"From Osama to Obama"

Bin Laden endorses Christmas-day bomber, promises new attacks

Osama bin Laden endorsed the failed bombing of the Detroit-bound U.S. airliner of Christmas Day, and threatened new attacks against the U.S. in a one-minute audio message released on Sunday, aired by Al Jazeera. However, U.S. officials and researchers say there is no reason to believe that bin Laden—or his top officials—were involved in or knew about the plot by a Yemen-based Al Qaeda faction. “America will never dream of security unless we will have it in reality in Palestine,” said bin Laden.
