BARACK Obama says al-Qaeda and Osama bin Laden remain the "No.1 one threat" to US security, after a new voice recording emerged from the terror group's leader.
The recording warned the President-elect of new fronts in bin Laden's self-styled holy war against Western interests.
Mr Obama said: "Bin Laden and al-Qaeda are our No.1 threat when it comes to American security.
"Things are going to get tougher in Afghanistan before they get better," he said, adding: "Pakistan's position on Afghanistan is going to affect our ability to succeed."
Mr Obama has vowed to boost development in Afghanistan and shift the focus of the war on terror from Baghdad to Kabul as he winds down the war in Iraq.

I fear that is one wish that is not going to be answered. Anyone that still believes that politics is any more than a one trick pony is setting themselves up for disappointment. The shadow government is not in the shadows anymore and they are so sure of themselves and have such distain for us that they don’t even bother to try to hide from us anymore. The only reason they continue the pretense is to reduce the annoyance factor. Obama was chosen by TPTB and he will dance to whatever tune they play. I just wish they would come up with a different tune this one is getting real old. Just like you could depend on the cavalry appearing over the ridge just in the nick of time you can bet on them pulling out the old Osama Bin Laden twist every time they need an excuse to do something they don't want us to know about. The still fear that we will wake up in time to stop the madness so they keep us sedated. Good Old Osama to the rescue one more time.
The French newspaper l'Est Republicain printed what it described as a confidential document from the French foreign intelligence service DGSE citing an uncorroborated report from Saudi secret services that bin Laden died of typhoid last month.
A U.S. official told FOX News that he had seen no evidence to suggest the Al Qaeda leader was dead. "Don't believe it," he said. "I would not give credence to that report."
Time magazine reported Saturday that bin Laden contracted a "serious water-borne disease" and may already be dead. The article cited an anonymous Saudi source who said Saudi officials have not received concrete evidence of bin Laden's death.
French President Jacques Chirac said the information is "in no way whatsoever confirmed."
Chirac said he was "a bit surprised" at the leak and has asked Defense Minister Michele Alliot-Marie to investigate how a document from a French foreign intelligence service was published in the French press.

Obama Bin Lyin about changing anything important.

This does not surprise me one bit. Some actually believed he represented "change," thinking I was merely cynical when I said it did not matter what party was voted in, that they all were puppets for the secret government.
And here, starkly, stands evidence that the "change" will be superficial, at best.
