You Just
Love Your

Al Jazeera is running a videoclip of Osama Bin Laden meeting with the 9/11 highjiackers:

The Arab television channel Al-Jazeera broadcast a video which it said showed Osama bin Laden and suicide candidates of Al-Qaeda preparing the September 11, 2001 attacks against the United States. Al-Jazeera had said earlier it would broadcast "a video that included scenes showing for the first time Al-Qaeda leaders preparing the September 11 attacks and practicing for their execution."

The video showed Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and two of the 19 Islamist militants that took part in the attacks, Saudi nationals Hamza el-Ramdi and Wael el-Shemari.

They spoke of the situation faced by Muslims in Bosnia and Chechnya.

Fifteen of the 19 attackers on September 11 were Saudis, and Al-Jazeera said it had only aired a few minutes of a document which it said lasted about an hour and a half.

Man, you just gotta love your enemies when they tell you the truth.

Now see, here, the fact that this video shows Bin Laden working with the highjackers means that all the lunatics with the conspiracy theories are going to have to amend their theories to fit this new reality.

Of course, in the past we had seen a video in which Bin Laden bragged of the plan, but this is the first direct evidence tying him to it.

So now, Bin Laden had to have been working with Bush or this plan could have never gone through, right?

Smirk. Smirk.

I can't wait to watch the conspiracy theory crowd work on this one. Of course, I don't expect it to bring them around anywhere close to reality. In fact, the charming thing about conspiracy theorists is the more reality intrudes, the further out they have to go to explain their stupid ideas.

I expect they may have to start working the Pluto angle into their theories soon. You know, like, "Why did Bushitler recently de-list Pluto as a planet if not because that's where he's hiding the evidence of his meetings with Bin Laden?
