Flashback to Nov. 1, 2004..."We are continuing this policy in bleeding America to the point of bankruptcy. Allah willing, and nothing is too great
for Allah," bin Laden said in the transcript.
"Every dollar of al Qaeda defeated a million dollars, by the permission of Allah, besides the loss of a huge number of jobs," he said. "As for the
economic deficit, it has reached record astronomical numbers estimated to total more than a trillion dollars.
"And it all shows that the real loser is you," he said. "It is the American people and their economy."
As for President Bush's Iraq policy, Bin Laden said, "the darkness of black gold blurred his vision and insight, and he gave priority to private
interests over the public interests of America."

I can remember when the media was almost jokingly reporting that al Qaeda was shifting it's focus to encourage the fall of the U.S. economy. It is
clear to me that many economists around the world and even a guy who is apparently hiding in caves could see that a financial crisis was on the way,
with U.S. economy's private banking fundamentals breaking down.
If our leaders knew our enemies were counting on the economy to fail, wouldn't have made sense to implement policy that would prevent this? Did we
not learn anything from the collapse of ENRON? I am sick of the "we didn't connect the dots" excuses being fed to us. Forgive me for typing angry
but is anyone else upset that our government keeps giving us the same excuses?
Strangely enough, the media reported on the Russian economist who said the U.S. would be broken up in a few years in the same way they laughed off bin
Laden. Sorry, putting my head back in the sand now.
