(CNN) — A new audiotaped message purported to be from al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden warned Americans that plans for attacks in the United States were already under way.
“We have seen explosions in many European countries. As for similar operations taking place in America, it’s only a question of time. They are under way, and you will hear about them soon,” said the message, which was aired on Arabic-language network Al-Jazeera Thursday.
CNN could not immediately confirm that the voice in the poor-quality audiotape was that of bin Laden.”
It is in the interest of AQ and company to do whatever they can to upset, irritate and disrupt us as often as they can. I wouldn’t be surprised to find out that this is fake or a hoax. All that being said it is still incumbent upon us to remain vigilant and to do what we can not to allow them to create chaos and mistrust.
