Genius: I think you've just shown, in the clearest possible way, that you did not bother to read the article.

Fisk continually shows himself to be a complete fool. Here he is alleging that some how bin Laden's messages are overlooked by Bush.

In this Gurdian artilce - http://www.guardian.co.uk/alqaida/story/0,12469,893898,00.html

we find the exact opposite. The Bush adminsitration had the bin Laden message Fisk talks of prior to it going to air on Al-Jazeera. Evidence of the exact opposite of what Fisk alleges.

And the message only confirms what most sensible people thought - that an alliance between Saddam and bin Laden was just a matter of time.

Fisk of course could not believe that bin Laden had anything to do with 9/11. So much for being an expert on the Middle East.

1- I/S: Actually I did - but I am not surprised you miss the parallel.

2- I note that the socialists that are his allies could be considered to exist in places other than iraq.

3 - I note the title is an interesting demonstration of how news is more marketing than news when fisk does it.
