New Osama VIDEO tape released on Al Jazeera

BREAKING: A new video tape of Osama Bin Laden, codemning President George W. Bush, has surfaced on Al Jazeera.

Senior intelligence sources have indicated that Bin Laden is speaking directly to the American people.

Sounds like he's giving his endorsement of John Kerry.

More details as they come.

UPDATE 4:30P ET Says the US resembles "corrupt Arab governments."

Osama also says the 9/11 attacks would have been less severe if we (as a nation) had been more alert.

He also accused the Bush Administration of "misleading" the American people in the years since 9/11.

I was joking before, but this REALLY DOES sound like Osama is campaigning for Kerry!

UPDATE 5P ET: According to Al Jazeera, Bin Laden's statements were critical of President Bush, but warned the American public that John Kerry would not be able to safeguard things either.

He accused Bush of reacting slowly to the September 11 attacks, saying: "I never thought that the supreme leader would leave 50,000 of his people in the two towers to face the terrifying events alone at the time they were in need for him."

Refering to next week's elections, he told Americans: "Your security is not in the hands of (Democratic candidate John) Kerry or (President George W.) Bush or al-Qaida. Your security is in your own hands ...."

Claiming responsibility for the attacks, bin Ladin said, "we decided to destroy towers in America," because "we want to regain the freedom of our nation."

He added that "the reasons to repeat what happened" on 11 September 2001 remain.

UPDATE 5:45P ET: Both President Bush and Senator Kerry are set to make responding statements to the Osama tape within the next hour or so. Stay tuned.

UPDATE 5:50P ET: Kerry's statement:

As Americans, we are absolutely united in our determination to hunt down and destroy Osama Bin Laden....I will stop at nothing to capture or kill these terrorists...
Bush's statement:
Americans will not be intimidated or influenced by an enemy of our country. I'm sure Senator Kerry agrees with me on this. We're at war with these terrorists, and I'm confident that we will prevail.

It is Possible that Osama Bin Laden may be fooling our nation into Believing that John Kerry would be a safer president so he can attack us unprepared under kerrys rule. He knows Bush is stronger army wise. So by threatining us with his video he can trick us.

Yes It's clear that Kerry and Osama have come up with a secret pact to destroy the US. Obviously John Kerry personally told the military to leave 760,000 pounds of high explosives unguarded as well. And it was Kerry that ran and hid on September 11th. Don't listen to Osama, listen to Iran! Iran wants Bush!

Osama worked for the CIA and likely still does.
9/11 was a good excuse for an oil grab (oil=power). The terrorist group responsible for the WTC van bombing some years back had a US federal agent under deep cover. It seems like it would have been a good time to blow your cover to stop the bombing of one of the towers. Normally insurance has clauses to avoid acts of God or terrorists. Not the WTC. The poor Japs got caught holding the bag (underwriters for the WTC insurance). So the destruction only cost lives. Cheap in this world of greed and hate. We got a long way to go for the world to be the happy garden it can be. It takes seeing people as fellow human beings, even the angry, poorer, less educated people. If they cross the line, sure justice matters. So too matters the conditions that forment and perpetuate economic injustice. While differences in economic contitions can be healthy for motivation and stimulation of society, extreams of wealth and poverty are destructive to health. Caring for others, work and sacrifice will bring the world we want when we resolve to go on that diet, and start exercising.

are you all nuts. bush is an idiot who let the wrong person go free. at least kerry won't lie to your face.

Posted by: jamie at October 31, 2004 06:26 PM

First off, Kerry already has lied to our collective faces. Secondly, there was no proof that Osama was in Tora Bora to begin with. Thirdly, even if we know for certain that Osama WAS in Tora Bora, there was no logistical way to go in immediately after we bombed it into oblivion. But yet we've had troops there since that point.

So NOW what's your excuse?

Uh, Clinton had Osama Bin Laden offered to him by Saudi Arabia and refused to take him.

BUSH, KERRY and OSAMA will be pleased to see all the propaganda is working record turnouts at the polls are expected which proves in its self that you all think the presnt system can work in some way. People must learn that the system was set up to help the powerful and all the elections prove is that people beleive it will work, it wont and never has not in any country. what we need to do is get our heads together and work out a system that benefits every person on the planet and not just the powerful. THERE REALLY IS ENOUGH FOR EVERYONE

well,great job osama i appriciate that and you are right that no one can secure US.so that,s an important point for the americans and they must think about this.

Posted by: wahid at November 1, 2004 01:45 PM

Osama was not endorsing Kerry, he said that neither Bush nor Kerry can secure our nation.
He said our security is in our own hands, but that is not true. A lot of us want peace, but the majority don't.

*We don't want to fight and kill and destroy other nations, but the war-hungry majority won't listen to us.

You girls and guys have a major problem on your hands.... you all as american citizens have the god given right and duty to vote for a leader that you think will be best for the job. Please do not obscure judgement with name calling and remember the profound effect you all will have as the votes are counted. You are, after all the only super power left on this globe. With that title comes imense responsibility. A lot of people are watching/fretting over the pros and cons each presidential hopeful displays. Do not let some dirt covered sweat smelling individual in front of a stolen handy cam influence you. heres to all of you making a level headed vote. Yes, I'm a canuck.....
