21. I am very suspicious about the timing of the Osama videotape release.
We don't even know WHEN it was made, nor WHO may have fed it to Al Jazeera. Even though it has been made to look like Bush is Al Jazeera's nemesis, that network is also located in Qatar, which is Bush friendly to the point that CENTCOM was even headquartered there.

Some say the video tape is hard on Bush and HURTS him but I fear the opposite effect of Osama's "endorsement". Why? Osama is a RED FLAG to most Americans. His image incites FEAR and hatred which benefits Mr. Bush who has been building his whole campagin on 9/11 and a main theme that Bush is the one to fight terrorism. It does not harm Bush for many to think that Osama is still his enemy. Plus, now that Americans are scared AGAIN, will they have the courage to "change horses in midstream?"

I fear this release on a LATE Friday was planned all along by Karl Rove. Why did the White House Kerry, for "unity" sake to muzzle himself while Bush ONLY was to speak about the tapes??? Every Osama videotape before this one was NOT released quickly, but kept sequestered several days for "analysis" by CIA/FBI to see if there might not be any "hidden messages" contained therein. This one was RUSHED to market! Also, why are all tapes from the Middle East so fuzzy? Even this one isn't as crisp as the ones I get from my own cheap video camera. After all, the whole world buys the same "Made in Japan" or "Made in China" video cameras.
