After the ninth anniversary of the Sept.11th attacks, Al Qaeda's second in command Ayman Al-Zawahiri has released another audio recording with an English transcript on various jihadi websites.

Zawahiri spoke about current events including devastating Pakistani floods and President Obama winning the Nobel Peace prize.

The audio message was accompanied by a previously seen photo of Zawahiri and is being analyzed by the intelligence community.

Ben Venske of the Intel Center, a private organization which analyzes jihadi propaganda videos tells ABC News the statement was released in a distribution pattern typically used by Al Qaeda and appears to be authentic.
