Osama bin Laden: Glory Hound

This week Al Qaeda CEO, Osama bin Laden, took credit for the Christmas Day ass-bombing attempt on a Detroit-bound jet. While a Yemen branch of Al Qaeda is responsible for the attack, the fact is that bin Laden probably had no idea that the attack was going to happen. It would be like John Madden taking credit for Jamarcus Russel , which is a whole other kind of terrorist strike, but that will be dealt with in another blog at a later date. Bin Laden has a history of taking credit for stuff his people had little or nothing to do with, the best example is the shoot down of the two US Army Blackhawks in Somalia back in 1993. He would have you believe that after Al Qaeda training the Somali militia skillfully brought those birds down. The fact is that if you talk to the 160th SOAR pilots who were in the air that day they will tell you that sky was lousy with RPGs. So the odds of being hit were good, but most RPGs missed and fell back into the city (probably killing someone on the ground). However, since the October 3rd, 1993 raid has become immortalized in the book and movie "Black Hawk Down" bin Laden has been happy to ape the event and sling it under the Al Qaeda "WIN" column.

What a douche bag.

Here are some suggestions for bin Laden to take credit for in future communications:

  1. Windows Vista
  2. "Jersey Shore"
  3. The Jay Leno/Conan O'Brien fiasco
  4. Obamacare
  5. John & Kate Plus 8
  6. Carbon Credits
  7. France
  8. The Zune
  9. The Nissan Cube
  10. Adam Lambert

I could go on but this list should be enough to ensure Al Qaeda's place at an international trial for crimes against humanity.

Alah Akbar...
