Bin Laden Warns Europe To Stop Aiding U.S.
In Audiotape, Al Qaeda Chief Calls On Europeans To Stop Helping America In Afghanistan

CAIRO, Egypt, Nov. 29, 2007

(AP) Al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden called on the Europeans to stop helping the United States in the war in Afghanistan, saying America is "ebbing" in excerpts of a new audiotape aired Thursday on Al-Jazeera television.

Bin Laden said he was the "only one responsible" for the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on New York and Washington, arguing that it was unjust for the Americans to have invaded Afghanistan.

"The events of Manhattan were retaliation against the American-Israeli alliance's aggression against our people in Palestine and Lebanon, and I am the only one responsible for it. The Afghan people and government knew nothing about it. America knows that," he said.

"Europe went along with it (the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan) because they had no other alternative, only to be a follower," he said.

He addressed Europeans, saying "the American tide is ebbing, with God's help, and they will leave back to their countries."

"Therefore it is better for you to press on your leaders who dropping in on the White House, to work seriously to lift the injustice against the believers and to get back to righteousness," he said, accusing U.S. forces and their allies of intentionally killing women and children in Afghanistan.

Al-Jazeera aired two brief excerpts of a few seconds each of the audiotape, titled "Message to the European Peoples," which al Qaeda had announced several days ago that it would release soon.

Apparently...

I missed this portion of the article...

"What this tape shows, among other things, is that Osama Bin Laden is very much alive and well and paying very close attention to the news media," said CBS News consultant Jere Van Dyk.

Bin Laden issued four public statements earlier this year -- on Sept. 7, Sept. 11, Sept. 20 and Oct. 22. The Sept. 7 video was his first in three years and was issued to mark the sixth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.

In 2004, bin Laden offered Europeans a truce if they stopped attacking Muslims, then later spoke of a truce with the United States. In both cases, al Qaeda later denounced the countries for not accepting its offers.

Bin Laden eluded coalition troops who invaded Afghanistan in late 2001, and is believed to be hiding along the Afghan-Pakistan frontier.

This has been the deadliest year in Afghanistan since the invasion. More than 6,100 people have been killed -- including more than 800 civilians -- in fighting, according to an Associated Press tally of figures from Afghan and Western officials.

Al Qaeda has dramatically stepped up its messages, a pace seen as a sign of its increasing technical sophistication and the relative security felt by its leadership.

Bin Laden's message was the 89th this year by Al Qaeda's media wing, Al-Sahab, an average of one every three days, double the rate in 2006, according to IntelCenter, a U.S. counterterrorism group that monitors militant messaging.

You Missed Something Else

The following is from the Al-Jazeera translation of the audiotape, repeated by AFP, but not sure if the American media brought it up

The US had "insisted on invading" Afghanistan even though it knew Afghanistan was not behind the attacks, and added that "Europe walked behind it," he said.

Bin Laden in his own words has confirmed what I have been saying on The Muckraker Report in "The Crime Behind the Criminal wars!" Bin Laden might yet confirm the rest of story whick would be desasterous for the United States but not for the neocons. I am very concerned and the following is the body of an email I sent to a Sr. aid on the House judiciary committee:

What I told you two days ago might become a reality sooner or later.
Right now Bin Laden is in Charge.

The following is an AFP report from The Daily Star in Beirut
http://www.dailystar.com.lb/article.asp?edition_id=10&categ_id=2&article...
"The US "insisted on invading" Afghanistan even though it knew that the Afghans were not behind the 2001 attacks"

When do you think he would spell it all out and say what I am saying in my articles?
He would if his back is to the wall and feels that he is about to be captured, or, he would wait until it does the most damage; maybe when Mosharraf goes after the tribal regions with the help of U.S. military advisors.

Bin Laden is in charge but it is also a symbiotic relationship between him and the neocons.

We need to get it out, control it, safeguard our own constitution and country. We cannot keep behaving like the sheep led to the slaughter house and all we can say is BAHHHHHH.

