– BIN LADEN THREATENS AMERICA IN AN AUDIO
Osama Bin Laden, Al Qaeda’s spiritual leader, on Thursday 03/25/2010, has in a new audio recording threatened to have American soldiers killed if Khalid Shaik Mohammed, considered as one of the masterminds behind The 9/11, is executed.
The latest recording was broadcast on Al Jazeera. “The day America will take such decision [to execute Mohammed and any others] it would have taken a decision to execute whoever we capture,” Bin Laden said.
Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other people allegedly involved in The 9/11 attacks are due to go on trial in the USA, where prosecutors are expected to seek the death penalty (see -Holder’s NY Decision). The audio message, apparently recorded by Bin Laden, threatens to avenge his death by murdering USA citizens who are taken hostage by Al Qaeda
Bin Laden also said that Barack Obama, the USA president, is “following the footsteps of his predecessor”, a reference to George Bush, the former US president. “The politicians in the White House were practicing injustice against us and still they are, especially by supporting Israel in its continuous occupation of Palestine.
“They used to think that America across the oceans is protected from the rage of the oppressed until our reaction was loudly heard at your home on The 9/11 with God’s help,” he says in the recording. The last audio recording attributed to bin Laden was released on 01/24/2010 (see – Laden 01.24.10).
In it, he claimed responsibility for alleged attempted attack on Flight-253 airliner on Christmas Day and vowed there would be further attacks on the USA unless Obama took steps to resolves the Palestinian situation.
