In a video tape released in late 2004, that many say was the straw that broke John Kerry’s back in the presidential election, Bin Laden talks at length about his goal to bankrupt the US by making war in Iraq and around the world.
Unfortunately, George Bush and his henchmen forged forward with their version of holy war in Iraq. Now it is becoming abundantly clear that Bin Laden’s plan is coming to fruition. Ask yourself, is Bin Laden winning so far and what does this say about John Mc Hoover’s plans to continue this foolish war. It's not just the housing bubble that is at the center of our economic problem it is also the 10 billion a month bill we pay for the foolish war in Iraq.
Here are the excerpts from that 2004 tape:
"We are continuing this policy in bleeding America to the point of bankruptcy. Allah willing, and nothing is too great for Allah,"
"We, alongside the mujahedeen, bled Russia for 10 years until it went bankrupt and was forced to withdraw in defeat,"
al Qaeda has found it "easy for us to provoke and bait this administration."
"All that we have to do is to send two mujahedeen to the furthest point east to raise a piece of cloth on which is written al Qaeda, in order to make generals race there to cause America to suffer human, economic and political losses without their achieving anything of note other than some benefits for their private corporations,"
"Every dollar of al Qaeda defeated a million dollars, by the permission of Allah, besides the loss of a huge number of jobs," he said. "As for the economic deficit, it has reached record astronomical numbers estimated to total more than a trillion dollars.
"It is true that this shows that al Qaeda has gained, but on the other hand it shows that the Bush administration has also gained, something that anyone who looks at the size of the contracts acquired by the shady Bush administration-linked mega-corporations, like Halliburton and its kind, will be convinced.”
"And it all shows that the real loser is you, It is the American people and their economy."
"the darkness of black gold blurred his vision and insight, and he gave priority to private interests over the public interests of America.
"So the war went ahead, the death toll rose, the American economy bled, and Bush became embroiled in the swamps of Iraq that threaten his future"
