Self styled "Emir of al-Qaeda in Iraq" Taunts Rumsfeld for His "Retreat" and Calls America a "Crippled Duck"!

"I tell the lame duck [administration]: do not rush to escape as did your defense minister," Muhajir said, according to Reuters. "Stay on the battleground." LA Times
An organization called SITE (The Search for International Terrorist Entities) reports the highlights of an audiotaped speech attributed to the self-styled "Emir of al-Qaeda in Iraq," Abu Hamza al-Muhajir, also known as Abu Ayyub al-Masri.

The tape is called “There is No Judgment, but that of Allah."
The full text of the speech is available to subscribers.

I am trying to find a transcript of this speech.

SITE writes:

Muhajir speaks in the regard of recent events, including the establishment of the Islamic State, American elections in which the Democratic Party gained power within Congress, and the resignation of Donald Rumsfeld as the U.S. Secretary of Defense. These events, he believes, are portents of the victory of the Mujahideen, but on this he does not dwell. Rather, he speaks at greater length to the Mujahideen, specifically calling for the first time to those in Ansar al-Sunnah, the Islamic Army in Iraq, and the Mujahideen Army for their unity with the Islamic State, and continuity of jihad until they grab hold of the White House.

Muhajir observes the American people putting their foot “on the right path,” and executing wise judgment in the elections on Tuesday, November 7, realizing the “treachery” of U.S. President George W. Bush and his supporters of Israel. However, he questions if the politicians will fulfill their campaign promises to their constituents and “relieve the hearts of the mothers by bringing back their children from the teeth of the lions of the Land of Two Rivers”. He then taunts the U.S., calling the state a “crippled duck,” [probably from the expression "lame duck"] and asking them not to be as hasty in their retreat as Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, for the Mujahideen are not yet satisfied with the blood of the American soldier in Iraq; an Iraq where even an illiterate farmer, imbued with the doctrine of “No God, but Allah,” is capable of detonating an explosive device on a symbol of America. To President Bush directly, Muhajir claims that he was deceived by the Shi’ites of Iran to use American soldiers as a conduit to extend the Persian Empire, without firing one bullet or sacrificing one soldier of their own.
