It was only audio, no video included. I have to wonder if this tape was "uncovered" by intelligence prior to it being played on the air. Could this be part of the 'chatter' they are referring to when they increased the security levels?
You just know that sooner or later something is going to happen, and we are such an open country that it makes it that much easier for someone to accomplish a task. I just hope it fails, or is too small to have a major impact.
Bin laden was actually supported by the US in Afghanistan when he was with rebels fighting against the Soviets that were in the country in the '80's.
Osama started disliking the U.S. just following in his father's footsteps, an anger that goes back to the day that modern day Israel was established in the midsts of Islam. The U.S. immediately recognized the new government of Israel, a tremendous sore spot amoung many Muslims.

His very vocal objections to Americans on Saudi soil caused him to be completely stripped of any rights in his homeland.

Learn your history. In 1993, Osama tried to bring down the Twin Towers by placing a bomb near the support columns in the garage of one of the towers, hoping that one would topple onto the next, but it didnt work. And that was when Clinton was president. Just because his plan worked this time, doesnt make it Bushs fault.
