A top Taliban commander said Al-Qaeda mastermind Osama bin Laden is alive and well, according to US-based analysts monitoring extremist publications. “All praise be to Allah, he is extremely healthy and active,” the commander Mansour Dadullah said in a video interview, according to a transcript of the video’s English subtitled translation, released Tuesday by the analyst IntelCenter.

Dadullah, whose brother Mullah Dadullah was also a top commander in the Afghanistan-based militants and was killed this year, said he had been contacted by Bin Laden, the man blamed for the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States.

“I received a message from him in which he advised me ‘I must follow Mullah Dadullah and continue the same activities so that the mujahedeen (Islamic fighters) may not weaken,” he said, according to the transcript.

He also says Mousaui had nothing to do with 9-11.

“He has no connection whatsoever with the events of September 11th, and I am certain of what I say, because I was responsible for entrusting the 19 brothers — Allah have mercy upon them — with those raids, and I did not assign brother Zacarias to be with them on that mission,” bin Laden said.

In that voice message, bin Laden also said that the prisoners being held at the US base at Guantanamo in Cuba had “no connection with the events of September 11th and knew nothing about them, with the exception of two of the brothers.”

Some Al-Qaeda analysts said the recording marked the first time bin Laden unequivocally claimed responsibility for the 9-11 attacks.
