Al Jazeera aired a brand new video of Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden Friday afternoon. bin Laden insinuated his terror group was responsible for the 9-11 attacks and heavily criticized George Bush. He also suggested new attacks were possible by saying "...the reasons are still there to repeat what happened."
 

"We had agreed with the overall commander Mohammed Atta, may God rest his soul, to carry out all operations in 20 minutes before Bush and his administration take notice," bin Laden said in the video. "This had given us three times the time needed to carry out the operations. Thanks be to God."



Usama bin Ladin appeared on Aljazeera television on Friday accusing US President George W. Bush of deceiving the American people.

In an address just days ahead of the US presidential election, bin Ladin also said the US administration resembled "corrupt" Arab governments.

He accused Bush of reacting slowly to the September 11 attacks, saying: "I never thought that the supreme leader would leave 50,000 of his people in the two towers to face the terrifying events alone at the time they were in need for him."

Excerpts of tape:



"O American people, my talk to you is about the best way to avoid another Manhattan, about the war, its causes and results...

"Security is an important pillar of human life. Free people do not relinquish their security. This is contrary to Bush's claim that we hate freedom...

"Let him tell us why we did not strike Sweden, for example. It is known that those who hate freedom do not have proud souls, like the souls of the 19 people, may God have mercy on them...

"We fought you because we are free and do not accept injustice. We want to restore freedom to our nation. Just as you waste our security, we will waste your security...

Bin Laden said President Bush was still practising "distortion and deception" four years after the 11 September, adding: "The motives still exist for repeating what happened."

Bin Laden added that the idea of striking the towers in New York occurred to him when "we saw the injustice of the US-Israeli alliance against our people in Palestine and Lebanon", when, in 1982 "the United States gave permission to the Israelis to invade Lebanon" with, he alleged, the help of the US Sixth Fleet.

He said that these events had generated a "strong determination to punish the unjust ones".

According to Reuters, in the tape Osama Bin Laden will be addressing the American people directly, explaining the "reasons behind the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks and their repercussions."

Yup, if this tape is legit I am going to have to start worrying some.

Well now, this seams a bit odd... Why would he want to tell us why now... Smelling a bit fishy to me.

So...the question is if this is the long-awaited "trigger video" that will start the assassination of leaders in various western countries, prefaced by assassinations in Saudi and Yemen.

This could be it.

If he can somehow prove that he's alive like talking about recent terrorist events or the missing Iraq weapons something new then I'd be scared. If he is just going to go on about a new terror attack or 9/11 then I would not be that worried since that could be old.

However I do want to hear what he has to say about 9/11 and if it'll spark any new conspiracy business.

Well, Yes and No. If it is a voiceover , with Pictures with subtitles, I would think that it may have been from an older tape, Whether or not he points to things in the last 2-3 weeks, Whether he mentions the election in the US, as Next week or in a couple of days will tell if it was recorded recently.

Hrm, judging by the way we have acted as a whole for the past four years we don't much care about reasons for anything. I doub't there will be any real revelations into his mind or wtf is going on out there, just the usual jihad drivel and how the west must be brought to its knees because he has a wild hair up his butt and seems to be recieving messages from his god not unlike Frau Bush is.

Wouldn't our media hold off on airing this until the authorities have a chance to review this first? If I understand correctly, Al-Jazeera is releasing this at 4PM EST and our media is going to immediately follow? I find that a bit irresponsible.

[EDIT]: Pursuant to quote below from FoxNews it appears the authorities have already reviewed this tape.

Cnn said they will play it as soon as they figure it out or something like that they only showed like one frame it was osama standing at a podium

CNN already has it, but they won't air it until experts verify. That's responsible journalism.


Fox is hyping tabloid as ususal. Cavuto is all over it. Live feed from the cave to come.

Trick beat me to this but I figured I'd add my planned quote anyway:

Fox News



Multiple sources told FOX News that the 18-minute videotape is authentic and said its release was timed to coincide with Tuesday's presidential elections. Bin Laden makes reference to recent conflicts in Iraq and addresses the American people directly, sources said.

U.S. officials said the tape appears to have been made recently. Bin Laden is speaking from a lectern and he talks about threats to the United States and he says that President Bush will not protect the American people

1 week ago, ABC got the Assam al Amiriki tape in Pakistan. Today UBL speaks. 4 days from now we vote. There is alot bunching up right here. Even if this isn't new tape, the release now is meant to be alarming.
