Al-Qaida message threatens White House

BAGHDAD, Nov. 10 (UPI) -- An alleged audio recording of the leader of al-Qaida in Iraq has him vowing to fight on until "we blow up the wicked house known as the White House."

The recorded voice, posted on an Islamist Web site, told the group's U.S. foes, "We haven't had enough of your blood yet."

CNN said the speaker was identified as Abu Hamza al-Muhajir, successor to Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.

The speaker called U.S. President Bush a "lame duck" and labeling outgoing U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld a "coward." Bush is advised not to "run away as your lame defense secretary ran away," referring to Rumsfeld's resignation this week.

The message saluted the U.S. congressional election outcome as a vote "for a level of reason."
