Well, UBL has spoken. And since Bin Laden used, almost verbatim, language from Michael Moore's crockumentary Farenheit 9/11, it is clear that Kerry has found another world leader who supports his candidacy for the presidency. We can also be sure that Bin Laden also probably has a membership in Netflix International because he has obviously seen the video.
Just my quick observations. I think this IS the pre-election terror attack intended to influence the outcome of the election. Bin Laden is obviously watching what is going on in our media, and has hit all the right notes, at the right time, to echo the script of the democrat party and the democrat candidate. He even mentioned Bush reading about the goat while the people in the towers burned to death.
It is now perfectly obvious that just as he did in the Vietnam war, Kerry's public statements are giving aid and comfort to the enemy in a time of war. He is right. His Vietnam experience has equipped him perfectly for the role he is playing today.
Most likely this will play to Bush's advantage. Bush polls way out in front of Kerry as to who can manage the war on terror best. To be reminded by this tape that the threat is still out there is only to be reminded that we have to keep an administration in power which is already fighting a war on terror and is doing a good job. In a way, the public has become complacent, and I think a lot of people do not actually believe that the terror threat in this country is really a danger anymore because Bush has done such an excellent job of protecting the homeland during this time.
Beyond that we will have to wait and see if this is a signal for a large-scale attack or simply the best that Bin Laden can muster at the time.
Ironically, the Kerry people were convinced that George Bush had already bagged Osama and would produce him a few days before the election. Instead Osama has produced himself and given us all a nasty Halloween surprise. We'll have to wait and see if all he can muster is a big "Boo"!!
Well, if nothing else, it pretty much puts the possibility of a few tons of explosives missing into perspective.
