Osama speaks.

But first let's hear from Nancy Pelosi:

“You permitted Bush to complete his first term, and stranger still, chose him for a second term, which gave him a clear mandate from you — with your full knowledge and consent — to continue to murder our people in Iraq and Afghanistan. Then you claim to be innocent!

Oh wait. That WAS Osama bin Laden. Sorry. I get confused. He even calls Cheney and Rumsfeld neoconservatives, so it's kind a spooky.

Ok, seriously. ABC has the details. But Jeff at PW's account is pretty good. Osama berates Americans:

“you made one of your greatest mistakes, in that you neither brought to account nor punished those who waged this war, not even the most violent of its murderers, [former Defense Secretary Donald] Rumsfeld…”

Like I said, spooky. Tell me that couldn't be Cindy Sheehan or Murtha. I know I'm being mean, but good grief. If my party was sounding like Osama bin Laden, then I would be reconsidering my party. Sorry. That is just the way I feel and you can get mad about it all you wish.

But in the Democrats defense, he chastises them too:

"for people have recently come to know that, after several years of tragedies of this war, the vast majority of you want it stopped. Thus, you elected the Democratic Party for this purpose, but the Democrats haven’t made a move worth mentioning. On the contrary, they continue to agree to the spending of tens of billions to continue the killing and war."

You see Democrats, you just aren't doing your job well.

Osama says there are two ways to end this war:

The first is from our side, and it is to continue to escalate the killing and fighting against you.” (ummm... and about the killing of all the Iraqi's?)

Jeff points out the second:

"The second is to do away with the American democratic system of government. “It has now become clear to you and the entire world the impotence of the democratic system and how it plays with the interests of the peoples and their blood by sacrificing soldiers and populations to achieve the interests of the major corporations.”

Jeff then points out these gems:

"He goes on to call Noam Chomsky “among one of the most capable of those from your own side,” and mentions global warming and “the Kyoto accord.”

Wouldn't you LOVE to be praised by Bin Laden and have him agree with your causes??

"He also speaks to recent issues grabbing headlines in the United States, referring to “the reeling of many of you under the burden of interest-related debts, insane taxes and real estate mortgages; global warming and its woes…“

Because we all know our crumbling cities in no way compare to the grandeur that is the middle east.

I just got this part from the WaPo:

"Osama bin Laden appeared for the first time in three years in a video Friday released ahead of the sixth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, telling Americans they should convert to Islam if they want the war in Iraq to end."

So I guess there is that part of the second way to end the war.

To be honest, I don't like even listening to what this monster has to say. I understand it's news and must be reported, but it's only attention he wants and craves. I hate that we have to give it to him.

HotAir has some of the video. It's worth it to go over there and read Allah.
