Every election in the last century Osama bin Laden issued a tape which helped the republicans win. A month or so back, he released a tape which seemed to help Obama. Clearly bin Laden wants to keep America engaged in Iraq and Afghanistan. As Barak Obama has obligingly kept the US engaged in Iraq and Afghanistan, it is clear why Al Queada would try to support the democrats the same way that for 8 years they supported the republicans. Still, why did the British lie about their being no bomb? Or has Obama lied about there being a bomb? I guess the Brits are not as attuned to the US election cycle as Al Queada is.
