The most original argument in the book and the interview is Fadl’s assertion that the hijackers of 9/11 “betrayed the enemy,” because they had been given U.S. visas, which are a contract of protection. “The followers of bin Laden entered the United States with his knowledge, and on his orders double-crossed its population, killing and destroying,” Fadl continues. “The Prophet—God’s prayer and peace be upon him—said, ‘On the Day of Judgment, every double-crosser will have a banner up his anus proportionate to his treachery.’ ”
“The U.S. is making ‘a big and continual push’ to capture or kill al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden, but his demise won't end the organization's menace, CIA Director Michael Hayden said Tuesday in an Associated Press interview.
The CIA is equally interested in those jockeying to replace bin Laden in what he predicted will be a ‘succession crisis.’
‘It will be really interesting to see how that plays out. The organization is a lot more networked than it is ruthlessly hierarchical,’ Hayden said of the group behind the 9/11 attacks on the U.S. ‘How do you pick the next overall leader?’”
So why haven't we caught these guys yet?
Ensures that I'll run across it, in fact, during one of my periodic sweeps for the topic 'Anus'.
Any word on the orphans, widowers, and widows of the war against the country that wasn't involved in 9/11 (hint: it is Iraq)? You think they might be willing to take the place of dead terrorists?
