Osama Bin Readin! (Terrorist Endorses Texts by Carter, Walt and Mearsheimer)
Some writers get all the luck!
How unfair is this? Osama Bin Laden (or someone who pretends to be him) has endorsed Jimmy Carter's Palestine Peace Not Apartheid and The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy by John J. Mearsheimer and Stephen M. Walt.
According to an entry in the New York Times' blog Bin Laden (or some fascimile thereof) recently issued a tape in which he exhorts his listeners to read the texts mentioned above along with a few other books, stating: “After you read the suggested books, you will know the truth, and you will be greatly shocked by the scale of concealment that has been exercised on you.”
Speaking of concealment, where you been hidin', Mr. Bin Laden? Did you order these texts through Amazon Prime or through your Kindle? Does Amazon charge extra for shipping to an undisclosed location?
Fortunately, Bin Laden didn't restrict his praise to literary giants, but also encouraged his listeners to read a lesser-known text entitled “The Apology of a Hired Killer,” which apparently is a reference to a text titled Confessions of an Economic Hitman by John Perkins.
