Welcome Back ’sama

Hey, Osama bin Laden is back! With the whole issuing of the new audiotapes and all that! Just in time to head off the odd critic here and there in America's more conservative papers who suggested he might dead because of the lapse in communiques from New Caveford (a tonier suburb of Dankrockington where bin Laden resides). But, I guess that flattening a few Pakistani houses with a Sidewinder missile will irritate the big guy.

What's telling about bin Laden's new dealie is that his exact words are that heightened security measures aren't the reason for no attacks there since 9/11 - instead, the reason is "because there are operations that need preparations, and you will see them."

Is there a New Yorker who doesn't believe his rationale for the lack of attacks?
