Worth a Read

While our American friends are voting, it is worth a visit to Gulf News to read Amir Taheri on the OBL tape,
Finally and here is the most surprising theme of the message, Bin Laden is offering the Americans a deal. To cast himself as an honest deal-maker he takes up some of Michael Moore's themes, especially about President George W Bush not reacting to the 9/11 attacks fast enough.

The deal is simple, and Bin Laden hammers it in more specifically: "Do not play with our security, and spontaneously you will secure yourself."

What does this mean? Translated into practical terms it means that Bin Laden would call off his hounds, if he has any left, provided the US and its allies halt hunting him down.
