Don`t execute 9/11 mastermind: Osama to US
Dubai: World`s most wanted terrorist, Osama
bin Laden on Thursday warned that al-Qaeda will kill American
soldiers if the self-confessed mastermind of the 9/11 attacks
Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is executed.
"The day America will take such decision [to execute
Khalid Mohamed and any others] it would have taken a decision
to execute whoever we capture," Bin Laden said in the latest
audio record, broadcast on Al-Jazeera.
He also said that US president Barack Obama was
"following the footsteps of his predecessor", a reference to
George Bush, the former US president.
"The politicians in the White House were practicing
injustice against us and still they are. Especially by
supporting Israel in its continuous occupation of Palestine.
"They used to think that America across the oceans is
protected from the rage of the oppressed until our reaction
was loudly heard at your home on the 9/11 with God?s help," he
said in the recording.
Osama`s threat comes as Obama administration has
announced it would try Khalid Mohammed and four other accused
at a New York courthouse just steps from where the World Trade
Centre once stood.
Sheikh Mohammed and the other accused are detained at
Guantanamo as they await trial over the September 11, 2001
attacks that killed close to 3,000 people, most in New York.
Osama bin Laden`s last audio recording was released on
January 24, earlier this year in which he claimed
responsibility for alleged attempted attack on an airliner on
Christmas Day and vowed there would be further attacks on the
US unless Obama took steps to resolves the Palestinian