In other news: bin Laden raised from the dead

These 'new' Osama tapes are beginning to remind me of all the 'elevated' terror alerts c. 2003-4 when Tom Ridge was the director of the DHS.

"Out of these troubled times, our fifth objective — a New World Order — can emerge..." - George H.W. Bush, 9/11/91

I guess the title of this thread was

Appropriate.

FBI analysts were reviewing the tape but were not immediately able to say how long it was or when it might have been recorded nor could they provide other details. Spokesman Richard Kolko said it was being examined "to determine if it is authentic and for any intelligence value."

"As the FBI has said since 9/11, bin Laden was responsible for the attack," Kolko said in a statement. "In this latest tape, he again acknowledged his responsibility. This should help to clarify for all the conspiracy theorists, again — the 9/11 attack was done by bin Laden and al-Qaida."

Confused

"As the FBI has said since 9/11, bin Laden was responsible for the attack," Kolko said in a statement."

Then why did Rex Tomb of the FBI say that "the FBI has no hard evidence connecting bin Laden to 9/11"?

It would be interesting to know how many people take these tapes seriously.

This should help to clarify...

'This should help to clarify for all the conspiracy theorists, again — the 9/11 attack was done by bin Laden and al-Qaida.'

Apparently, the 'conspiracy theorists' aren't the only ones who need this clarified. You'd think more than six years on, for example, the FBI's own webpage of Most Wanted Fugitives would state this, since the matter has reportedly been so 'clarified'--but, well, have a look for yourself:

http://www.fbi.gov/wanted/topten/fugitives/laden.htm

Those 'other terrorist attacks throughout the world' they mention in addition to the African embassy bombings--might they have 9/11 in mind as being among them? It sure is vague language for referring to the event that precipitate the invasion of two countries and the shredding of the Bill of Rights--not at all 'clarifying.'

wait a minute!

I thought the crazed Kaleik Sheik Mohammed was the mastermind....I am confused and bewildered!
maybe Osama was replicated by Hollywood special effects arists as a robot...

Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.

I wonder if...

Osama came forward, and said he would be willing to do an unedited interview with any national mainstream media outlet, and face the consequences, would they do it?

Should ask Bin Laden to explain the free fall of the 3 WTC tower

John A MITCHELL

Bonjour ,

Bin Laden normally is an expert on building contruction.

We should ask him to explain the free fall of the three WTC towers and especially WTC7.

Explain the presence of Thermite/Themate and the microscopic spheres of molten steel in the WTC dust.

Explain from which computer the sequence of detonations was done.

Could Bin Laden really have organised the collapse of the WTC Towers ?

Anyway we can say that Bin Laden ( or his Hollywood double ) has come again to the rescue of George Bush and his cronies at an important moment when there are so many people ( and web sites) accusing the american government of organising the 911 attacks. At a moment when there is so much evidence showing that the official story can not be true.

Yours John

PRESS RELEASE: The Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, Ministerial Council, approved a decision to step up engagement with Afghanistan.

Nice timing

Dear Mr. bin Laden - (warning: attempted humor)

I hope that you and yours are well and that you are enjoying your extended stay off the west coast of Africa (your last reported location).

It's always very helpful (to some) to hear from you and we always find the timing of your announcements very interesting.

A simple request, if I may: when you next decide to record a message taking credit for the attacks on 9/11/01 would you mind terribly including the date of the recording in the message and giving a shout out to your good friend Ali Abdelsaoud Mohamed, who is currently a guest under the protection of the FBI and Mr. Dave Frasca, whose help at FBI headquarters was instrumental in allowing the 9/11 operation to go forward unimpeded.

We look forward to hearing from you again, and we know we will in the near future.

Thanks ever so much,

John

Cheers!

Arabesque: 911 Truth

of course Bin Laden is probably dead for years now !

"Bin Laden in his last tape, says stop accusing Dick Cheney" I told my colleagues. They did not find it funny because they could not work out why Bin Laden is coming clean on Dick Cheney.

As I saw they were confused, I added of course Bin Laden is probably dead for years now !
