Bin Laden Tape ‘Indicator’ of Upcoming Terrorist Attack
January 25, 2010
(ChattahBox)—Osama bin Laden, al-Qaida leader and 9/11 mass murderer, released an audio tape on Sunday taking credit for the failed Christmas-day bombing attempt and warning the United States that terrorist attacks “will continue as long as you maintain your support to Israel.” And a U.S. monitoring group, after reviewing the tape and comparing it to previous messages from bin Laden, believes that the specific language used is ominously coded, pointing to a “possible indicator” of an upcoming attack against America.
The group IntelCenter monitors Islamist websites, and has determined that the tape is indeed the voice of Osama bin Laden and indicates a credible threat. “The Osama bin Laden audio message released to Al-Jazeera on 24 January 2010 contains specific language used by bin Laden in his statements in advance of attacks,” said IntelCenter in a statement. The wording chosen by the terrorist leader points to “a possible indicator of an upcoming attack” in the next 12 months, the group said.
“This phrase, ‘Peace be upon those who follow guidance,’ appears at the beginning and end of messages released in advance of attacks that are designed to provide warning to Al-Qaeda’s enemies that they need to change their ways or they will be attacked,” according to the statement released by IntelCenter.
Similar language was used in messages before the attack on the Danish Embassy in Islamabad in June 2008 and Al-Qaeda attacks in London in July 2005.
Authorities believe Osama bin Laden is in hiding in the mountainous terrain of the Pakistan and Afghanistan border.
