New Videotape From Bin Laden; Al Qaeda's No. 1 Still Alive
Intelligence sources tell ABC News they believe the video message from Osama bin Laden is authentic, recently produced and evidence the al Qaeda leader is still alive.The Bush administration has many failures but that Osama bin Laden is still free and alive has to be the biggest. At least a portion of the miserable Bush legacy will be that they let Osama get away - the "real enemy" get away. Not only did they let him get away the Bush administration has done everything Osama could have wanted him to do. The invasion of Iraq was the greatest thing that could have happened to increase the influence, power and recruiting of bin Laden and al-Qaeda. Some legacy you have there George.
According to government sources, an initial analysis of the tape indicates "a lot of chest thumping" and of course historical references "alluding" to the successful attack on New York.
And a CIA spokesman told ABC News, "It's quite possible this is a new video."
U.S. authorities earlier this morning said the tape's transcript is aimed at potential suicide bombers who he urges to carry out missions against the West.
From the comments:
Please understand that NOT apprehending Osama is a key part of the Bush strategy. Osama has NEVER been bush's target. It is impossible to imagine that anyone can believe otherwise. If we really wanted him, we would get him. Our military is not incompetent. But Bush's criminal war would be ended if Osama was somehow eliminated. Bush and his mafia might be the vile criminals I believe them to be, but our military is definitely NOT of that ilk. So, I must assume that we have had Osama in our sights on more than one occasion and taking him out has probably been vetoed by the White House each time. It is a shame that no one from the military has stepped forward with the truth about this. Probably hamstrung by that 'Commander-in-Chief" title that all presidents have.Of course he is absolutely correct and I have said as much here on more than one occasion. Dubya and Osama have a symbiotic relationship - each one is strengthened by the acts of the other. That of course makes it all the more important to ask the question.
