Bin Laden appoligizes for "mistakes" al-Qaeda has made in Iraq

This is a very strange turn of events. I can't figure out what he's up to, but it sounds like he is throwing in the towel--or maybe that's just wishful thinking...

I've never heard him admit that al-Qaeda anywhere, especially Iraq, has made a mistake. If we read his statement carefully, it seems like he wants "peace" in Iraq and everywhere... I find this statement very different from all the past proclamations of jihad and victory...

The mistake he admits to is alienating certain Sunni muslim groups, rather than working harder toward embracing them all under a single banner to oppose the Western infidels. That is hardly a cry for peace...

That may be, but I have never seen him admonish his followers to "...avoid divisive "extremism," After all, he is the embodiment of divisive extremism! There just seems to be something different in this message from past verbal assaults on his "enemies." IMO, something has changed. But I'm not really sure what that is...

What could have changed is that he's really dead and his mouthpiece is the one releasing all this blabber. I could be wrong but I find it unlikely he's among the living.

Well maybe unlike some others like you know who, he is learning to adapt. This call was in no way a call for peace but rather a call of a disparate man that thinks his flock ran away

See this is how it works: we invaded Iraq because the Sunni Baathists were "terrorists" even tho they had nothing to do with 9-11 and were actually killing Islamists for us. Now we have decided to fight the actual terrorists, and the ones who used to be "terrorists" are simply doing what they always did, which was to fight the Islamists, so we decided they are not "terrorists" anymore. Later, when all the Islamists are dead, and the Sunnis want their country back from us stealing it, they will be "terrorists" again, and we of course will not be terrorists as we resume killing their women and children and they resume blowing us up with car bombs so we stop stealing their fucking country. Got that?

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

I hate disparate men.
