39. It never ceases to amuse (and amaze) me that people who
believe that 'Bush done it' somehow heard the initial denial and then mysteriously went deaf and blind for every other occasion on which he admitted responsibility for the attacks.

Let's start here... November 2001

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/afghanis...

<snip>

OSAMA BIN LADEN has for the first time admitted that his al-Qa'eda group carried out the attacks on the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon, the Telegraph can reveal.

In a previously undisclosed video which has been circulating for 14 days among his supporters, he confesses that "history should be a witness that we are terrorists. Yes, we kill their innocents".

<snip>

And then there is this tape captured in Afghanistan from December 2001...

And another bin Laden broadcast from 2004...

<snip>

Bin Laden said he thought of the method of attacking U.S. skyscrapers when he saw Israeli aircraft bombing tower blocks in Lebanon in 1982.

"We decided to destroy towers in America," he said. "God knows that it had not occurred to our mind to attack the towers, but after our patience ran out and we saw the injustice and inflexibility of the American-Israeli alliance toward our people in Palestine and Lebanon, this came to my mind."

<snip>

Then there were the suicide videos of the hijackers themselves...

http://www.cbc.ca/world/story/2007/09/11/binlade-tape.h...

<snip>

The video began with a still photo of bin Laden in front of a brown backdrop. A voiceover says: "This talk of mine consists of some reflections on the will of a young man who personally penetrated the most extreme degrees of danger and is a rarity among men: one of the 19 champions (may Allah have mercy on them all)."

Then, the videotape appears of Sept. 11 hijacker Walid al-Shehri, who was aboard American Airlines Flight 11 that hit the World Trade Center.

"We shall come at you from your front and back, your right and left," al-Shehri said in the tape, asserting that the United States would suffer the same fate as the Soviet Union.

I can do this all day long. You can play too... all you need is a Web browser and Google.

Now, I know for a fact that SLaD and WildBill, who spend as much time as anyone around here reading Dungeon posts, have seen all this data before. But given their pathalogical hatred of the BFEE and their ability to rearrange reality to suit their worldview, I expect that this post will have absolutely no effect on them.

But if anyone reading this has a shred of objectivity, you can research this yourself.
