CAIRO — Usama bin Laden claimed responsibility for the attempt to bomb a Detroit-bound airliner on Christmas in a new audio message released Sunday threatening more attacks on the United States.
A senior U.S. intelligence official in Washington said there is "no evidence whatsoever" that bin Laden had any involvement on the Christmas Day attack — or even knew about it beforehand. The message suggests the Al Qaeda leader wants to appear in direct command of the terrorist group's many affiliates around the world at a time when some analysts have suggested he is mostly a figurehead.
In the minute-long recording carried by Al-Jazeera Arabic news channel, bin Laden addressed President Obama saying the Christmas attack was meant to send a message similar to that of the Sept. 11 attacks.
"The message delivered to you through the plane of the heroic warrior Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was a confirmation of the previous messages sent by the heroes of the Sept. 11," he said. "America will never dream of security unless we will have it in reality in Palestine," he added.
"God willing, our raids on you will continue as long as your support for the Israelis continues."
White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said the tape has yet to be authenticated, but wouldn't offer an opinion on whether bin Laden had any role in the Christmas Day bombing
Now I don't want to come sounding like Gaff here but I have believed for a long time that Bin Laden is dead. I believe that the US State dept., the CIA and the FBI need to keep him alive in the media just as I am sure Al Queda needs to keep him alive in the media as a recruitment/motivation tool. This sudden claim of responsibilty falls right in-line with many previous Bin Laden messages claiming to destroy us and the like. The part of this story that gets me is that I have read stories that say he never claimed credit for 911. So witch is it? Did he mastermind 911 or the Christmas bombing? Spreaders of Disinformation should monitor continuity. The producres of TV shows have whole units directed at this from filming to editing. If you want us to really buy this crap than stay true to what you've reported in the past. IMO: this ain't him, he had nothing to do with it, he is dead, a small AA Al Queda outfit planned and muffed this attack. I'm SPfloppy and that's just my opinion
