Osama calls for an end to personal attacks

Osama bin Laden appeared on the Oprah show today, and had this to say,
"Of course, this group--the American media--isn't interested in the truth and they're not telling the truth. ... But here's what you really need to know about them. They're funded by hundreds of millions of dollars from large corporations out of Texas and Massachusetts. They're a mouthpiece for the Bush and Kerry campaigns. And the fact that Bush and Kerry won't denounce what they're up to tells you everything you need to know about them. They want the candidates to claim they alone can bring freedom-loving al-Qaedans to justice."

If bin Laden is telling the truth then America owes him an apology for its false accusations of his alleged involvement in the 9-11 attacks. In any case, examining the evidence against bin Laden would be subversive, conspiratorial, a waste of taxpayers money, and merely another shameless exercise in hate-filled, vitriolic personal attacks. It's time the American people made a distinction between bin Laden's public and private life. If he was behind the killing of Americans that's between him and his 911 wives.
