Bin Laden: Eco-Warrior?

Throughout his "great campaign," Bin Laden has tried to coop many issues under his list of grievances to try to find further support for his cause. Most famously, he suddenly started caring about the Palestinians for the first time at some point in 2005 when he felt he needed more world support outside his usual base.

Now, I see this most recent tape similarly, although "eco-warrior" does seem a stretch for the giant Arab.
Al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden has called for the world to boycott American goods and the U.S. dollar, blaming the United States and other industrialized countries for global warming, according to a new audiotape released Friday.
