libi escaped in July 2005, and has since appeared in a number of propaganda videos, using his religious training to influence people and legitimize the actions of al-Qa´ida.
Al-Libi is a key motivator in the global jihadi movement and his messages convey a clear threat to U.S. persons or property worldwide. Al-Libi is believed to be in hiding in Afghanistan or Pakistan.
