It has to be Rove

Posted by Richard on September 9, 2007

Frank J. provided the definitive Osama tape analysis — short, to the point, and spot on:

We all know Rove is behind the newest Osama video, right? I mean there's no way Osama released a video on his own imitating every single left-wing talking point; that's just too perfect for us. He did everything but end his tirade with, "In conclusion, murderous terrorists and liberals are pretty much ideologically the same. Once again, if you take anything away from my speech, it should be that terrorists and liberals are almost exactly the same thing."

This is just too perfect for us; it has to be Rove.

BTW, I think it's funny how the liberals are acting like all we right wing bloggers conspired together to use the talking point that Osama sounds like a left-wing blogger. Did they ever consider that the reasons we all said he sounds exactly like a left-wing blogger is because he sounds exactly like a left-wing blogger? If in his video he had said, "Hey! Hey! Hey!" in a deep voice, we'd all be saying he sounded like Fat Albert. Instead, he said, "Democrats need to get America our of Iraq now and you need to read Chomsky and worry about global warming," so we're all saying he sounds like a liberal blogger. Occam's razor.

All I can add is I really like Occam's razor.

    New Osama video seems yet another forgery. Everyone needs Osama alive:

    terrorists as symbolic leader and the US Administration – to avoid

    scaling down the war on terror.

    Obadiah Shoher rightly notes ( ) that

    new Osama talks like a leftist university professor. I like Shoher’s

    analysis. No way a terrorist leader like Osama would use a speechwriter. Osama is famous

    for his rhetoric.

    Also, in the tape Osama both threatens America with attack (by

    “proving” Americans polytheists) and offers (yet another time)

    long-term coaching in Islam.

    But his dyed beard makes me cautious. Islam’s mujahedeen dye their

    beards before battle.

    I’m not impressed by Shoher’s analysis, but here’s the link as a live link (the Help tab in the Post Comment box has instructions for formatting and links):

    “Silly war in Iraq,” my ass. And his criticism of Osama’s absurd lies about the Jews and WWII is much too restrained — or perhaps ignorant of the Nazi roots of the Muslim Brotherhood from which al Qaeda sprung?

    It’s possible that Osama is dead and this is a double. I wouldn’t want to bet either way. But I believe Zawahiri has always been the brains of the organization, so I believe it matters only from a public relations perspective.

    I’m familiar with the practice of beard dyeing before going to war, which I believe stems from a Hadith (in which Mohammed forbade hair coloring for any other purpose). The idea was to intimidate the enemy by making them believe all the fighters against them were young men.

    Thanks for stopping by!
