New Al Qaeda Tape?

Developing, as the media like to say. It seems that Al Jazeera has received a new tape from Osama bin Laden, supposedly explaining why he killed thousands of people on 9/11/04 and what the repercussions are. No word yet as to whether Osama will make an endorsement in the U.S. presidential campaign. Stay tuned. More will be added as it becomes available. (Geez, I feel like a bloody journalist!)

Here's some more:

Bin Laden video: Americans' security does not depend on the president they elect, but on U.S. policy. "Your security is not in the hands of Kerry or Bush or al Qaeda." Details soon

Bin Laden said that he expected the 9/11 attacks to last only twenty minutes and that the intention was not to bring the towers down. He also pointed out that Bush spent minutes reading a children's book while the attacks were happening. This could be interpreted as an attack on Bush. But then he said that thing in the above quote; that it's U.S. policy that matters, not the person selected. So bin Laden is another undecided voter!

Why do we even care about what he is saying? He is a murderer and doesn't deserve to be listened to. I better bang my head against a wall for writing about him.
