Bin Laden’s Final Video Warns of the Dangers of Capitalism


In a nutshell: Warnings about the evils of profiting from war; the US is to blame for much of the world’s ills; and Bush is Satan. But enough about Paul Krugman’s 9/11 remarks.

Osama bin Laden’s final video, recorded before his fate was SEALed, has been released:

A day after Americans observed the tenth anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks by al Qaeda, a new video featuring the terror group’s now-deceased leader surfaced in which Osama bin Laden warns the American people not of coming attacks, but of the dangers of capitalism and the military-industrial complex.

Appearing thin and with a very black beard, bin Laden says major corporations — the “undeclared kings” of America — ignite wars on purpose for profit and wield the power over elected officials.

Wow, that’s one tape that’ll end up in Michael Moore’s porn stash.

And in a final goodwill gesture, Bin Laden even gives a book plug to Bob Woodward:

Bin Laden also urges Americans to read “Obama Wars” by the Washington Post’s Bob Woodward, who bin Laden said, “urged Obama to be more honest with you and let you know that he is under pressure to continue the war and to support the Israelis, not to further America’s interests but to further the interests.”

Suggested reading for Bin Laden: 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

Isn’t it kind of weird to try to help an American sell a book during a video rant against free-market capitalism?
