Translation of the Bin Laden videotape

Posted by: ST on September 7, 2007 at 8:00 pm

In another thread, ST reader GWR linked up to a translation of the new OBL video, provided by ABC News.

It’ll get your blood boiling when you read it – not just because it’s OBL taking a shot at US just days before the anniversary of the brutal terror attacks on our country that happened by his command, but because about 75% of it sounds like something we hear routinely coming out of the mouths of Bush-hating Democrats.

He hates capitalism, slams “neocons,” trashes Don Rumsfled, praises Noam Chomsky (one of many things he has in common with Hugo Chavez) he has in common with Chavez), warns about global warming, invokes the words of troops who have dissed the Iraq war, claims that the US tortures murders civilians indiscriminately, says we will not win in Iraq and that we should withdraw …

From GWR’s comment:

And it’s about what you’d expect. For example, this:

“among the most important items contained in Bush’s speeches since the events of the 11th is that the Americans have no option but to continue the war. This tone is in fact an echoing of the words of neoconservatives like Cheney, Rumsfeld, and Richard Perle”

Nope, that’s not from an Barack [Obama] or John Edwards speech – it’s from Osama. Although it is damn near impossible to tell the difference, isn’t it?

Or this:

“the world is following your news in regards to your invasion of Iraq, for people have recently come to know that, after several years of tragedies of this war, the vast majority of you want it stopped. Thus, you elected the Democratic Party for this purpose, but the Democrats haven’t made a move worth mentioning.”

Now that’s right out of the talking points of our buddy tommy from nyc…

He blames almost everything on big corporations – there’s the John Edwards speechwriter angle again – including the murder of President Kennedy. So far, at last look, not even Dennis Kucinich has made that charge. Give them time. Oh yes, the corporations are also the reason the Harry and Nancy show hasn’t succeeded in surrendering Iraq yet.

Then he descends into Goracle territory – seriously, is there any Democrat who doesn’t borrow from OBL’s talking points?

“In fact, the life of all mankind is in danger because of the global warming resulting to a large degree from the emissions of the factories of the major corporations”

And then, of course, there’s the obligatory demand that we all convert to islam. Which is about the only way you can distinguish this nonsense from the non-sequiturs spouted by our average domestic leftists.


I think I’m gonna be sick.

Semi-Related: Whew – just in time! John Edwards has a plan to battle terrorism. With what? A pair of hair shears? OBL must be shaking in his cave! :-ss

    Its almost like a loon produced this video.
    This guy looks like obl but there are differences in the nose, facial features, ect. And the Just For Men beard has got to go.
    We outta be justified in starting a mega conspiracy theroy this the dems are using a double and this is coming out now for a reason.
    Hell, every morning when I listen to left spin c-span there are still the nutroots who spout out the theories of the vast conspiracy that 9/11 was an inside job, like there were NO PLANES and all the people on the planes are not really dead and tons of peolple have been able to keep this vast conspiracy a secret since 9/11/01.
    Lets turn the table and start callling in with this theory.
    I, for one have not been to sure ubl is even still alive, think they took this evil tall ass out in the carpet bombing, just mu therory mind you, but hey, wanna start a rumor yall?

    Who knows?*-:)

    I think there’s a very good possibility that this is a fake video. As I always point out: if it’s 32 degrees out, and a storm is coming, the weather forecaster would be a fool to predict rain, because if it snows when he predicts rain, he gets hammered; if it rains when he predicts snow, nobody minds very much.

    So, anyway, of course the intel people are going to tell you it’s genuine, leaving the rest of us to wonder why a paranoid narcissist suddenly turns into a socialist.

    Either he’s dead or he’s being used/co-opted by new forces. That’s my guess anyway.

    This newly released tape is more suited for Saturday Nite Live than as serious news. Binnie’s been dead for years – taken out (vaporized) by one of our MOABs dropped in the wilds of Afghanistan. MOABs don’t leave a corpse behind. (~~)

    The script is too weird, I think that American-turned Islamo Jihadist wrote it; too many references to things only a US born former lefty would be obsessed with. Why would Osama bin Laden be a Kennedy assassination conspiricist? The real OBL wanted all of us dead, period!

  7. Tom TB says:

    Adam Gadahn is his name; he was in a video released on last year’s 9/11.
