    Yay, just what we need. :rolleyes:

    Bush will use these quotes whenever someone disagrees with the US invasion of Iraq.

    Actually, it shows how desperate he is. He says in the message that Allah instructs Muslims to not lie when entering treaties, but that itself is a lie, since Muslims are explicitly permitted to lie when entering treaties in order to buy time and gather strength to successfully attack in the future.

    That's too bad. Let's see...Bush's lies, Osama bin Laden's lies, Bush's lies, Osama bin Laden's lies…

    Bush definitely holds the lie record.

    When has Bin Laden lied, Sos? Could you specify, please?

    I've said before - you can always trust a terrorist...

    My comment was weighing one against the other, with the conclusion that bin Laden can be trusted more than Bush. So I agree with you on this point. However, Bush has also used fear to promote his agenda, and is responsible for more deaths than bin Laden, so some see him as a terrorist too.
