Call me crazy, but I think we should be a little skeptical of a man who wants to blow up a good portion of the earth suddenly expressing concern for its well-being:
CAIRO (AP) – Al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden has called in a new audiotape for the world to boycott American goods and the U.S. dollar, blaming the United States and other industrialized countries for global warming.
In the tape, aired in part on Al-Jazeera television Friday, bin Laden warns of the dangers of climate change and says that the way to stop it is to bring “the wheels of the American economy” to a halt.
Fear not, Osama — or whoever is actually making these videos — because if bringing the wheels of the American economy to a halt will fix global warming, the Obama administration and the Democrat-controlled Congress are already on the job!
Al Gore and Bin Laden both agree that global warming is a greater threat to humanity than terrorism, so it’s true that there are no issues upon which two people can’t find common ground.
Here’s a portion of the newest Bin Laden video:
Update: Somebody at Free Republic thinks that by bashing America and trying to save the world from global warming, Bin Laden is angling for a Nobel Peace Prize. I’d have to agree.
