Not buying it.
And, what, pourquoi, was the United States doing, on February 26, 1993, when Al-Qaeda set off a bomb in the basement of the World Trade Center; on August 7, 1998, when Al-Qaeda bombed the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania; on October 12, 2000, when Al-Qaeda bombed the U.S. Navy destroyer USS Cole in Yemen; and September 11, 2001, when Al-Qaeda crashed two commercial passenger jets into the World Trade Center, one into the Pentagon, and caused one to crash in rural Pennsylvania? So far as I can tell, nothing---except making his relatives rich by buying oil from the Saudis. If he attacks unprovoked, why then should we believe that he would honor a truce, especially if it allowed him to recover his former strength?
Osama felt depressed from not having the Soviets to kick around after they withdrew from Afghan country in 1989. He had a fanatical army, but no one to use it on. So, he figured he would pick a fight with the only other superpower in town, the very ally who supported him in Afghanistan. But, this time it isn't going so well. And, despite his claims of success in the most recent speech, the tide is not turning; Iraq is, in the midst of violence, voting. Hence, his truce.
No worries, Binny, we will trace back the chain of custody from this latest tape and kill you just like we are killing every other Al-Qaeda terrorist.
Love and kisses.
