Osama bin Laden on 9/11

"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...

The United States should try to trace the perpetrators of these attacks within itself; the people who are a part of the U.S. system, but are dissenting against it. Or those who are working for some other system; persons who want to make the present century as a century of conflict between Islam and Christianity so that their own civilization, nation, country, or ideology could survive. They can be anyone, from Russia to Israel and from India to Serbia...

What is this? Is it not that there exists a government within the government in the United Sates? That secret government must be asked as to who carried out the attacks...

The Western media is unleashing such a baseless propaganda, which makes us surprise but it reflects on what is in their hearts and gradually they themselves become captive of this propaganda. They become afraid of it and begin to cause harm to themselves. Terror is the most dreaded weapon in modern age and the Western media is mercilessly using it against its own people. It can add fear and helplessness in the psyche of the people of Europe and the United States. It means that what the enemies of the United States cannot do, its media is doing that. You can understand as to what will be the performance of the nation in a war, which suffers from fear and helplessness."

- Osama bin Laden, 17 days after the 9/11 attacks

Note that OBL likely met with the CIA in July of '01, just two months before the attacks. Creepy. Even creepier is what in the world would later convince OBL that it was in his/his family's/his country's/his religion's interests to later take responsibility for the attacks?!?
