A rough and ready transcript of bin Laden’s statement:
He 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. Then 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.”
Bin Laden says President Bush’s words echo “neoconservatives like Cheney, Rumsfeld, and Richard Perle.”
“People of America: the world is following your news in regards to your invasion of Iraq, for people have recently come to know that, after several years of tragedies of this war, the vast majority of you want it stopped. 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.”
I wonder what Miss Nancy and Gutless Harry Reid think of being lectured to by Osama bin Laden on their own failures. Of course the conventional wisdom is that ‘Osama’s an evil enemy of ours….’ and thus you should pay no attention to what he has to say. Yep, nothing to see here…move along….nothing to see here.
You won’t get an argument from me about OBL being our enemy. Sadly, due to the luck of the draw, or corporatist and ReThuglican vote rigging take yer pick, we’ve been saddled with a guy…Mr. Decider who clearly is a sick joke, an absolute failure at the job he now holds and for that matter every other job he ever had. It’s pretty clear to me that the real reason that Rove and many others have left is that they are very worried. Worried that Bush will suffer a complete mental breakdown before his term is out. We may have seen that today.
So Osama is still on the loose and yet the ‘LeaderSheep’ of the ‘Democrat’ Party are paralyzed with fear. No, not fear of OBL. Fear of Mr. Decider. They are so scared that Miss Nancy !Gaspt! broke her promise to the folks at OrangeLand. Damn, she can’t face the rude, uncivil bloggers it’s no wonder she can’t deal with the likes of Mr. Decider, even in his mentally incompetent state, or the newest of political pundits Osama bin Laden.
MeatHaid and Tweety better watch out OBL may be about to show them how this ‘punditry’ game should be played. He’s off to a strong start.
We are truly through the looking glass folks. Check out Kid Oakland’s diary about what’s happening in ‘Democrat’ Party Land and contemplate what you are willing to do about it.
