Where is a quote from UBL saying heâ€™d like the US to invade Iraq?
Where is that in the 911 Commission report?
Where is it in any of the Sen Intel Com reports?
Where is it in Steve Collâ€™s, Ghost Wars?
Where is it in Bergenâ€™s books on UBL?
Here's your quote:
"O mujahideen brothers in Iraq, do not be afraid of what the United States is propagating in terms of their lies about their power and their smart, laser-guided missiles.
The smart bombs will have no effect worth mentioning in the hills and in the trenches, on plains, and in forests.
They must have apparent targets. The well-camouflaged trenches and targets will not be reached by either the smart or the stupid missiles.
There will only be haphazard strikes that dissipate the enemy ammunition and waste its money. Dig many trenches.
The [early Muslim caliph] Umar, may God be pleased with him, stated: "Take the ground as a shield because this will ensure the exhaustion of all the stored enemy missiles within months."
Their daily production is too little and can be dealt with, God willing.
We also recommend luring the enemy forces into a protracted, close, and exhausting fight, using the camouflaged defensive positions in plains, farms, mountains, and cities.
The enemy fears city and street wars most, a war in which the enemy expects grave human losses."
Sounds a lot like he's saying:
"BRING IT ON"!!!
This is only one part of the full text of an audio message by Osama Bin Laden, broadcast on Arab television station al-Jazeera on 11 February, 2003, just before the Iraq invasion.......
The Bush administration believes the tape to almost certainly be genuine....

"Try to grasp this simple concept: Bush did not have to invade Iraq, but hd did invade Iraq, despite it being clear to many many people that this woudl be playing into OBLâ€™s hands. This information was so compelling that a major magazine put it on their cover, columns were written, and the Bush admin smeared everyone they could, and did it anyway."
It is a simple concept....unfortunate that so many cannot grasp it...dont waste your time trying to reason with them....the replies that you will continue to get remind me of something Confucius once said: "Better for fool to keep mouth shut than to open it and remove all doubt"...
OBL had hoped to draw us into a protracted war in Afganistan, but failed to do so. Did we quit while we were ahead??? Of course not...he didn't even have to do anything in Iraq and got exactly what he wanted....
And unquestionably...the world is LESS SECURE....
If you haven't already read it, I thought that you might be interested in this article written by James K. Galbraith in November, 2002.....before the invasion of Iraq...you can find it at:Comment Posted By leaflet dropper On 23.08.2006 @ 23:44
