“It never occurred to us that the commander-in-chief of the American armed forces would leave 50,000 of his citizens in the two towers to face these horrors alone,” he said, referring to the number of people who worked at the World Trade Center.

None of this surprises me. Osama is not stupid and is very specific in the messages he sends. They all have a design and purpose.

As for my own interpretation, here is what he hopes to achieve with this note:
1) He wants to be a modern Saladin to Muslims and will use this as a recruitment video.
2) He wants to taunt Bush.
3) He is trying to instill fear and terror in America.
None of those are profound, but I would be remiss if I didn’t mention them.
