Osama obviously has seen Michael Moore's movie. Are they showing it in Pakistan? I heard they are showing it in Iran, but that the Iranians did not think much of it.
Never heard of him (Brett Blair).
Hmmmmm member since 8-12-2004 and you make a comment like that?
As my grandpa used to say, "You know how dumb the average guy is? Well half of 'em are dumber than THAT!"
Seriously, though, I am very skeptical that this tape is going to swing a committed voter one way or the other. Those whose primary issue is "Who's going to protect me best?" have made their choice: Bush (smarter than average) or sKerry (all those other guys my grandpa talked about).
could this be a fake tape??? does anyone know if this could be made up by some "geek" ??
Kerry talking points, yes, and also wishful thinking. No doubt he hoped to kill our President with one of those planes--perhaps the one that went down in PA.
Iranian public didn't. What about their psyops intel folk?
A lot of them are, and don't call me Shirley. That's my uncle.....
I wrote Brett Bair, should be Baier but either way. The tape has been confirmed by the intelligence community a little while ago.
bin Laden is just one of those foreign leaders that Kerry has been bragging about for 6 months.
***Looks Like bin laden is endorsing Kerry***
EXACTLY! If Bin Laden doesn't want Bush, then he wants Kerry. Obviously, he believes Kerry would be more sympathetic to having Americans blown to bits.
These tapes never mention anything recent, their old footage, no news here, he's dead folks
I'm John Kerry, and I endorse this message.
Countdown for how long before we hear the dems blame Karl Rove for setting this up to make Kerry look bad?
You are, without doubt, the most pessimistic, negative poster on this forum.
You seem not to know that terrorism works FOR Bush, and against Kerry.
All Kerry can say is "See, we haven't gotten bin Laden." Bush can point out that bin Laden is essentially using Kerry talking points.
Then, Bush can ask this question: "Who do you think bin Laden wants in the White House for the next four years?"
im suprised osama didnt have the normal disclaimer.....
"this message has been approved by john kerry"
You are worried about bin Laden. For goodness sakes we have a major war going on around the world and you are worried about one man, when we have already killed thousands of his followers. Yes, go ahead and elect John Kerry and let the United Nations fight the war on terror. Given three more years with thinking like yours and you won't have a worry in the world. You won't have a head either!! A vote for John Kerry is a vote for your own doom.
Americans wake up to Monday morning news reporting that Usama bin Laden has been captured by U.S. and coalition forces.
The news couldn't get much better than that before the election.
I'm John Kerry, and I approved this message!
I can't get into the mind of a dumb kerry voter so who knows what they're thinking. So this helps Bush since it's showing Americans he's still there...and wants to harm us.
I agree. Something about the goat comment doesn't ring true...
I can't believe you guys think this is a plus for Kerry. The biggest terrorist in the world comes out for Kerry and you think that will help him? This puts it in the bag for Bush, make no mistake. Americans will not take a threat lying down and they will not vote the idiot into the white house. Remember how they responded on Sept 12? They will do the same now.
"Your security is not in the hands of (Democratic candidate John) Kerry or Bush or al-Qaida. Your security is in your own hands," bin Laden said.Sounds like he's seen Fahrenheit 911 anyway.
"To the U.S. people, my talk is to you about the best way to avoid another disaster," he said. "I tell you: security is an important element of human life and free people do not give up their security."
"If Bush says we hate freedom, let him tell us why we didn't attack Sweden, for example. It is known that those who hate freedom do not have dignified souls, like those of the 19 blessed ones," he said, referring to the 19 hijackers.
"We fought you because we are free .. and want to regain freedom for our nation. As you undermine our security we undermine yours."
The image of bin Laden reading a statement was dramatically different from the few other videos of the al-Qaida leader that have emerged since the Sept. 11 attacks.
In the last videotape, issued Sept. 10, 2003, bin Laden is seen walking through rocky terrain with his top deputy Ayman al-Zawahri, both carrying automatic rifles. In a taped message issued at the same time, bin Laden praises the "great damage to the enemy" on Sept. 11 and mentions five hijackers by name.
He's not dead. He mentions John Kerry as a presidential candidate in this tape.
"Well, Osama has come out with his October surprise. Kerry and the media have come out with their October surprise with the explosives lost. WHERE THE HELL IS BUSH'S OCTOBER SURPRISE? WHAT ARE WE WAITING FOR?"
October surprises are tricks by people who can't win on their own merit.
Good blog. But Michael Moore is so stupid he is probably proud that OBL's statement mirrors his movie. By the way, love your show, I listen quite often.
Yeah, isn't it great?
This will kill Kerry's campaign.
It sounds to me that although he likes Bush less than Kerry, he doesn't like either one of them at all. He sounds like one of my neighbors.
Could it be?
He's coming out for Nader!!!!
I was out; is this good or bad for Bush?
Good if President Bush continues to ask "Do we fight them there or do we fight them here?"
"He also accused President Bush of "misleading" the American people three years since the 2001 suicide airline hijackings that hit the World Trade Center towers and the Pentagon."
--John Kerry, no wait Bin Laden
the honest answer - who knows?
in a way, I'm glad this tape was released. On Tuesday, we'll find out what this country is made of. This tape sticks it into our face, let's see what Americans are really made of. We may not like the result, but at least we'll know, it will be unequivocal.
THis guy is a body double. I do not believe it.
Sweden is definitely on the list, and they know it.
I don't see how Kerry spins this, unless he says "See, bin Laden is still out there threatening America. I would have him by now."
Nobody buys that, but that's all he's got.
Ha-Ha! That's it! OBL is a Naderite! I love it.
"Let's wait to see if it's really recent; Newpaper headlines, if he mentions very recent events, if it's his voice, etc."
The speaker in the video mentions Bush reading to the kids after the planes hit. That information didn't come out until the Michael Moore film, so the video has to be recent. The guy sure looks like Osama. Maybe it's just a good costume/makeup job, but the CIA doesn't think so.
Given the evidence, I think it's Osama, and recent.
this most certainly can not be a spinning game for the President of the United States. Bush is at a distinct disadvantage here................UNLESS he speaks directly to the American people from the Oval Office. I doubt he will do this, not wanting to give bin Laden more prominence, but it would certainly make me feel better
Sweden's just further down because they're a little softer. If Islamanazis knocked us down, the rest of the world would soon follow.
Pro-American? Yes. So sue me.
If the Kerry campaign tries to spin this in any way, they're going to get bit bad. Having said that, I think it's true of the Bush campaign, too.
I'm talking the horse race here, please understand, not right and wrong.
