Transcript of bin Laden statement
You American people, my speech to you is the best way to avoid another conflict about the war and its reasons and results. I am telling you security
is an important pillar of human life. And free people don't let go of their security, contrary to Bush's claims that we hate freedom. He should tell
us why we didn't hit Sweden for instance. It's known that those who hate freedom don't have dignified souls like the 19 who were blessed. But we
fought you because we are free people, we don't sleep on our oppression. We want to regain the freedom of our Muslim nation as you spill our
security, we spill your security.
I am so surprised by you. Although we are in the fourth year after the events of Sept. 11, Bush is still practicing distortion and misleading on you,
and obscuring the main reasons and, therefore, the reasons are still existing to repeat what happened before. I will tell you the reasons behind these
I will be honest with you on the moment when the decision was taken to understand. We never thought of hitting the towers. But after we were so fed
up, and we saw the oppression of the American Israeli coalition on our people in Palestine and Lebanon, it came to my mind, and the incidents that
really touched me directly goes back to 1982 and the following incidents. When the U.S. permitted the Israelis to invade Lebanon with the assistance
of the 6th fleet. In these hard moments, it occurred to me so many meanings I can't explain, but it resulted in a general feeling of rejecting
oppression and gave me a hard determination to punish the oppressors. While I was looking at the destroyed towers in Lebanon, it came to my mind to
punish the oppressor the same way and destroy towers in the U.S. to get a taste of what they tasted, and quit killing our children and women.
We didn't find difficulty dealing with Bush and his administration due to the similarity of his regime and the regimes in our countries. Which half
of them are ruled by military and the other half by sons of kings and presidents and our experience with them is long. Both parties are arrogant and
stubborn and the greediness and taking money without right and that similarity appeared during the visits of Bush to the region while people from our
side were impressed by the U.S. and hoped that these visits would influence our countries. Here he is being influenced by these regimes, royal and
military. And was feeling jealous they were staying for decades in power stealing the nations' finances without anybody overseeing them. So he
transferred the oppression of freedom and tyranny to his son, and they call it the Patriot Law to fight terrorism. He was bright in putting his sons
as governors in states, and he didn't forget to transfer his experience from the rulers of our region to Florida to falsify elections to benefit from
it in critical times.
We agreed with Mohamed Atta, God bless him, to execute the whole operation in 20 minutes. Before Bush and his administration would pay attention and
we never thought that the high commander of the U.S. armies would leave 50 thousand of his citizens in both towers to face the horrors by themselves
when they most needed him, because it seemed to distract his attention from listening to the girl telling him about her goat butting was more
important than paying attention to airplanes butting the towers which gave us three times the time to execute the operation thank God.
Your security is not in the hands of Kerry or Bush or al-Qaida. Your security is in your hands. Each state that doesn't mess with our security has
automatically secured their security.
