Al-Qaeda cash problem

Al-Qaeda finances seem to be in disarray, according to this:

Al-Qaida video messages of Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahri can now be downloaded to cell phones, the terror network announced as part of its attempts to extend its influence.
Influence - shminfluence, come on, folks, let's not mince the words. If you are using that Adam Gadahn creep as your chief salesman (when it is widely known that the only sale he made in his life was his candidacy for the Al Qaeda spokesman job), your cash situation is not good, let's be straight about this, at least.

And selling clips of the poorly staged speeches by your various cave dwellers can never compete with such luminaries of freedom as Laure Manaudou, Noelia, Pamela Anderson and many others. So keep dreaming.

On the other hand, a free clip of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's last 30 seconds, accompanied by some easy elevator music... Hmmm.... let me think about it...
