The Bin Laden Audiotape

American VoicesWorldterrortvmedia ISSUE 38•43 Nov 20, 2002

Last week, al-Jazeera aired an audiotape purportedly of Osama bin Laden praising the Sept. 11 attacks. What do you think about the possibility that bin Laden is alive?

  • “I have my suspicions that this tape is older than al-Jazeera claims, mostly because of the way bin Laden peppers his speech with 'fer sure' and 'tubular.'”

  • “Hell, that could be anyone's voice. Even I can do bin Laden... 'Oh, yes, I very much like to blow up the buildings, sir.' No, you sound Indian.”

  • “Bin Laden... alive? It's a Christmastime miracle!”

  • “You mean our bombing the crap out of Afghanistan and threatening war with Iraq hasn't softened his anti-American stance? That can't be right.”

  • “Hey, I'm way ahead of you. I know this place down on Canal Street that had bootleg copies of the tape a week before al-Jazeera.”

  • “I don't know which is more terrifying—that bin Laden is still alive or that al-Qaeda may be in cahoots with Rich 'Man Of A Thousand Voices' Little.”
