Bin Laden Vows Never to Be Captured Alive


CAIRO, Egypt - Osama bin Laden promised never to be captured alive and declared the U.S. had resorted to the same "barbaric" tactics used by Saddam Hussein, according to an audiotape purportedly by the al-Qaida leader posted Monday on a militant Web site.

The tape appeared to be a complete version of one that was first broadcast Jan. 19 on Al-Jazeera, the pan-Arab satellite channel, in which bin Laden offered the United States a long-term truce but also said his al-Qaida terror network would soon launch a fresh attack on American soil.

"I have sworn to only live free. Even if I find bitter the taste of death, I don't want to die humiliated or deceived," bin Laden said. He also said U.S. actions in Iraq were comparable to the actions of the ousted Iraqi leader.

The tape's release in January came days after a U.S. airstrike in Pakistan that was targeting bin Laden's deputy, Ayman al-Zawahri, and reportedly killed four leading al-Qaida figures, including possibly al-Zawahri's son-in-law. There was no mention of the attack on the segments that were broadcast.

It was the first tape from the al-Qaida leader in more than a year — the longest period without a message since the Sept. 11 2001 suicide hijackings in the United States.

The CIA last month authenticated the voice on the initial recording as that of bin Laden, an agency official told The Associated Press at the time. The al-Qaida leader is believed to be hiding in the border region between Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Well, if he would rather be shot than taken alive, I am sure some willing member of the US Armed Forces would be happy to oblige him...

I can live with that.

The Pakistani secret service will do it first, and then claim credit for having "tracked him down."

I would like to see him captured and paraded around a bit doing the above Saddam-approved perp walk, then taken to Guantanamo for a fair trial and a fine hanging.

That would be just dandy.

If captured alive:

Maybe we should set him up with his own infidel "reality show". He can live an work with un-veiled women, homosexuals, blacks, jews etc.

What do you think?

Saw that.... Why would al Jazeera just rebroadcast the whole thing?

Any hidden meanings?

Meh. bin Laden is a doody head.

I wonder what would happen if he should be taken captive by a female soldiers who happens to be Jewish? Or shot by one?

That would be awesome. Instead of the belly chains and cuffs, use the leather ones, but not cow or steer hide, use pigskin.

Or better yet, just shoot him in his hole.

Fine with me.

Fair enough.

Good don't even bother trying to capture him. $.25 bullet throug the noggin vs Millions to feed him in captivity.

I'll donate to the ammo pool.
Link Posted: 2/20/2006 9:43:59 AM EDT
Good.
Though I do not see bin Laden as the "Holy Grail" so to speak.
He is only one leader, a powerful one yes, but still just one man.
I'm afraid people will want to call it quits and go home after bin Laden bites it.

Well, isn't that special.

And I vow, that if I should meet ol' osama, he will not have to worry about that....
Link Posted: 2/20/2006 9:58:10 AM EDT
Ok.

Good. Let us know where you are and we will drop a JDAM on your head.
Link Posted: 2/20/2006 10:07:01 AM EDT
As if blowing up innocent women children and men or beheading people wasn't barbaric. I'm surprised it didn't have something that said "soon the U.S. will be just as bad as us!"
Link Posted: 2/20/2006 10:08:28 AM EDT
Fine with me. I'd be just as happy to see him in pieces small enough to fit in an envelope.
Link Posted: 2/20/2006 10:27:25 AM EDT
What do you wanna bet he's a little pussy, who will drop any guns he has and beg to be allowed to surrender when American boots surround him?

Of course, that's if we don't feel like taking him out from 30k feet first.
