After the London bombings on July 7, 2005, al Qaeda second-in-command Ayman “al-Zawahiri told the British people in an audiotaped message on 4 August 2005 that ‘[U.K. Prime Minister Tony] Blair has brought destruction to the heart of London,’ and many British people did indeed consider him to be personally responsible because of his decision to participate in the invasion of Iraq.”
