[quote=“fred smith”]I do not normally respond to posts by Cake. What would be the point? But just so others who may read this forum are clear as to the fact that Osama bin Laden IS on the list and the reasons for the “confusion” are rational and easy to understand…
[quote]Osama bin Laden
June 7, 1999 #456
Osama bin Laden is the leader of Al Qaeda, and is wanted in connection with the August 7, 1998, bombings of the United States embassies in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania, and Nairobi, Kenya. These attacks killed over 200 people. Osama and Al-Qaeda are also responsible for the October 12, 2000, attack on the USS Cole off the coast of Yemen, which killed 17. Although bin Laden also later appeared on the first publicly released FBI Most Wanted Terrorists list on Oct. 10, 2001, he was listed there for the 1998 embassy attack, and not for his alleged role in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks that killed nearly 3,000, because the most wanted lists name fugitives charged with a crime by a prosecutor or under indictment by a grand jury. Bin Laden was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in, for instance, the federal indictment against convicted terrorist Zacarias Moussaoui, but has not been formally indicted for his role in the September 11 attacks.
Bin Laden is the subject of a $25 million reward through the State Department’s Rewards for Justice program targeting international fugitives, especially terrorists, plus $2 million through a program developed and funded by the Air Line Pilots Association and the Air Transport Association.

Now, that this has been cleared up, I hope that we can see less about ignorant conspiracies from our earnest whack jobs…[/quote]
Nice try from the resident ‘crazy’ (nickname given to the current neo cons when they served under Reagan and daddy Bush, by the normal people who worked for the government).
Hilarious! I get called a whack job, whilst you want to nuke countries and turn them into parking lots. Who is the nutter there? What would make you different to some nutter wanting to blow up a subway train?
How come some of your cronies haven’t ripped you apart for quoting wikipedia?
Where is the ignorant conspiracy?
There is NO evidence Bin Laden was behind 9/11. I asked where the evidence is. Maybe the FBI hit a wall when they were told to back off investigating the bin laden family?
I knew he was on the list years ago (and not for 9/11) and I’ve made this point countless times. But you’ll never be convinced your ‘crazies’ can do any wrong. Maybe you could just blame it on Carter, you blame him for everything else.
They paste Bin ladens photos everywhere (usually with some fake audio recording) when they need to remind people about the war on some terror.
The whole Bin Laden thing is getting tired. Your ‘crazies’ need to invent a new Goldstein and blame him for everything from earthquakes to bird flu.
