[Osama bin Laden] says to the American people, “you made one of your greatest mistakes, in that you neither brought to account nor punished those who waged this war, not even the most violent of its murderers, [former Defense Secretary Donald] Rumsfeld…”
“You permitted Bush to complete his first term, and stranger still, chose him for a second term, which gave him a clear mandate from you — with your full knowledge and consent — to continue to murder our people in Iraq and Afghanistan. [GP Ed. Note: Calling John Kerry, Jack Murtha & Dick Durbin! Osama is stealing your material!!]
“You claim to be innocent! The innocence of yours is like my innocence of the blood of your sons on the 11th — were I to claim such a thing.” [Has he also read OJ Simpson’s book draft??!!]
Bin Laden says President Bush’s words echo “neoconservatives like Cheney, Rumsfeld, and Richard Perle.”
“Thus, you elected the Democratic Party for this purpose, but the Democrats haven’t made a move worth mentioning. On the contrary, they continue to agree to the spending of tens of billions to continue the killing and war there.” [Paging Cindy Sheehan! Osama is stealing YOUR material, too!]
He goes on to call Noam Chomsky “among one of the most capable of those from your own side,” and mentions global warming and “the Kyoto accord.” [Al Gore, calling Al Gore!]
“To conclude,” bin Laden says, “I invite you to embrace Islam.” He goes on to say: “There are no taxes in Islam, but rather there is a limited Zakaat [alms] totaling 2.5 percent.” [Oh, and there are no gays in Islam either.]
Is these a foreshadowing of things to come? I can see the bumper stickers now! Osama/Obama ’08. Hillary/Bin Laden — Bill Misses You. Edwards/Osama – Delivering Both Americas To Islamism.
