Bin Laden Offers Americans More Advice to Ignore


A new audio message, reportedly by Osama bin Laden, has been released on a website that posts such things. “The time has come for you to liberate yourselves from fear and the ideological terrorism of neoconservatives and the Israeli lobby,” bin Laden suggests. “The reason for our dispute with you is your support for your ally Israel, occupying our land in Palestine.” Given that there’s no individual in the world whose guidance Americans are less likely to heed, we wonder if bin Laden has ever considered trying reverse psychology instead. Something like, “Hey America, you know what I love? That you support Israel so much. It really warms my heart. Keep up the good work.” [NYT]
