DUBAI (Reuters) Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden demanded that European nations withdraw their troops from Afghanistan in a new audio tape aired on Friday, saying they were sacrificing men and money in an unjust U.S.-led war.
"We are not demanding anything unjust. It is just for you to end injustice and withdraw your soldiers (from Afghanistan)," he said in the tape, released on the Internet with a background picture of bin Laden and with German and English subtitles.
"One of the greatest injustices is to kill people unjustly, and this is exactly what your governments and soldiers are committing under the cover of the NATO alliance in Afghanistan," bin Laden said in the recording, entitled "A message to the people of Europe."

Given the latest reports about the US assessment of Afghanistan, it sounds like he has Obama's attention.

Timed just right when the Amateur is thinking about withdrawing troops. He can claim victory afterward.

(Spay and neuter your liberals)
BinLaden is betting the President Obama will ultimately try to reduce our presence in Afghanistan, or waffle about it to the point where our allies lose what little confidence they have left and start withdrawing their troops.
Then Bin Laden can claim credit when it happens, thus boosting his flagging reputation in the Muslim terrorist population, and their supporters/enablers.

The easiest way to win a war is to sap your enemy's will to fight. If that is accomplished by this rhetoric, bin Laden will have almost won back Afghanistan. If 0zero capitulates, too, then we are right back to September 10, 2001.
