Bin Laden admits defeat in Iraq

The information is here, in the article - but not the headline, which reads

Bin Laden Issues Warning on Iraq, Israel

When you read the article though, you will find:

a. - A good picture of Bin Laden

b. - "warned Iraq's Sunni Arabs against fighting al-Qaida" HUH? we thought that there were no Al quada in Iraq? And now Bin Laden has to warn Iraqis not to fight them? What??

c. - "attempt to keep supporters in Iraq unified at a time when the U.S. military claims to have al-Qaida's Iraq branch on the run." The us military always "claims" stuff. But Bin Laden "Aims to unify" Benefit of doubt=AQ, by ABC. The press is the enemy.

d. - " In Iraq, a number of Sunni Arab tribes in western Anbar province have formed a coalition fighting al-Qaida-linked insurgents" A stunning development indeed. Did it happen before, or after the war was lost by Sen. Harry Reid (D)? And on what frontpage was this reported? Does it not beg a willing suspension of disbelief?

e. - "Bin Laden said Sunni Arabs who have joined the Awakening Councils "have betrayed the nation and brought disgrace and shame to their people. They will suffer in life and in the afterlife." Oh please ABC, tell us more, verbatim, please! In fact - please link us to the whole transcript, so we can decide for ourselves. No? Well, thank you for your effort in clarifying Bin Laden's word for us.
