Move over Oprah! Welcome to the Osama Bin Laden Book Club. In his most recent video message, Bin Laden extols the works of the leftist author Noam Chomsky and he also directs Americans to read the book Imperial Hubris written by former CIA analyst and Bush critic Michael Scheuer. Scheuer places the blame for the turmoil in Iraq and the Middle East squarely on Bush, and Chomsky wrote of 9/11, "As atrocities go it doesn't rank very high." Indeed for Chomsky the only significance of 9/11 was that usually it is America that is responsible for mass atrocities while "for the first time the guns have been directed the other way. That is dramatic change." Chomsky, like Bin Laden, takes the view that we had it coming.
Bin Laden has been extolling the works of left-wing pundits for a few years now. In his 2004 message, delivered right before the presidential election, Bin Laden implored Americans to read the works of leftist Robert Fisk to get an "unbiased" view of why America was to blame for Muslim woes. A prolific author and far-left writer for the London Independent, Fisk is the British equivalent of Chomsky: anti-Americanism runs in his veins. And in January 2006 Bin Laden championed the book Rogue State written by the liberal writer William Blum, who writes for The Progressive and other leftist publications. Blum has called on America to withdraw from the Middle East and "give an apology to all the widows and orphans and those who were tortured" by American troops.

leftists again giving terrorists the tools they need for their recruiting efforts and propaganda
Bin Laden? Or Al Gore with a turban and a beard?
Osama’s tracing of 9/11 back to the disappropriation of Native American land is straight out of Chomsky. His talk about Israel and the holocaust straight out of Ahmadinejad. I suspect his Iranian imprisonment quarters have some lefty American books and tv access only to Iranian channels. That stuff doesn’t sound like Gadahn.
Does anyone have a link to a full transcription?
Sorry, I meant a transcript of his recent appearance, a vew days ago.
Sorry—that’s what I thought it was. My bad.
We’ve noticed before that jihad is shot through with Marxist assumptions. This is what you get when you give anyone a modern education, even muslim fanatics.
