Al-Jazeera only released/translated 4 minutes of the 10 minute tape, the portion which they considered newsworthy.


In an Arabic transcription of the entire tape on the Al-Jazeera Web site — but not aired — bin Laden makes an oblique reference to how to prevent new attacks on the United States, but does not specify if these are conditions for a truce.

Bin Laden tells Americans that "if you are sincere in your desire for peace and security, and if Bush refuses to do anything but continue lies and oppression," then he recommends Americans read a book entitled "The Rogue State," apparently a reference to a book of that title by political analyst William Blum. The book has been published in Arabic.

"In its introduction, it states: 'If I were president, I would stop the attacks on the United States: First I would give an apology to all the widows and orphans and those who were tortured.Sorry, Osama. The torture of widows and orphans by America shall continue apace Then I would announce that American interference in the nations of the world has ended,'" he said.

If Osama Butt Laden agrees with that guy, then the path is clear! We should turn more muslims into orphans and widows and NEVER apologize. The last thing you want to do is to obey terrorists. We should do the opposite as often as we can.
