Osama wants Bush for president

Why else would he have popped out of his cave so shortly before the election, knowing that terrorism is the one issue that drives voters to Bush instead of Kerry?

    Your guess is as good as anybody else’s…

    Would he have done it if he had expected it to make life more difficult for him?

    Maybe he doesn’t care who wins?
    Maybe he simply chooses political prime-time to get his video-message out?

    He would have had prime time coverage anyway, he is Osama Bin Laden. And he is a tremendous political strategist who knows how propaganda works, and who knows very well how much the Iraq war has helped to promote his cause in the muslim world. So he has every reason to opt for four more years, and to do whatever lies in his power to achieve the desired result.
