Osama Recommends U.S. Leftist's Book

In an Arabic transcription of the entire tape on the Al-Jazeera Web site — but not aired — bin Laden ... tells Americans that "if you are sincere in your desire for peace and security, and if Bush refuses to do anything but continue lies and oppression," then he recommends Americans read a book entitled "The Rogue State," apparently a reference to a book of that title by political analyst William Blum. The book has been published in Arabic.

"In its introduction, it states: 'If I were president, I would stop the attacks on the United States: First I would give an apology to all the widows and orphans and those who were tortured. Then I would announce that American interference in the nations of the world has ended,'" he said.

Re: Blum's Book, "Killing Hope: US Military and CIA Interventions Since World War II"

"Far and away the best book on the topic." -- Noam Chomsky

"I enjoyed it immensely." -- Gore Vidal

"I bought several more copies to circulate to friends with the hope of shedding new light and understanding on their political outlooks." -- Oliver Stone

From some of the reviews:

"Don't make the mistake I did of repeating everything you read in this book in political debates, because you might end up being laughed at."

"After reading this book, and checking the facts extensively, I have to say this book is, from a factual standpoint, total garbage. I bought it because I am always open to diverse ideas, but I can't beleive people take this guy seriously!"

"I am not sure of the author's motivation for this book but it reaks of personal vendetta (a disgruntled foreign service worker who was forced to leave). On one page he will criticize the U.S. involvement in one action and on the next criticize the U.S. for not getting involved. He offers no paradigm that would determine the moral grounds for executing any foreign policy. Finally the pieces come crashing down in chapter 27 where he criticizes with (little documentation) U.S. oppression through private groups (p. 260), civic and religious groups (p. 262), the election process for not offering viable candidates (p. 267), and hospitals (p. 269). Somehow, he believes that an out of control government can maintain complete control over these processes. I suppose this makes everyone but himself and a few cronies part of the problem."

"After reading this book I feel like the character 'Neo' from the film Matrix waking up the first time from his slumber." (from a Muslim reviewer)

Yep, this book sounds like a real winner.

Looking at the text of the book, on Amazon, I can't find anything like the quote that Osama has. Anyone track that down?
