Bob Schieffer: Osama bin Laden Used John Kerry's Talking Points

9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden may have borrowed some of Sen. John Kerry's talking points for the audiotaped message he released on Thursday - veteran CBS newsman Bob Schieffer said Saturday.

Asked whether bin Laden had expressed "almost the same" sentiments that Kerry did during an appearance on Schieffer's "Face the Nation" broadcast in December, the CBS anchorman told WABC Radio's Mark Simone: "Well, he did. That's exactly right."

Back then, Kerry complained to Schieffer: "There is no reason that young American soldiers need to be going into the homes of Iraqis in the dead of night, terrorizing kids."

In his message, bin Laden also complained that the U.S. was terrorizing Iraqi innocents, saying that "the oppressive measures adopted by the U.S. Army and its agents" show "there is no difference between this criminality and Saddam's criminality, as it has reached the degree of raping women and taking them as hostages instead of their husbands."

Schieffer said he wasn't sure whether bin Laden was consciously borrowing from Kerry

Schieffer has just entered early stages of Alzheimer's along with Mike Wallace.

I am surprised that Sheiffer would say this. Surely he thought he was off the record.

The FACT that Democrats and OBL, Zawahiri, Zarqawi and numerous other ENEMIES of the United States USE the same language is defaming our PRESIDENT, spout the same lies about our Military and generally say whatever the Democrats say to suborn our defeat is a huge story that should be all over the MSM and spread throughout the nation.

Is there any doubt that if the roles of the Democrats and Republicans were reversed that it would NOT be so??

But we already knew that.

It is interesting to hear that from the Legacy-Media.

I thought it sounded a bit familiar when bin Laden start talking about purchasing low-cost prescription drugs from Canada.

Yes, all we had to do was listen to the tape translations. OBL is just playing the same cards that General Giap (sp?) in Viet Nam did during the VN war...with lots of help then and now, from the anti-American lefitists.

It would be funny is it wasn't so serious. Bin laden will probably talk about the plantation in his next video and praise Murtha as a fine military leader.

Does this constitute the evidence needed to have Sen. Kerry wiretapped??

Quite a coincidence that the audio tape was posted on Al-Jazeera on 1/19; these folks just love the 911 symbolism.

Scheiffer also suggested that there might be men hiding behind curtains making up the ratings for the news programs.

Guess he figures making up the news is perfectly okay but making up ratings.......

Scheiffer did not think he was off the record.

Mark Simone is a talk show host on Saturday mornings on WABC radio and had Scheiffer as his guest this morning.

Did Osama mention a "Global Test" or "Apologizing for the War on Terror"?

Maybe he thought his mike was off or they were at commercial. I'm sure he'll be retracting his statement, or do the old, "I was misquoted" excuse.

This needs to be pounded into the American people at every opportunity by our side. Every time that a new OBL tape comes out, we need to remind the American people who had (at least) THREE verified opportunities to get him, but did not. (And his name is not Bush.)
