Part of the problem the usofa, uk criminals have had with
Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein is that both are
extremely 'quick studies' -- i.e. they have learned the "game"
/dubya's term for
what they do; NOT mine/.
May 7, 2004 (CBS/AP) A new audiotape with the purported
voice of Osama bin Laden offers rewards of gold for the killing of U.S. and United Nations officials from 10,000 grams for
top U.S. administrator L. Paul Bremer to at least 500 grams for citizens of U.N. Security Council nations. . . .
"You know that America promised big rewards for those who kill mujahedeen (holy warriors)," the speaker
said. "We in al Qaeda organization will guarantee, God willing, 10,000 grams of gold to whoever kills the occupier Bremer,
or the American chief commander or his deputy in Iraq." . . .
Terrorism expert Rohan Gunaratna
said the al Qaeda offer was unprecedented.
"In the past, al-Qaeda always said, 'Kill the Americans, kill the Westerners,'
but did not specifically name individuals," Gunaratna, who is head of terrorism research at the Institute of Defence and Strategic
Studies in Singapore, told the BBC.
The recording promised the same 10,000-gram reward for the deaths of U.N. Secretary-General
Kofi Annan and his envoy to Iraq, Lakhdar Brahimi.
"The United Nations is nothing but a Zionists' tool, even if it
worked under the cover of providing humanitarian aid," the voice said. "... Whoever kills
Kofi Annan or the head of his commission in Iraq or a representative like Lakhdar Brahimi, he will be awarded the same prize
of 10,000 grams of gold."
