Please read the link above, and follow some of the links within the story. AQ has definitely changed the way they talk about the current conflict, and changed the kind of war they want to fight, and it's music to the ears of the West.

But....but....but Saudi Arabia supported the 9/11 attack against the US! They’re our enemies! Surely, they must be on the side of Al Qaeda!
He forgot to add, "Why did we attack a harmless Iraq when the real threat was Saudi Arabia?"

There's a part of this new tape that is being withheld by a media conspiracy. On it, OBL says that if you play the Beatles' White Album backwards it says "Bush is dead".

Good one Godot! [Big Grin]

binary logic again. Either the Saudis (all of them, every last force within the ruling class) are totally the side of AQ, or they are totally not.

But when we WANT to attack someone and paint them as deserving of our shock and awe, then every little incidental 9 year old contact is proof.

Sounds like somebody needs a little shock and awe. Didn't I see you with one of the Bad Saudis in 1998?

PS. Don't disrespect binary logic. I make my living on binary logic.

No disrespect, but what's essential for conmputers and robots is destructive for humans. I guess you know that, tho.

You are either with fuzzy logic or you are against it. Maybe.

... and despite the total shift in speaking terms used by Osama bin Laden, only a few short responses.

How exactly do I interpret this state of affairs? Is OBL suddenly not so relevant? Is the turn-around on the House of Saud not that important? Is AQ not to be taken seriously anymore? Does this not have implications for our own Homeland Security?
