Osama Bin Laden Tape Threatens U.S. States Not to Vote for Bush
The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) has translation and Islamist interpretation of the latest bin Laden tape.
The Islamist website Al-Qal'a explained what this sentence meant: "This message was a warning to every U.S. state separately. When he [Osama Bin Laden] said, 'Every state will be determining its own security, and will be responsible for its choice,' it means that any U.S. state that will choose to vote for the white thug Bush as president has chosen to fight us, and we will consider it our enemy, and any state that will vote against Bush has chosen to make peace with us, and we will not characterize it as an enemy. By this characterization, Sheikh Osama wants to drive a wedge in the American body, to weaken it, and he wants to divide the American people itself between enemies of Islam and the Muslims, and those who fight for us, so that he doesn't treat all American people as if they're the same. This letter will have great implications inside the American society, part of which are connected to the American elections, and part of which are connected to what will come after the elections."
I heard a conservative talk show host Friday (don't remember which) call the tape "Madrid without the bombs". I thought he was exaggerating, but it looks like he was right. It was a clear attempt to influence the election in a specific direction. Remember, it worked in Spain. Via LGF.
Osama Bin Laden doesn't want you to vote for Bush. Thanks for weighing in, Osama. Is there a better endorsement for Bush?

Neither New York nor D.C. nor Pennsylvania voted for Bush in 2000. All three were hit by a plane on 9/11 (admittedly, PA was not the intended target). So much for staying on Al Qaeda's good side.

New York and D.C. will vote for Kerry tomorrow. So they should feel safe, right? Don't count on it.

My choice is clear. Crap on Osama. Vote for Bush.
