Yeah, this last little tape really went around the bend, guys.
"Bin Laden blames US for global warming in tape; Calls on world to boycott goods made in America" by Lee Keath and Salah Nasrawi, Associated Press | January 30, 2010
CAIRO - Osama bin Laden sought to draw a wider public into his fight against the United States in a new message yesterday, dropping his usual talk of religion and holy war and focusing instead on an unexpected topic: global warming.
The Al Qaeda leader blamed the United States and other industrialized nations for climate change and said the only way to prevent disaster was to break the American economy, calling on the world to boycott US goods and stop using the dollar.... bin Laden said in the audiotape, aired on the Arab TV network Al-Jazeera....
Pretty wordy for a DEAD GUY.
So when did Al-Jazeera start working for the CIA?
Bin Laden and other Al Qaeda leaders have mentioned global warming and struck an antiglobalization tone in previous tapes and videos.
Looks like you have a NEW ALLY, enviro-crazies!
But the latest was the first message by bin Laden solely dedicated to the topic. It was also nearly empty of the Islamic militant rhetoric that usually fills his declarations. The change in rhetoric aims to give Al Qaeda’s message an appeal beyond hard-core Islamic militants, said Evan Kohlmann, of globalterroralert.com, a private, US-based terrorism analysis group.
“It’s a bridge issue,’’ Kohlmann said. “They are looking to appeal to people who don’t necessarily love Al Qaeda but who are angry at the US and the West, to galvanize them against the West’’ and make them more receptive to “alternative solutions like adopting violence for the cause.’’
Stop it, it's starting to hurt.
“If you’re looking to draw people who are disenchanted or disillusioned, what better issue to use than global warming,’’ he said.
Yeah, let's join up with Al-CIA-Duh because of global warming.
While the focus on climate may be new, the tactic itself is not, he said: Al Qaeda used issues like the abuse of prisoners by US soldiers at Abu Ghraib in Iraq and the US prison at Guantanamo Bay to reach out to Muslims who might not be drawn to Al Qaeda’s ideology but are angry over the injustices. Bin Laden “looks to see the issues that are the most cogent and more likely to get popular support,’’ Kohlmann said.
The Al Qaeda leader’s call for an economic boycott helps in the appeal - providing a nonviolent way to participate in opposing the United States....
WTF is this?
DO NOT LUMP ME in with that CIA CREATION!!!!!!!!!!!
Prop 101: The "Terrorism" Business
"Al-CIA-Duh" School in SomaliaWhat do you mean there is no Al Qaeda?
You mean Al Qaeda doesn't even exist?
Yup, and a DEAD GUY from the GRAVE carrying the CALL, huh?
Al-Jazeera aired excerpts of the message and posted a transcript on its website. The tape’s authenticity could not be independently confirmed, but the voice resembled that of bin Laden on messages known to be from him.
When Seeing and Hearing Isn't Believing
Yeah, but it was him.
The new message comes after a bin Laden tape released last week in which he endorsed a failed attempt to blow up an American airliner on Christmas Day. In the new tape, bin Laden refers to the Dec. 18 climate conference in Copenhagen - indicating the message was made recently.
Wow, he sure has a lot of access to news for a guy in hiding and on the run.
"Bin Laden endorses Dec. plane bomb plot" by Jason Keyser, Associated Press | January 25, 2010
CAIRO - Osama bin Laden endorsed the failed attempt to blow up a US airliner on Christmas Day and threatened new attacks against the United States in an audio message released yesterday....
That the BEST YOU CAN DO, bin Laden?

But US officials and several researchers who track terrorist groups said there was no indication that bin Laden or any of his top lieutenants had anything to do with or even knew in advance of the Christmas plot.... The one-minute message was explicit in its threat of new attacks. Like the airline bombing plot, bin Laden said they would come in response to America’s support for Israel. “God willing, our raids on you will continue as long as your support for the Israelis continues,’’ bin Laden said in the recording, which was released to the Al-Jazeera news channel....
Yes, put your waist-high waders on, readers. The BS is going to get mighty thick!
The message, which White House officials said could not immediately be authenticated, raised again the question of how much of a link exists between Al Qaeda’s top leadership along the Afghan-Pakistani border and the handful of loosely affiliated groups operating in the Arabian Peninsula, North Africa, and Iraq. The Al Qaeda leader, who was last heard from in September, seemed intent on showing he remains more than an ideological figurehead, as most analysts have suggested he has become during the terror network’s evolution into decentralized offshoots. But some questioned whether Al Qaeda’s core leadership was involved. “They weren’t putting the final touches on this operation,’’ said Evan Kohlmann, a senior investigator for the New York-based NEFA Foundation, which researches Islamic militants.
And WITHOUT "terrorists" he's out of work, isn't he?
Still, the Saudi and Yemeni leaders of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, which formed in Yemen a year ago, have a long history of direct personal contact with bin Laden. It is plausible that - if they were able to - they would have informed bin Laden of the airliner plot and sought his approval, Kohlmann said....
The Yemen offshoot is largely self-sustaining, with its own theological figures, bomb makers, and a network for funneling in recruits. There was no way to verify the voice on the audio message was actually bin Laden’s, but US-based IntelCenter, which monitors militant messages, said the manner of the recording’s release, its content, and other factors indicated it was credible.
Oh, the IntelCenter, huh?
Yeah, weird how they are always first on the scene, huh?--more--"
And hey, EVEN the Boston Globe knows he is LYING!
"Read between bin Laden’s lies
NOBODY IN his right mind would expect any truth-telling from Osama bin Laden’s latest audiotape....
Still, it is important to spot the particular deceptions bin Laden is peddling, because they reveal how badly Al Qaeda has alienated Muslim audiences around the world....
From the Zionist War Daily, ha-ha-ha-ha!!!
A recent report by the Combating Terrorism Center at West Point found that only 2 percent (12 of 661) of people killed in Al Qaeda attacks between 2006 and 2008 were from the West - 98 percent were from Muslim-majority countries. The carnage perpetrated by Al Qaeda in Iraq led to armed resistance by fellow Sunni Arabs. No less telling is the response of the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas to Al Qaeda affiliates in Gaza. Those intruders are being crushed as enemies of Palestinian national aspirations....
Yup, looking more like Al-CIA-Duh all the time!
