As I delved into the wrestling arena of trying to purchase books for classes last week, the words of the Bush administration’s response to the infamous Osama Bin Laden’s tapped message screams within my mind.

 

“This is about the best he can do,” White House aide Frances Fragos Townsend stated. “This is a man on the run, from a cave, who’s virtually impotent other than these tapes. We know that al-Qaeda is still determined to attack, and we take it seriously, but this tape appears to be nothing more than threats. It’s propaganda on their part.”

And yet, nothing on the tapes suggests a threat from the leader of evil.

 

In fact, the propagrandfather of darkness made no threats against America citizens and does not call on his extremist brothers to attack. However, he does call on Americans to convert to Islam if they want the war in Iraq to stop.

That could be considered a threat if you are an over-zealous Christian looking for a another reason to not turn the other cheek and instead thump the mastermind of devils in the head with the long arm of a vengeful Christ.

 

Sadly, it would all be for naught—the President is too wrapped up in Iraq to notice the true threat on the border of the dictator-controlled Pakistan, Bush’s friend and ally, and Afghanistan, the place America forgot.

 

And the latest National Intelligence Estimate, if it can still be trusted after previous major screw-ups (weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and the bombing of the trade centers in the 20th and 21st centuries), al-Qaeda is intensifying efforts to put operatives in the United States while plotting against targets in the homeland to cause wide-scaled tragedies.

Our country has been searching for Osama Bin Laden since the bombing of the Gold Mihor Hotel in Aden, Yemen on Dec. 29, 1992 and the U.S. Embassy bombings in 1998. President Bill Clinton signed an executive order for the arrest or assassination of Osama Bin Laden.
