Bin Laden's Truce Offer

It's hard to understand why some are interpreting Osama Bin Laden's speech as encouragement to his followers. It seems clear that the speech is intended for the American audience. His message to us is that America is losing and that if we want to be safe from attack, all we need do is withdraw from Iraq and Afghanistan. It's his attempt to feed the "if we leave them alone they'll leave us alone" strain of American thinking on terrorism.

It will be interesting to see if it gains traction.
