Bin Laden makes hollow threat onver KSM trial

BBC:

A message said to be from Osama Bin Laden threatens to kill Americans if the alleged mastermind of the 9/11 attacks is executed by the US.

Al-Jazeera news channel broadcast an audiotape reportedly from the al-Qaeda leader talking about Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other suspects.

The tape said that if the US made the decision to execute, al-Qaeda would also "execute" anyone it captured.

...

The taped message said: "The White House has declared its wish to execute (Mr Mohammed and the other suspects). The day the United States takes such a decision, it would be also taking the decision that any of you falling into our hands will be executed."

...

Isn't that what al Qaeda already does. Don't they like to have videos of their grisly executions? In fact didn't KSM kill a Wall Street Journal reporter by beheading him on video. That reporter has killed no one, but KSM has engaged in mass murder of Americans already.

The threat is therefore meaningless. But here is a question for Osama bin Laden. Weill you read your captives their Miranda rights before you behead them?
