UPDATED: Bush Releases Bin Laden Video Four Days Before 9/11 Anniversary

Anyone surprised? The Bush administration has released a new video of the plotters of the 9/11 attacks. Hmmm....four days before the fifth anniversary of the attacks. So yesterday, Bush blackmailed America, threatening to release the terrorists back into the world if Americans don't follow his plan, and today he played up the fear of 9/11 with this new video released.

Will Americans be smarter than fall for this play on our fears yet again? I can only hope, but America's track record is not very good.

UPDATED: an astute annonymous reader commented on my mistake in not reading the article I linked to carefully. This video was released by Al-Qaida's production company and not Bush. You still have to wonder why both sides are playing up the fear as the anniversary approaches. I'm leaving up my mistake and not changing a thing. Unlike some of our leaders, I can admit to making a mistake and not try to revise history to erase it.

Dude, put down the bong and read the article you link to. It says that Al Jazeera released the video, not Bush.

ah you're right. my bad.

interesting though which two parties like to play up the fear as the anniversary comes closer, though.
