There he is

Just so we’re clear, when I asked “Where is Osama” it was a rhetorical question.

Better people than I are talking about what this means. Aziz Poonawalla, Josh Marshall, and Laura Rozen. I’ll try to keep this list updated as I read more.

Essentially, OBL is alive and kicking, and we get the tape just before election day. Does that support the idea the OBL wants Kerry to win, or that Bush failed in trying to capture him? (I think one of these options is only possible if you don’t live in a reality-based world.)

Oh @*$#!, I just read excerpts of what he said.

“We never thought that the high commander of the U.S. armies would leave 50,000 of his citizens in both towers to face the horrors by themselves when they most needed him because it seemed to distract his attention from listening to the girl telling him about her goat butting,” he says, referring to Bush’s decision to wait more than seven minutes after being informed of the attacks before leaving an elementary room classroom in Florida where a student was reading a story called “The Pet Goat.”

The story, bin Laden intimated, “was more important than paying attention to airplanes hitting the towers, which gave us three times the time to execute the operation, thank God.”

One thought on “There he is

  1. You’re kidding, right? Using UBL’s words to criticize Bush? As if 7 minutes would have made a difference. Even a partisan dolt like Michael Moore didn’t go so far as to suggest the outcome would have been different had Bush raced to the “situation room.”
    The truth is that we were beaten badly to the punch on Sept 11. We haven’t been beaten since. Ask yourself if it’s merely coincidence that US civilians haven’t been successfully attacked since 9/11.
    I intend to vote for John Kerry because he’s not George Bush. However, I still have my doubts that Kerry will be able to keep the “blame America first and only” wing of the Democratic party in check.
