Where is bin Laden?

How many unborn toddlers were murdered today because of the humanistic, paganish decisions of the United States Supreme Court?

“Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn’t do it, sins.” James 4: 17 (NIV)

A short news article was on page A2 of the Peoria Journal Star on April 26, 2007. Quoting the article in its entirety, “A top Taliban commander said al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden was behind the February attack outside a U.S. military base in Afghanistan during a visit by Vice President Dick Cheney, according to an interview shown Wednesday by Arab broadcaster Al-Jazeera.

Bin Laden planned and supervised the attack that killed 23 people outside the Bagram base while Cheney was there, said Mullah Dadullah, the Taliban’s main military commander in southern Afghanistan who has had close associations with al-Qaida.

He did not say how he knew bin Laden planned the attack, and it was not clear when the interview took place.

Deputy White House press secretary Dana Perino said it was ‘an interesting claim but … I haven’t seen any intelligence that would support that.’”

How can the American people not believe that this is a true and accurate report? First, it is a claim made by a Taliban commander therefore it must be true according to the wisest of the wise. Then, it was broadcast by a media representative so it certainly must be true and accurate. A Taliban official would not lie would he? A media representative would not air a segment unless he knew it to be true would he? American mass media would not repeat the story unless they also knew it was true would they?

Do you remember a time not too many years ago when Osama bin Laden would be shown in person boasting about his achievements and attempting to taunt the American government? Why did he not do it that way this time? Where is his boastful arrogance? Where is his personal appearance? Where is his confident utterances that the “Great Satan” is doomed?

Okay, he did switch from being before a camera to a voice recording touting his most recent successes. Why did he not speak for himself this time? Why send forth a mouthpiece? Wouldn’t the claim be more believable if he personally trumpeted his latest achievement? Do you think he is having a self-esteem problem? When was the last time we even had a claimed video or voice representation of Osama bin Laden? Isn’t it strange how he has become personally quiet and withdrawn?

Cuban Dictator Fidel Castro had major surgery several months ago. Periodically, a news report would be shown showing the dictator and assuring the people of Cuba that he is recovering. Why does Osama bin Laden not do similar broadcasts to assure his supporters that he is alive and well and still actively working to destroy the “Great Satan”?

Where is Osama bin Laden? Is he too frightened to come out of hiding to even make a video broadcast or voice message? Is he too sick or injured to present himself before the world? Is he dead? Is he just on an extended vacation? Where is Osama bin Laden?

But then, if he has libertine Democrats doing his work, maybe he doesn’t need to be personally involved?
