Bin Laden Speaks

Or at least, someone is claiming it is him.

CAIRO, Egypt - Al-Jazeera aired an audiotape purportedly from Osama bin Laden on Thursday, saying al-Qaida is making preparations for attacks in the United States but offering a truce to rebuild Iraq and Afghanistan.

So this raises (if this is him) two questions. Is he so damaged that he needs a truce, this would be great news, and why is he still running around free. It took us less time to capture and occupy Germany, Japan and Italy than it has taken us to track down this one man.

But, "It's hard work..."

Pat Lang has some thoughts on the meaning of the 'truce'
