The wrath of Bin Laden

Vows Americans will die if Khaled Sheikh Mohammed sentenced to death

Osama bin Laden has warned that Americans would be killed in retaliation if a U.S. court sentences Khaled Sheikh Mohammed to death, according to an audio recording broadcast today by the al-Jazeera news channel. Mohammed, the self-confessed mastermind of the September 11th attacks, is expected to stand trial in a U.S. civilian court next year. The Obama administration has already indicated that the toughest sanction is likely to be imposed. The self-styled founder of the al-Qaeda movement added that U.S. politicians have “oppressed us and still do, especially by backing Israel, which occupies the land of Palestine.”
