Osama bin Laden is only an instrument in arms of Al-Queda’s real leaders, whose names are unknown, internal minister of Saudi Arabia, prince Nayef said in his interview to New York Times.
According to him, the arrest or murder of the Saudi terrorist will not seriously damage this organization. “Osama bin Laden is at the top of the pyramid only from mass media’s view, so his arrest would not have prevented the September terrorist acts in the US,” – the prince said. Prince Nayef, brother of King Fahd and Crown Prince Abdullah, is supposed to be one of the most influential politicians in Saudi Arabia.
Meanwhile, Vice-President Dick Cheney confirmed that video footage really does exist in which bin Laden speaks about the September 11 terrorist acts. According to Cheney, these records were found in Jelalabad. After watching them, a conclusion can be made that bin Laden knew much about the 11 September events. Other US officials, who anonymously talked to journalists, reported that bin Laden’s narration was recorded about his impressions of that September's news programs. After the first plane flew into the WTC building, bin Laden, according to the US politicians, said to his supporters that was not the terrorist action’s end.
The cassette was found in bin Laden’s personal apartment in Jelalabad. US authorities hope that if this record is published, this could convince the Muslim world from the terrorist’s guilt.
While agreeing with the prince’s position that bin Laden is only an instrument in someone’s arms, one could conclude his real owner is Satan himself.
