ABBOTTABAD, Pakistan — When a woman involved in a polio vaccine drive turned up at Osama bin Laden's hideaway, she remarked to the men behind the high walls about the expensive SUVs parked inside.American Thinker Blog: Osama Bin Laden and his tourist hideaway
Hmmm...so bin Laden was not exactly living rough in some cave in Waziristan in solidarity with his followers attacking the Great Satan in Afghanistan. Rather, he was living in a commodious and well-fortified compound in a tourist town -- sort of Pakistan's equivalent of having a mansion in the Hamptons. No cra*ping behind rocks for him. I guess that is for the "little people" in his fight.Flashback: Osama Bin Laden, Global Warming Activist
What does it say that when one scratches Lefties, one finds them living large? Bill Ayers lives in the private enclave of Hyde Park, presumably with a nice assist from daddy's money which certainly supported him during his bombing days. As students of history know, the ur-Lefty, the Frenchman Jean Jacques Rousseau, sent his children to orphanages as they arrived and lived well off a succession of rich wives. Karl Marx was able to find the time to ruminate in the British Library because he was supported by Friedrich Engels, heir to an industrial fortune.
Ravi Somaiya — Bin Laden, if he wasn't living in a cave, would apparently drive a Prius. In a new audio message he lays into the US for causing global warming, and singles out George W. Bush for not ratifying the Kyoto treaty.
"All industrial nations, mainly the big ones, are responsible for the crisis of global warming," he says in the tape, which has not been verified but is thought to be Bin Laden, according to the BBC. "This is a message to the whole world about those who are causing climate change, whether deliberately or not, and what we should do about that." He added that "Bush the son, and the [US] Congress before him, rejected this agreement [the Kyoto protocol] only to satisfy the big companies."
