Bin Laden is popping up now because he knows he is just a whack a mole and irrelevent to the world except for his running and hiding like the rat he is waiting for his 73 virgins. The real leaders of Islam will emerge after the scum like Bin Laden is scraped off the pavement like dog excrement. Even cowardly dogs come to eat but Bin Laden gets room service from the Pakistanis. He is afraid of Obama who makes him even more irrelevent. He is not a warrior like the fools he gives the orders to. He is Joe couch potato.

It is better to Ignore the man and his remarks. If we ignore him, do not let it out he has made tapes available with their apparent bull for the entire world to see, it just might get him angry enough to get flushed out of his cave hole in those mountains. Then bang, it is all over for him. We will not miss.

David Ray Griffin's new book,
OSAMA BIN LADEN: DEAD OR ALIVE?
http://www.amazon.com/Osama-Bin-Laden-Dead-Al...

(review by Tod Fletcher)

OSAMA BIN LADEN: DEAD OR ALIVE? by David Ray Griffin is a crucially important and timely examination of the whole range of evidence bearing on the question, is Osama bin Laden still alive? The importance of this question for the present comes from the fact that the United States under its new president is escalating its offensive in Afghanistan and expanding the war into Pakistan, and has claimed that the "hunt for bin Laden" is one of its principal motivations for doing so. Either explicitly or implicitly, the US government and major media outlets such as the New York Times and Washington Post continue to assert that bin Laden is alive, hiding in the tribal territories on the "AfPak" border, posing an undiminished threat to US security.

In his gripping new book, Griffin strikes at the root of this pretext for war by closely examining all the evidence that has come out since September 11, 2001, either indicating that bin Laden is still alive or that he is in fact dead. His conclusion is that bin Laden is certainly dead, and that in all likelihood he died in very late 2001. Griffin shows that many US experts in counterterrorism and counterinsurgency came to this very same conclusion long ago, but their views, which do not support the continuation of what President Obama, borrowing the term from Dick Cheney, calls "the long war," have received very little media attention. Were they to do so, one of the main props for the war regime would be undermined.

In Chapter 1, "Evidence that Osama bin Laden is Dead", Griffin surveys in detail the many different indications published in the major media in late 2001 and early 2002 that bin Laden had been very ill and had died. These included a December, 2001 video in which he appeared to be at death's door (as admitted by a Bush administration spokesperson), analyses by medical experts of the grave state of his health, the sudden and total cessation in December, 2001 of any surveillance intercepts of communications from him, and even reports of his funeral. In this early period, various high-level officials in the US and Pakistani governments, including Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and President Pervez Musharraf, speculated that he was dead. By mid-2002 many experts had concluded that he was dead, including FBI counterterrorism official Dale Watson, President Hamid Karzai of Afghanistan, and Israeli intelligence officials. The conviction that he died in 2001 is held today by former intelligence operatives Robert Baer and Angelo Codevilla.

In Chapter 2, "Two Fake bin Laden Videos in 2001?", Griffin shows that two videos which purportedly showed bin Laden taking credit for the attacks of 9/11 and thus established his guilt for them, were not only very conveniently timed for the Bush and Blair administrations' legislative and military agendas, but also were highly suspect for other reasons. One of them was never actually released, but simply claimed by the Blair government. The other showed a bin Laden who did not physically resemble the genuine bin Laden of earlier videos, in which he in fact denied responsibility for the 9/11 attacks. Griffin presents strong arguments that both claimed videos were faked, suggests likely motivations behind such a risky undertaking, and cites the opinions of experts (including the FBI) who came to this conclusion long ago.

There is no way Osama is afraid of Obama.

And why would Osama be afraid of Obama's muslim outreach? The mainstream media went out of their way to say that Obama was NOT muslim.

So is he or isn't he muslim?

Anybody with a brain can see Obama is not a strong leader. His only proven skill is to read teleprompters. Kim in North Korea gets it, he has no fear of Obama or the UN. The nutcase in Iran also can tell, given his ramp up of his nuclear program.

China is our biggest creditor. They have the biggest army and air force in the world. They aren't afraid of Obama.

I pray nothing happens to us, but with these nutcases seeing the same do-nothing foreign policies that Clinton had, they will attack. They attacked over and over again with Clinton in office, with no fear of retribution.

I hope I'm wrong, but we'll see.

At least Bush took out Hussein, per UN Resolution 1441. That'd be Saddam, not Barack, in case you haven't been following.

What'd you take out? Oh yeah, you reached behind yourself with a greased hand and pulled out a prize. Well, at least you're not going hungry.

I am no expert in terrorism, but Osama was at war with the US long before George W Bush was in the White House. In the 1990's during Clinton's administration he was quite active and was not dealt with. Don't forget that September 11 was on track to occur long before George Bush was in the White House.

I don't agree with the analysis. Whenever one of these recordings came out while George W Bush was President, it was always doom and gloom from the analysts and we were told we should expect an attack. However, nothing ever happened in the US. Say what you want, but there were no terrorism attacks by Al Qaida in the US after September 11.

Isn't it amazing how no matter who is in office, or what their policy is, they are in some way offending the Muslim world according to al-Qaeda?
I agree with the majority of those who say that the Muslim world as a whole should be loudly and repeatedly denouncing al-Qaeda and all other Islamic extremist groups.
I also agree with the premise that al-Qaeda is indeed worried at this point in time; the Pakistanis are now "actively" fighting religious extremists. Granted it's mainly because the Taliban and their ideology have spilled over the borders of Afghanistan and the Pakistanis suddenly don't like finding them in their own backyards. Yet this is encouraging; they didn't seem to be making much of an effort before.

They oppose America for simply one reason and one reason only.

America represents the successful 'Christian West' who is an eternal rival of Islam.

America - no matter what you do or kiss their ass, they will never like you.

Some of them have tolerated you for so long because they need your gas-money for their lavish worldly lifestyles.

This so-called "Bin Laden's tape" could have been written by Robert Gibbs himself. It's just a rehash of the same old stuff that Bin Laden has been saying for years. It means absolutely nothing.

Al-Qaeda is a CIA asset. It was a "Blue Team" asset in Chechnya and Bosnia. Now that we need an "enemy" to justify wars of aggression abroad and the imposition of police-state legislation at home, al-Qaeda is a "Red Team" asset. We train them and pay the bills through our proxy "allies" (i.e., Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, etc.)

You've got part of it. But police-state legislation does not come close to what the endgame is.

Does Osama know that all television signals are converting to digital very soon. He better get his converter box. I heard he loves Seinfeld re-runs.
