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

You couldn't make this stuff up if we tried..
I give Schieffer at best another six months of employment.
"Schieffer said he wasn't sure whether bin Laden was consciously borrowing from Kerry"
Opposition loves company.
Schieffer has just entered early stages of Alzheimer's along with Mike Wallace.
Bob Schieffer actually reported the truth.
This is a first.
This is a shocking statement -- Schieffer telling the truth....what is happening at CBS?
I am surprised that Sheiffer would say this. Surely he thought he was off the record.
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.
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??
We can't believe the old coot told the truth BUMP!
Quite a coincidence that the audio tape was posted on Al-Jazeera on 1/19; these folks just love the 911 symbolism.
See gang, ole bob, the swine that called Reagan an "Acting President" aint really as stupid as he looks.
Guess he figures making up the news is perfectly okay but making up ratings.......
