Transcript of Osama bin Laden videotape

Page 7 , Excerpts

OBL: They were overjoyed when the first plane hit the building, so I said to them: be patient.

OBL: The difference between the first and the second plane hitting the towers was twenty minutes. And the difference between the first plane and the plane that hit the Pentagon was one hour.

Shaykh: They (the Americans) were terrified thinking there was a coup.

Note: Ayman Al-Zawahri says first he commended OBL's awareness of what the media is saying. Then he says it was the first time for them (Americans) to feel danger coming at them.

OBL (reciting a poem):

I witness that against the sharp blade

They always faced difficulties and stood together...

When the darkness comes upon us and we are bit by a

Sharp tooth, I say...

"Our homes are flooded with blood and the tyrant

Is freely wandering in our homes"...

And from the battlefield vanished

The brightness of swords and the horses...

And over weeping sounds now

We hear the beats of drums and rhythm

They are storming his forts

And shouting: "We will not stop our raids

Until you free our lands"...
