Bin Laden vows no US security in tape

Osama bin Laden warned in his final audio tape recorded before being killed by American commandos there will be no US security before the Palestinians live in security, an Islamist website says.

Addressing US President Barack Obama, he said: “America will not be able to dream of security until we live in security in Palestine. It is unfair that you live in peace while our brothers in Gaza live in insecurity.”

“Accordingly, and with the will of God, our attacks will continue against you as long as your support for Israel continues,” he warned in a message posted on Sunday on Shamikh1.net, a conduit for al-Qaeda communications.

The founder of al-Qaeda said he had tried to send a “message” to the United States through Nigerian Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, who tried to explode a bomb on a Detroit-bound US airliner in December 2009.

“If it were possible to send you messages by way of words, we would not have had to use planes to send them to you,” he said.

“So the message we wanted to convey through the plane of our hero, the fighter Umar Farouk, may God be with him, confirms a previous message which had been sent to you by our heroes of September 11,” he said in a clear reference to the September 11, 2001 attacks against the United States.

The audio recording lasting 1.02 minutes had no reference to the recent popular Arab uprising.

However, jihadists had said the tape, made a week before bin Laden’s death, would have a message for the Arab Spring.

Another branch of the terror network, al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), gave bin Laden credit for the popular Arab revolutions and asked followers to turn their “grief into action” against the West.

“Do not cry for him… Instead rise and go on his path… Rise and thwart the American Zionist Western unjust aggression with all of your power and energy,” the AQIM said in a statement.

“These events that are storming through the Arab region are only a fruit among the fruits ofjihad in which the Sheikh (bin Laden) had a prominent role,” the AQIM said.

After an initial reluctance, al-Qaeda on Friday confirmed the death of their leader and warned that those rejoicing his killing would have their “blood mixed with tears” and vowed the jihadist network would live on.

However, Obama, to whom bin Laden addressed his final message, has already swept aside the militants’ defiant reaction and pledged that the United States will crush what’s left of the terror network.

“We have cut off their head and we will ultimately defeat them,” Obama said on Friday after meeting in private with the special forces personnel who raided bin Laden’s hideout in Pakistan last Monday and killed him.

Three days after bin Laden’s killing, a US drone targeted a US-Yemeni cleric and terror suspect Anwar al-Awlaqi in Yemen, but the man narrowly escaped.

Thursday’s strike in Yemen’s Shabwa province, a stronghold of al-Qaeda, is the first reported American targeting of other key figures in the terror network after a stealthy commando raid killed bin Laden.

It is not clear if Awlaqi was targeted following information the United States had said it gathered from bin Laden’s hideout near the Pakistan capital Islamabad.

Incredible (but no surprise either!) how US pro-Israel biased media doesn’t mention the part about US security and Palestine:

The Israel Lobby Archive this week releases documents obtained from the Ronald Reagan Library/National Archives in Simi Valley.  Although pressured by Republican Party Senate and Congressional leaders, as well as his own White House staff, Reagan refused to personally address the May 15, 1988 annual convention of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.

Obama vs. Reagan on AIPAC: Documents reveal Ronald Reagan’s response to Israel lobby’s invitation

Politico reports that President Barack Obama may attend the annual American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) gathering in Washington, D.C. According to documents released last week by the National Archives, President Ronald Reagan had a more appropriate answer to invitations and party pressure to attend AIPAC’s gathering on May 15, 1988, “No, thanks.” Until Bill Clinton came along, no American president had ever accepted an invitation to speak at the Israel lobby’s annual confab while still in office. President Obama may this month reveal himself to be more pliable to Israeli, party, stealth PAC, and single-issue campaign contributors than many of his forebears. But what factors should a modern president consider before responding to an AIPAC invitation?

Reagan didn’t find AIPAC a fitting venue for a president. He clearly could have attended, but he chose not to. On March 25, 1988, Sen. Richard Lugar pitched the White House on behalf of AIPAC. “They are (of course) very anxious to have the president. These are sophisticated and informed folks (who know what RR has done for the relationship), and I am told the chief will get a tumultuous welcome.” House Republican Leader Robert H. Michel noted that “apparently he [Reagan] has never talked to them specifically, and this would be the last year for this one also.” Frederick J. Ryan, in charge of presidential appointments and scheduling at the White House, also urged attendance. “Despite the fact that the AIPAC has opposed various administration efforts to sell arms to Arab countries, this would be an event worth doing.  I have no doubt that he will be hailed by this most powerful of Washington lobbies as the truest friend of Israel ever to sit in the Oval Office.” When Reagan died, AIPAC reaffirmed this sentiment, gushing about how a president so committed to American welfare reform placed Israel on the dole of U.S. taxpayers and consumers. “Under President Reagan, the U.S. Israel Free Trade Agreement was signed in 1985…Additionally, under President Reagan’s leadership, America’s foreign assistance to Israel matured into the form it currently takes today. No longer composed of loans and grants, Israel today receives all of its economic and military assistance from the United States in grants.” Reagan ultimately tasked Max Green of his Office of Public Affairs to craft a presidential message for AIPAC in his stead.

But why?
