$ 19.99 USD
Publication Date: 5 November 2012
This full-color book serves as a chronological reference to al-Qaeda Organization in the Land of the Islamic Maghreb (AQLIM) audio/video releases from 2007 to 3 Nov. 2012. The official video production group of AQLIM is al-Andalus. Releases from al-Andalus will have the al-Andalus logo displayed next to the AQLIM logo. This book includes releases before the appearance of al-Andalus in 2009. The book is designed to allow you to rapidly scan and identify releases of interest. It contains listings for 78 releases covering 30 hours, 29 minutes and 27 seconds of material.
Each listing contains the date of release, group name and logo, associated country and flag, release title, video type, primary spoken and subtitle languages, runtime, top two identified new appearances, whether it is from a supporter group, the logos of the video production arm and supporter group and up to six representative stills from the video. Every listing also contains a unique Video ID# that can be used to reference the release and pull up the release s full entry in the IntelCenter Database (ICD) or Terrorist Video Database (TVD) where a complete, high-quality streaming version can be watched if you have an ICD account. The representative stills are taken by an analyst and selected to give you the best idea of what the video contains within six stills. If fewer than six stills are shown it is because the video did not contain any significantly different scenes then what is displayed. For example, if a video statement from Ayman al-Zawahiri shows a still photograph of him for the entire length of the video, then only one still would be shown. If the video showed al-Zawahiri moving, then multiple stills would be shown. If all six slots are used, then the video will often contain more types of scenes then can be represented and it is best to watch the full video to get a complete understanding of what it contains.
Due to the fluid nature of terrorist and rebel audio/video collection, release listings are always increasing even long after their release period and details are constantly being added as additional clarity is reached. As additional listings for the year are discovered, new editions to this title will be released. Always refer to the IntelCenter Database (ICD) for the latest and most comprehensive listings. This book only represents a snapshot from the time of its release.
The book is designed to provide a professional-level reference resource to intelligence analysts, operators, security professionals, researchers and others working in the counterterrorism field.
