An audio recording that is believed to be of Osama bin Laden urges Muslims to defend Iraq and fight Israel and the United States, reports Samia Nakhoul of Reuters. Nakhoul also reports the speaker on the tape says, "The fighting should be in the name of God only, not in the name of national ideologies, nor to seek victory for the ignorant governments that rule all Arab states, including Iraq."
While this doesn't strengthen the argument that al Qaeda and Iraq are working together, it is important to keep in mind that strange bedfellows do happen. After all, Donald Rumsfeld has had some business dealings with communists.
