It's kind of eerie reading this letter again, almost 8 years later, and reflecting on all that's happened since.
And really, it doesn't matter if you believe he really wrote it or not. Someone did.
If the Americans refuse to listen to our advice and the goodness, guidance and righteousness that we call them to, then be aware that you will lose
this Crusade Bush began, just like the other previous Crusades in which you were humiliated by the hands of the Mujahideen, fleeing to your home in
great silence and disgrace. If the Americans do not respond, then their fate will be that of the Soviets who fled from Afghanistan to deal with their
military defeat, political breakup, ideological downfall, and economic bankruptcy.
This paragraph in particular got me. I wonder how much if any got lost in translation, and how much attention anyone really paid to it, if any.
Here's the full text of the letter in case you're interested or have never seen it.
