I was wrong. I thought Osama was dead, killed in the mountains of Tora Bora back in 2002. But, if this tape al-Jazeera released today is deemed authentic, it's one of the greatest games of possum ever played.
President Bush and his Administration were wise not to have suggested that he was dead. They have always publicly assumed, whether they believed it or not, that Osama was still alive and on the run. Pervez Musharraf has long believed that, but I figured that Osama would have had plenty of opportunities by now to wag his finger in our faces.
The message was clearly released now in attempt to influence our elections, but I don't know how that will play out. It can't be too comfortable a feeling for the Kerrion to know that Osama could have been speaking straight from one of their press releases. And, of course, Osama appears to be a fan of the America-hater Michael Moore. Will the Moore-ons pretend it's not so? No. They're probably proud to be validated in this way. That's because people who believe in the message of Fahrenheit 9/11 are ill-informed stooges for Islamofascism.
"It never occurred to us that the commander in chief of the country (Bush) would leave 50,000 citizens in the two towers to face those horrors alone ... because he thought listening to a child discussing her goats was more important."And you know this is a damning criticism from a man whose culture prizes the sexual qualities of goats more than those of actual women.
Let's see how Kerry responds to this endorsement from Osama. He should probably tread lightly, lest his words be seen as an acceptance of that support.
