Bin Laden Promises American Execution If 9/11 Mastermind Is Sentenced To Death
March 25, 2010
(ChattahBox) – A new audio tape aired on Al Jazeera this morning featured Osama Bin Laden promising the deaths of any American’s captured by al Qaeda if Khalid Sheik Mohammad, the mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks, is executed.
The threat came from an audiotape that has not yet been confirmed as authentic, though some believe the fact that it was on an audio track, rather than a video tape, is telling evidence that it may be another within the terrorist organization, and not Bin Laden.
“This message is about our prisoners who you are holding,” the man on the tape said.
“The White House has expressed its desire to execute him. When America makes this decision, it will have made a decision to execute whoever of you is held prisoner by us.
“It is fair to treat each other the same. War is a back-and-forth.
“The White House politicians were and still are oppressing us, particularly in providing support to the Israelis and occupying our land in Palestine. They were thinking that America was safe behind oceans from the anger of the oppressed until the reaction was strong in your house on the 11th.”
While the White House has made no official statement regarding this threat, an anonymous counter-terrorism agent said that the comments were “absurd”.
“It’s the height of absurdity for anyone associated with al Qaeda to even suggest that now, at long last, they’re going to start treating captives badly. They may have forgotten Danny Pearl and all the others they’ve slaughtered, but we haven’t.”
