Bin There, Done That


Another Usama bin Laden tape has surfaced, the first since November.

The recording evidently goes into some detail explaining exactly why it is alright for hard-core religious warriors to make common cause with socialists like Saddam. It basically boils down to that old saying, "The enemy of my enemy is my friend."

This allows bin Laden to tell Iraqis to fight the good fight and keep the crusaders from taking Baghdad for as long as possible. Of course, it is impossible to know when the tape was made, even assuming it is the real deal.
