‘Dye, infidels!’

Between his previous straight-to-video release and his latest, Osama bin Laden has turned into Blackbeard.

Conspiracy and incitement to mass murder is one thing, but vanity? Dear oh dear; Islamic fundamentalism just isn’t what it used to be.

(And I’m afraid anyone wanting to understand the root causes of terrorism is going to have to wait a little while until those roots start showing.)

I didn't know you could get 'Just For Men' in rural Afghanistan.

Obviously the arrival of western-style capitalism has had some benefits for Al-Qaeda.
