    Islamabad, Pakistan (CNN) -- Al Qaeda's second-in-command lashed out at the Pakistani government in a purported statement released Wednesday, saying it had turned on its people by cooperating with the United States and its allies.

    The statement, attributed to Ayman al-Zawahiri, referred to Pakistan's leader, Asif Ali Zardari, as a "robber president," who can't deal with the aftermath of devastating floods that have inundated the country.

    Pakistani foreign ministry spokesman Abdul Basit dismissed al-Zawahiri's claims and said: "Zawahiri's claims are not worth our reaction."

    A spokesman for Zardari's ruling Pakistan People's Party also blasted al-Zawahiri's remarks.

    "The president is not a robber, he was voted in by two thirds of Parliamentarians. How can people elect a robber as President?" said Fouzia Wahab. "The president is fully engaged in dealing with the people's tragedy and God is with him."

    The statement also linked Zardari to the U.S. war effort in Afghanistan and to allegations of American desecrations of Qurans.

    The people of Pakistan are sinning by being silent against the current administration, he wrote.

    The statement also expressed the terrorist leader's condolences for victims of the recent flooding in Pakistan. More than 1,600 people have died, according to the country's disaster authority, and at least 17 million Pakistanis have been affected.

    The statement declared that Zawahiri wished for al Qaeda to be there to help with aid efforts, "but the treasonous ruling class in the Pakistani government and army came -- and continues to come -- between us and this honor, as a service to the senior criminals in Washington, London and Tel Aviv."

    The al Qaeda second-in-command also took aim at what he characterized as American manipulation of the transition from former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf to Zardari, and claimed that the United States was trying to do the same with the candidacy of Mohamed ElBaradei in Egypt.

    "There must be awareness of the flimsiness of the position which says that we might be able to achieve our liberty, honor and dignity by rallying around American influence and following its emissaries," he said. "All this flimsy call will bring us is a move from one vassalage to another vassalage and from one corruption to another corruption."

    Zawahri has found one thing which unites him and us ... our 'love' for the 'Icon' of corruption . Lets remove this stigma of a President ... oh no 'democracy' is endangered if we do that ... WTF

    Pot calling kettle black.

    What the lives of 1000s of innocent men women and children that have been lost because of Zawahiri? And that to be perverting the religion of Islam to achive it.

    That is a much much bigger crime.
