Al-Jazeera Airs Videotape by Bin Laden
Oct 29, 4:16 PM (ET)
CAIRO, Egypt (AP) - The Arab television station Al-Jazeera aired a video of Osama bin Laden on Friday directly admitting for the first time that he carried out the Sept. 11 attacks and promising to outline "the best way to avoid another Manhattan."
It was the first footage of the al-Qaida leader to surface in more than a year. The video showed bin Laden in traditional white robes, a turban and a cloak reading from papers and standing in front of a plain, brown cloth background.
"We decided to destroy towers in America," bin Laden said.
He said the attack was carried out because "we are a free people ... and we want to regain the freedom of our nation."
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.
Voting for Kerry (as he wants) is a vote for Bin Laden.
Surely Americans aren't that stupid.
Does this mean that the average Arab on the street can finally stop blaming the Mossad?
im suprised osama didnt have the normal disclaimer.....
"this message has been approved by john kerry"
