Yes indeedy, OBL is taking the long dirt nap. We'll never find his remains so it can be verified beyond a shadow of a doubt, but nonetheless he's a corpse. How can I be so sure? He never taunts the US anymore. All high level communications from Al Qaeda are now issued by al-Zawahiri. We can stop the charade of calling him Al Qaeda's No. 2, he has now inherited the No. 1 spot.
You know what really steams al-Zawahiri? Jews. You know what else? Barrack Obama.
Al-Qaida's No. 2 leader lashed out at President-elect Barack Obama in a new audio message Tuesday, accusing him of not doing anything to stop Israel's offensive in the Gaza Strip, according to an intelligence monitoring center.Well maybe the media did over hype the whole Hope and Change thing. And Zawahiri probably isn't alone in his disappointment that Obama's not going to flip the switch on American foreign policy come January 20. But geez, he hasn't even been sworn in yet. Obama effigies and hate mail are a little premature.
In the comments, which were posted on a militant Web site and obtained by the SITE Monitoring Service, al-Zawahiri described Israel's actions in Gaza as a "crusade against Islam and Muslims" and called it "Obama's gift to Israel" before he takes office later this month.
"This is Obama whom the American machine of lies tried to portray as the rescuer who will change the policy of America," al-Zawahiri said, according to SITE. "He kills your brothers and sisters in Gaza mercilessly and without affection."
It's just sad how some folks are just so determined to bring Obama down they can't even wait for him to take office before they start with the bashing.
You know who else Zawahiri hates? Hosni Mubarak:
Al-Zawahiri, who is Egyptian, also criticized Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, calling him a "traitor" for keeping Egypt's border with the Gaza Strip closed since Hamas seized power.Yeah, what happened to Egypt? They used to be all about fighting the Jews. Now they build walls to keep out Hamas just like Israel. No wonder he's ticked. Maybe he should go to Gaza and publicly protest. No doubt a warm welcome could be arranged.
The audio message was accompanied by a still photograph of the al-Qaida leader sitting with a gun in his lap.A still photo and some audio tape? Either he's just mailing it in or he's already dead and releasing tapes from beyond the grave just like Tupac Shakur. A super villain owes his henchmen better. North Korea arranges for Kim Jong-il's stunt doubles to show up on video, is some grainy footage of a body double asking too much?
We can take solace in the fact renal failure is a miserable way to die. Hellfire missiles are too quick and painless. Enjoy your shallow pauper's grave, Osama.
