Al-Qaida chief Osama bin Laden called on Pakistanis to rebel against President Pervez Musharraf in a new recording released on Thursday, saying his
military’s siege of a militant mosque stronghold this year makes him an infidel.
The storming of the Red Mosque in Islamabad in July “demonstrated Musharraf’s insistence on continuing his loyalty, submissiveness and aid to
America against the Muslims ... and makes armed rebellion against him and removing him obligatory,” bin Laden said in the message.
“So when the capability is there, it is obligatory to rebel against the apostate ruler, as is the case now,” he said, according to a transcript
released by Laura Mansfield, a U.S. terrorism expert who monitors militant message traffic.
The question is, will OBL's calling get any attention from the loonies in Pakistan? Thankfully, I don't think he has much influence in the region
