Osama bin Laden, reading a statement to the American people in a new videotape aired Friday, directly admitted for the first time that he ordered the Sept. 11 attacks and said “the best way to avoid another Manhattan” was to stop threatening Muslims’ security…
He accused President Bush of “misleading” the American people since the 2001 suicide airline hijackings that hit the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
“Your security is not in the hands of (Democratic candidate John) Kerry or Bush or al-Qaida. Your security is in your own hands,” bin Laden said.
I expected something would popup a few days before the election to sway the US voters to one side or the other.
It would either be something from Al Qaeda threatening the US and swaying the votes towards Bush or lots of shit erupting in Iraq swaying them towards Kerry.
It seems Al Qaeda chose to endorse Bush, confirming the old post on Why Al-Qaeda wants President Bush to be re-elected.
Anyway, according to recent polls, it doesn’t seem to have made too big of an effect. But who believes polls.
We’ll only know when the votes are in tomorrow and the numbers start rolling out.
