Hudna thought it?

[source, source, source]

Al-Jazeera aired an audiotape purportedly from Osama bin Laden on Thursday, saying al-Qaida is making preparations for attacks in the United States but offering a truce to rebuild Iraq and Afghanistan.

Some seem to think this means let’s fight in your house, not mine but I agree with the assessment that if Al Qaeda actually did have any attacks in a likely to succeed state, they wouldn’ t be releasing audio tapes about it. Far more likely is that this is a hudna, a truce with the purpose of regrouping for a later attack.

Best Comment:

Interestingly enough, there’s almost no substantive difference between the Osama bin Laden truce offer and the John Murtha withdrawal plan. Wonder if the MSM will notice?

But I'm sure they'd clear with the UN Security Council first

France said on Thursday it would be ready to use nuclear weapons against any state that carried out a terrorist attack against it, reaffirming the need for its nuclear deterrent.

I’m waiting for the outrage from the usual suspects about jingoism and bellicosity…still waiting…
