Bin Laden Taunts Obama As ‘Powerless’

From his fans at the Associated Press:


Bin Laden calls Obama ‘powerless’ in Afghan war

By Maamoun Youssef, Associated Press Writer – Mon Sep 14

CAIRO – Al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden described President Barack Obama as "powerless" to stop the war in Afghanistan and threatened to step up guerrilla warfare there in a new audiotape released to mark the anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks in the United States.

In the 11-minute tape, addressed to the American people, bin Laden said Obama is only following the warlike policies of his predecessor George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney and he urged Americans to "liberate" themselves from the influence of "neo-conservatives and the Israeli lobby."

The tape was posted on Islamic militant Web sites two days after the eighth anniversary of the 2001 suicide plane hijackings. The terror leader usually addresses Americans in a message timed around the date of the attacks, which sparked the U.S.-led war in Afghanistan the same year, and then in Iraq two years later.

Bin Laden said Americans had failed to understand that al-Qaida carried out the attacks in retaliation for U.S. support for Israel. If America reconsiders its alliance with the Jewish state, al-Qaida will respond on "sound and just bases."

"If you end the war (in Afghanistan), so let it be," bin Laden said. "But if it is otherwise, all we will do is continue the war of attrition against you on all possible axes."

"You are waging a hopeless and losing war for the benefit of others, a war the end of which is not visible on the horizon," he said, according to a translation of the tape Monday by SITE Intelligence Group, a terrorist-monitoring firm, and by The Associated Press…

"The delay in your knowing those causes has cost you a lot without any result whatsoever," he said. "This position of yours, combined with some other injustices, pushed us to undertake the events of (Sept. 11)."

"Ask yourselves to determine your position: Is your security, your blood, your children, your money, your jobs, your homes, your economy, and your reputation dearer to you than the security of the Israelis, their children and their economy?" he said.

If Americans realized the extent of the suffering "suffering from the injustice of the Jews … you will realize that both our nations are victims of the policies of the White House," which he described as "a hostage" to interest groups and companies

Hey, we seem to recall that Mr. Obama claimed to be against the war in Iraq because it was a distraction from hunting down Mr. Bin Laden.

Well, what is stopping him from finding him now?

By the way, do note the spin that the AFP put on this latest tape.

What exactly is this new pressure that Mr. Bin Laden is under?

Isn’t he winning in Afghanistan (and many other places as well)?

Indeed, aren’t the Germans planning their withdrawal from the war on terror as we speak?

And aren’t we about to follow them as soon as the Democrats can manage?

    Why it’s the relentless pressure that the Terror Enemy Combatant Warrior, his highness Obama, is putting on Bin Laden, of course.

    All that smart power, all of that strategic thinking, the new world alliance that Mr. Obamy has created, the strengh of a globally moral leader….all of that has Osama quaking in his boots.

    We are all eternally grateful.

    And he does it out of his back pocket as he re-orders the world economy and social order with turns of his wrist.

      I knew that when Barry was annointed, that we could feel safe because he was gonna THINK bin laden out of the caves. Well, it appears to be working.

  2. Howard Roark says:

    How long will it take Barry’s racebaiters to call UBL a racist for disagreeing with him?

    “If America reconsiders its alliance with the Jewish state, al-Qaida will respond on “sound and just bases.” …”

    Translation: Allow a second holocaust to occur, and we’ll save blowing up American kuffirs for last. Gee, and we have a Carter in office?

    God Help Us with This Dope as President.

    With friends like US, Israel has got enough enemies. I’m still trying to figure out how Arab facsists are allowed to get away with what Jews are doing to the Muslims. From my score card, when it comes to surpressing & killing Arabs & followers of Islam, Israel is loosing in a blow out.

    (I do hear though that they got one hum dinger of a 2 minute drill planned though).

    I thought using the T word was a no no? Shouldn’t someone tell the AP?

    How hard can it be to find a 6′, 5″ bozo in a turban anyway? Come on Barry. Maybe if you invite him over for a beer during Ramalamadingdong you two can sit down and talk this little disagreement out. Promise him 100 virgins.

  6. Liberals Demise says:

    If only Osama would come in and have a beer with Obama things would be OOOoooooo so much better.

    Hey Osama …… Obama hasn’t apologized to you yet!!
    “COME ON DOWN!!!!”

    • WendyB says:

      Oblahblah is still doing stretching exercises so that he can bow down to Osama EVEN LOWER than he did to the Saudi king. Actually, I hear The Consort has started yoga and stretching classes to help Barry bow down to more Muslim leaders and the rest of us bend over for health care reform (“this won’t hurt . . . much”).

  7. Reality Bytes says:

    “You Say Obama”

    “And I Say Osama”

    “You Say Osama”

    “And I Say Obama”

    “Obama, Osama, Osama, Obama”

    “LET’S CALL THE WHOLE THING OFF!”
