The Middle East's Blockbuster

Two big news announcements today about videos.


AL-JAZEERA television has aired video footage from an Iraqi militant group that shows distraught US hostage Jill Carroll reportedly appealing for the release of Iraqi women held by US-led forces.
Carroll, wearing a headscarf, was seen crying in the grainy footage that carried a January 28 date stamp and a logo showing the name of the Revenge Brigades militant group. The voice of the 28-year-old journalist, who was kidnapped on January 7, was not heard.

And Secondly:

Al Qaida's deputy leader Ayman al-Zawahri called US President George Bush a "butcher" and threatened a new attack in the United States in a videotape aired on Arab television, his first appearance since an American airstrike that targeted him this month in Pakistan.
Al-Zawahri, shown in the video wearing white robes and a white turban, said the United States had ignored an offer from al Qaida leader Osama bin Laden for a truce.

The video was aired on the Arab news network Al-Jazeera.

What does this all have in common? Al-Jazeera. Why isn't anyone staking out Al-Jazeera with a satalite or some shit?
