No Problem, Osama, It's Presidents Day And The President's Got You Covered!

Happy Presidents Day!

In his celebration of Presidents Day, Osama Bin Laden has vowed to never be captured alive.

I don't think he needs to worry about that, because I don't believe we are really looking for him. He's a mamber of a very powerful Saudi family with close ties to the Saudi Royal Family, Henry Kissinger, and the Bush family. He's elderly and infirm, suffering from renal disease, and we still can't find him!

I have to believe that nobody currently running the United States executive branch wants him captured or killed. He's the son of old friends and they can just let bygones be bygones.

George Bush and Dick Cheney have failed at every effort they've made except for gutting our Constitution and profiteering for their own benefit.

Celebrate Presidents Day 2006 by remembering that we have lost four airliners, two trade centers, a piece of the Pentagon, all our allies, an army in the desert, an American city, our freedom, funding for social programs, and our standing as the greatest nation ever.
Bin Laden Vows Never to Be Captured Alive

By STEVEN R. HURST, Associated Press Writer

Osama bin Laden vowed never to be captured alive and said the U.S. military had become as "barbaric" as Saddam Hussein in an audiotape reposted on a militant Islamic Web site after first being broadcast last month.

In the tape posted to the Web site Monday, bin Laden offered the United States a long-term truce but also said his al-Qaida terror network would soon launch a fresh attack on American soil. The tape was initially broadcast Jan. 19 on Al-Jazeera, the pan-Arab satellite channel.

Islamic militant Web forums often repost messages from al-Qaida leaders to ensure sympathizers can see them. U.S. intelligence officials confirmed that last month's tape was of bin Laden — making it his first message in more than a year.

"I have sworn to only live free. Even if I find bitter the taste of death, I don't want to die humiliated or deceived," bin Laden said, in the 11-minute, 26-second tape.

In drawing the comparison to American military behavior in Iraq to that of Saddam, he said:

"The jihad (holy war) is ongoing, thank God, despite all the oppressive measures adopted by the U.S. Army and its agents (which has reached) a point where there is no difference between this criminality and Saddam's criminality."

Bin Laden also denied Bush administration assertions that it was better to fight terrorists in Iraq than on U.S. soil.

"The reality shows that the war against America and its allies has not been limited to Iraq as he (Bush) claims. Iraq has become a point of attraction and restorer of (our) energies," he said.

The last audiotape purported to be from bin Laden was broadcast in December 2004 by Al-Jazeera. In that recording, he endorsed Abu-Musab al-Zarqawi as his deputy in Iraq and called for a boycott of Iraqi elections.

Associated Press reporter Omar Sinan contributed to this report.

Thank you, Mr. President. You have totally destroyed my nation.
