    Default bin Laden says he'll never be taken alive

    CAIRO, Egypt Feb 20, 2006 (AP) Osama bin Laden vowed never to be captured alive and said the U.S. military had become as "barbaric" as Saddam Hussein in an audiotape reposted on a militant Islamic Web site after first being broadcast last month.

    In the tape posted to the Web site Monday, bin Laden offered the United States a long-term truce but also said his al-Qaida terror network would soon launch a fresh attack on American soil. The tape was initially broadcast Jan. 19 on Al-Jazeera, the pan-Arab satellite channel.

    Islamic militant Web forums often repost messages from al-Qaida leaders to ensure sympathizers can see them. U.S. intelligence officials confirmed that last month's tape was of bin Laden making it his first message in more than a year.

    "I have sworn to only live free. Even if I find bitter the taste of death, I don't want to die humiliated or deceived," bin Laden said, in the 11-minute, 26-second tape.

    In drawing the comparison to American military behavior in Iraq to that of Saddam, he said:

    "The jihad (holy war) is ongoing, thank God, despite all the oppressive measures adopted by the U.S. Army and its agents (which has reached) a point where there is no difference between this criminality and Saddam's criminality."

    Bin Laden also denied Bush administration assertions that it was better to fight terrorists in Iraq than on U.S. soil.

    "The reality shows that the war against America and its allies has not been limited to Iraq as he (Bush) claims. Iraq has become a point of attraction and restorer of (our) energies," he said.

    The last audiotape purported to be from bin Laden was broadcast in December 2004 by Al-Jazeera. In that recording, he endorsed Abu-Musab al-Zarqawi as his deputy in Iraq and called for a boycott of Iraqi elections.


    Associated Press reporter Omar Sinan contributed to this report.
    Do you get the feeling this guy is working for Bush? As soon as he says there will be another attack on US soil, it helps validate Bush's nuttiness. Christ, I see an approval rating rise even as I write this.

    They would only need bin Laden for a show trial, and they already
    have Saddam's trial for that.

    And the Bush family has long had dealings with the bin Ladens --
    all 52 of them -- that are only mildly reported in the press.

    Of course he'll never be taken alive... he has to be kept on the lam (as much as fictional characters can be on the lam) so the US populace has something to quake in their boots about.
    I am from the American CIA and I have a radio in my head. I am going to kill you.
