Boortz On Bin Laden Tape
Because Boortz said it so well, I'm just going to post his statement here, in full.
BIN LADEN IS BACK
Yesterday's release of an audiotape supposedly from Osama Bin Laden was quite the media event. The world's head Islamic terrorist and most wanted man had some interesting things to say. Interestingly, though, bin Laden's script could easily been written by today's leading Democrats. Let's explore the finer points, shall we?
Offering a truce with the U.S. military, Bin Laden said "Our situation is getting better and better and your situation is getting worse and worse." Sounds like Cindy Sheehan or Nancy Pelosi, doesn't it? It's not true, of course. If it were, bin Laden wouldn't be talking truce. Then Osama commented on polls. "But I wanted to talk to you because of the lies that have been given to you by your President Bush when he commented on the results of the opinion polls in your country that showed the majority was for the pull out of U.S. forces in Iraq." Bin Laden went on to say Bush should follow those polls.
If indeed the voice on the tape is Bin Laden's, then that proves a point that's been being made for a long time. The Islamic terrorists we're fighting in the War On Terror know that the PR war is as important as the shooting and bombing war. When the mainstream media in the United States reports only bad news from Iraq and suppress the good, they are doing the work of Al-Qaeda, plain and simple. Bin Laden smiles.
The weird beard's message also, of course, contained the threat of future terrorist attacks: "The reason why we didn't have any such an operation in the United States is not because of security difficulties; the operation will take place and you will see such operations by the grace of God and by the will of God." Now understand the significance of this. Osama Bin Laden, who slaughtered 3,000 innocent people on September 11, 2001, has threatened to attack again. Will people take it seriously? Probably not. That's too bad...because the next attack could be much, much worse. Besides, more Americans can tell you who won the Golden Globes earlier this week than can tell you what was in Osama's latest rant.
And finally, Osama concluded with a statement that could have easily been faxed over from the Democratic National Committee: "So you see how Bush was misleading people. The opinion polls are for the pull out and it's important that opinion polls say the people didn't want to fight the Muslims in their land and they didn't want the Muslims to fight them in their land." At least now we know where the left is getting their talking points.
Maybe this will wake people up. We are engaged in a struggle for the survival of our American way of life...the struggle against Islamic terrorism. The sooner people realize the threat remains, the better. Sadly, more people care about celebrities, athletes and American Idol than they do about the war we're fighting.
Which suits Al-Qaeda just fine.
