Osama for Kerry!

Although he'd never admit it, and he makes one statement to suggest this isn't the case, Osama Bin Laden's Arabic TV message would appear to be an indirect display of support for John Kerry:

One of bin Laden's more explosive statements on the tape was that al-Qaeda's suicide airplane attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, would have been less severe if Bush had been more vigilant and acted more quickly. Instead, he said, Bush continued listening to "a little girl's talk about her goat and its butting."

As well as:

The al-Qaeda leader said the hijackers had planned to have all the attacks take place within 20 minutes because they were sure the Americans would react quickly and start shooting down errant airplanes. Bush's delay "gave us three times the required time to carry out the operations, thanks be to God," bin Laden said.

Statements like these coming mere days before the US election . . . I'd call them telling indicators of who Bin Laden's supporting this time around. It'll be interesting to see which man canvasses more trust from American voters: President Bush or Osama Bin Laden.
