11:45 BLT (bin Laden time)
According to the text of Osama's latest threat/truce offering, "... delay in carrying out similar operations in America, this was not due to failure to breach your security measures. Operations are under preparation, and you will see them on your own ground once they are finished (emphasis added), God willing. ...We do not object to a long-term truce with you on the basis of fair conditions that we respect. ...I swear not to die but a free man even if I taste the bitterness of death. I fear to be humiliated or betrayed."
Contrast the new, desperate message to al-Qaeda's March, 2004 threat babble: "...the terrorist group announced it preparations for an attack on the U.S. were 70 percent complete. That increased to 90 percent, according to an al Qaeda spokesman just after the March 11 terrorist attack in Madrid, Spain." So, for almost 2 years al-Qaeda has been at least 90% prepared to attack us on U.S. soil. Why have they not? They have been arrested, appropriately renditioned, and continually monitored. All this has been done by our modernized DHS. Now, Osama dares ordinary bubbas to join the search. Is he a muslim, moron, or both? (Actually, M.E. believes Zawahri was correct, Sammy is dead).
Recently, an aggressive airstrike appears to have terrorized al-Qaida's second-in-command, Ayman al-Zawahri. Where can he safely hide, now? How will he replace his key operatives, (Khalid Habib, al-Qaida's operations chief along the Afghan-Pakistan border, Abdul Rehman al-Maghribi, Midhat Mursi al-Sayid Umar, an al-Qaida explosives expert with a $5 million bounty on his head, and a Moroccan believed to be al-Zawahri's son-in-law, believed killed by the missles?
The terror network's figureheads are barely alive, cowered and extremely desperate. The audio tape release would contradict Zawahri's purported claim earlier this month that Osama was dead and buried in Iran - no doubt a ruse to end the relentesss tracking by all manner of special operations forces, drones, bounty hunters and enemies of Wahabism.
Allah willing, these villains foresee their clock of doom. The time is 11:45 BLT (bin laden time, or bacon-lettuce-tomato).
