"All that we have to do is to send two mujahedeen to the furthest point east to raise a piece of cloth on which is written al-Qaeda
, in order to make generals race there to cause America to suffer human, economic and political losses without their achieving anything of note other than some benefits for their private corporations
This is in addition to our having experience in using guerrilla war
fare and the war of attrition to fight tyrannical superpowers, as we, alongside the mujahidin, bled Russia
for 10 years, until it went bankrupt and was forced to withdraw in defeat. ...
So we are continuing this policy in bleeding America to the point of bankruptcy."
"I have already said that I am not involved in the 11 September attacks in the United States
. As a Muslim
, I try my best to avoid telling a lie. I had no knowledge of these attacks, nor do I consider the killing of innocent women
, and other humans as an appreciable act. Islam strictly forbids causing harm to innocent women, children
, and other people."
