The BBC says:

The US Republican Party has launched a controversial terror-linked TV advertisement to bolster support ahead of mid-term elections next month.

The footage shows al-Qaeda leaders with captions of threatening statements, while the soundtrack of a ticking bomb plays in the background.

The advertisement, which ends with the sound of a bomb exploding, is due to air from Sunday.
Both Osama Bin Laden and his second in command, Ayman al-Zawahiri, are shown in the commercial, which is entitled "The Stakes".

Attributed quotes such as "Kill the Americans" and "What is yet to come will be even greater" are flashed across the screen.

Gun-bearing militants in training camps are also shown, followed by the stark message: "These are the stakes. Vote November 7th."

What a surprise, the Republican Party is run by scum who try and scare voters. That is the main way they win elections (well, that and disenfranchising Democrat voters illegally, and vastly outspending Democrats). It would not be half so bad if they had not actually increased the terrorist threat in the world through their utter arrogance and incompetence, in particular letting Bin Laden go in Afghanistan while launching their illegal and party political war in Iraq.
