So, Osama Bin Laden isn’t dead, and is in fact spending his time these days writing letters to the editor? Call me an untrusting cynic, but somehow I don’t buy a handwritten letter as proof-positive that he’s alive and well and planning the next great sucker-punch against the West .

“We congratulate the Islamic Nation on the bold heroic jihad operations that her children . the mujahedeen in Yemen against the crusader’s oil tanker and in Kuwait against the enemy troops and the American occupation,” bin Laden is quoted as saying in the statement.

After signing his name at the bottom of the letter, Bin Laden added, “P.S., please forgive my handwriting, I busted whichever hand it is I write with.”

Have you noticed how the medium that Bin Laden uses seems to devolve further and further technologically with each new communique? First it was video tapes, then just audio recordings, now hand-written letters. Expect smoke signals in the near future.
