Delta, whether you agree with Alex Jones or not, he predicted the event before hand, see below!
So did the news media and newspapers he points out that he used as a reference about a possible terrorist attack. I guess everybody has foresight eh? Remember that Bush had a warning that something was coming while he was in Crawford, TX back in August 6, 2001.
Bin Ladin Determined to Strike in US
Clandestine, foreign government, and media reports indicate Bin Ladin since 1997 has wanted to conduct terrorist attacks in the U.S. Bin Ladin implied in US television interviews in 1997 and 1998 that his followers would follow the example of World Trade Center bomber Ramzi Yousef and "bring the fighting to America."
After US missile strikes on his base in Afghanistan in 1998, Bin Ladin told followers he wanted to retaliate in Washington, according to xxxxxxxxxxx service.
An Egyptian Islamic Jihad (EIJ) operative told an xxxxxxxxxx service at the same time that Bin Ladin was planning to exploit the operative's access to the US to mount a terrorist strike.
The millennium plotting in Canada in 1999 may have been part of Bin Ladin's first serious attempt to implement a terrorist strike in the US. Convicted plotter Ahmed Ressam has told the FBI that he conceived the idea to attack Los Angeles International Airport himself, but that Bin Ladin lieutenant Abu Zubaydah encouraged him and helped facilitate the operation. Ressam also said that in 1998 Abu Zubaydah was planning his own US attack.
Ressam says Bin Ladin was aware of the Los Angeles operation.
Although Bin Ladin has not succeeded, his attacks against the US Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998 demonstrate that he prepares operations years in advance and is not deterred by setbacks. Bin Ladin associates surveilled our Embassies in Nairobi and Dar es Salaam as early as 1993, and some members of the Nairobi cell planning the bombings were arrested and deported in 1997.
Al-Qa'ida members - including some who are US citizens - have resided in or traveled to the US for years, and the group apparently maintains a support structure that could aid attacks. Two al-Qa'ida members found guilty in the conspiracy to bomb our Embassies in East Africa were US citizens, and a senior EIJ member lived in California in the mid-1990s.
Pakistan Taleban vow more violence (January of this year)
With a black-dyed beard, 34-year-old Baitullah greeted us in a big room with several of his armed men beside him. We sat on a new colourful quilt spread on the ground.
Baitullah seemed a man with only jihad (holy war) on his mind. During the interview he quoted several verses from the Koran to defend his stance that foreign forces must be evicted from Islamic countries.

And Agent Violet, I also value your contribution and views...but this is too much for me to take. I cannot believe you would refer to him as honorable. Clearly you are an intelligent person...how can you be so blind?

I keep looking for all of the Osama Bin Laden photos I can find. Despite having grey in his beard for many years, this appears to be the first time he has colored it.

You haven't dated the photos. I have seen many more, and over the years (and early on- since 1998 to be exact) his beard clearly has had substantial gray in it. Why change that now?

Well both are related.
In other words, as far as I can tell, he has not previously dyed his beard- despite the fact the 'need' was present for MANY years. So, I doubt it was a vanity thing. So, why now?

My warning to Mr. Bin Laden. Dear sir, Should you find it necessary to attack the United States Of America heed this warning. America can muster the best and the brightest the toughest and the meanest men you will ever see. What are you going to do when you have 50 million American killing machines down on you? You fight for your Islamic ways however if you attack us again Islam is dead, We will nuke your beloved religious sites, Lay waste to every Arab city that harbors your kind and kill every dream you have ever had. Attack us again sir and you will be to blame for this not anyone else, Just you. So as you sleep tonight think about what I have said just before you bring the world down on your head.
Convert to Islam? No sir, I will send you straight to hell.

I always thought there was much value in a lot of Chomsky's work,
I wonder how people will react to him and his work now that he has received praise from Bin Laden.
