Bin Laden Admits to Directly 9/11 Attacks

"We decided to destroy towers in America." Will this end the stupid conspiracy theories? I doubt it, since the conspiracy theorists are mostly idiots.

On a serious note, we've seen two tapes in two days. There are so many questions. What is the significance of bin Laden's gold robe? Why did Al-Jazeera only air one minute of the five minute tape? I have to ponder all this. More later.

Update: Turns out the full tape is 18 minutes long. The NY Post reports that Al-Jazeer aired only 6 minutes but that on the unaired portions "bin Laden bemoans the recent democratic elections in Afghanistan and the lack of violence involved with it.

On the tape, bin Laden also says his terror organization has been hurt by the U.S. military's unrelenting manhunt for him and his cohorts on the Afghan-Pakistani border."

Now why on earth wouldn't Al-Jazeera broadcast the rest of the tape? More importantly, why does Al-Jazeera still exist?
