Bin Laden Praises 9/11 “Champions” – Video

From his fans and allies at Reuters:

Bin Laden praises 9/11 “champions”

By Lin Noueihed

DUBAI (Reuters) – Osama bin Laden defied the United States with a new tape praising the “19 champions” who carried out the Sept. 11 suicide hijackings, on the day America remembered the nearly 3,000 people who died.

In a tape released on Tuesday to mark the sixth anniversary of the attacks, bin Laden’s voice can be heard introducing the video testament of Waleed al-Shehri, one of two Saudi brothers who helped Mohamed Atta slam the first hijacked plane into New York’s World Trade Center.

Al-Shehri was a magnificent young man “who personally penetrated the most extreme degrees of danger and is a rarity among men: one of the 19 champions,” the al Qaeda leader said, referring to the number of hijackers…

The new al Qaeda tape did not feature moving images of bin Laden but showed a still photo of him with raised finger, apparently taken from last week’s video.

A U.S. intelligence official said the voice appeared genuinely to be that of bin Laden.

While some security analysts say bin Laden’s videos may be coded calls for new attacks, White House homeland security adviser Fran Townsend rejected that view and called the al Qaeda leader “virtually impotent.”

Hijacker al-Shehri was shown wearing white robes in the video by the network’s production arm as-Sahab, which superimposed him on a backdrop featuring a model airplane and an image of New York’s burning Twin Towers.

In his testament, he quoted part of the Muslim holy book, the Koran, which he believes commands Muslims to fight infidels.

“The difference between us and you — O cowards — is that you fear death and are frightened by it, whereas we hope for it and seek it in God’s path.”

And yet Cindy Sheehan, George Soros and the rest of the lunatic left still insist that 9/11 was an inside job.

In his testament, he quoted part of the Muslim holy book, the Koran, which he believes commands Muslims to fight infidels.

Gosh, where did he ever get such a crazy idea?
