Bin Laden Deputy: U.S. Losing AfghanistanBut we can guess can't we? This is like CBS News doing an impartial story about President Bush. No, it's like Axis Sally telling American troops that Hitler is winning the war.

CAIRO, Egypt - In a videotape made public ahead of the anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, Osama bin Laden's chief deputy claimed Thursday the United States was on the brink of defeat in Iraq and Afghanistan.
With an assault rifle leaning on the wall behind him, Ayman al-Zawahri said, "The defeat of America in Iraq and Afghanistan has become a matter of time, with God's help....The Americans in both countries are between two fires, if they continue they bleed to death and if they withdrew they loose [sic] everything."
The videotape was broadcast by Al-Jazeera television, which said it received the tape exclusively. It was not immediately clear how Al-Jazeera got the video....
Ayman al-Zawahri -- isn't he the guy who's on the run from U.S. and Pakistani forces? Talk about "loosers".
