Unconfirmed Sources report al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and his top lieutenant, Ayman al-Zawahiri, have filed charges against the National Republican party. The suit contends the GOP had not purchased the rights to the video footage and the verbal threats of Osama bin Laden are the copy righted property of al Qaeda.
The lawsuit names George W. Bush and Karl Rove as the primary legal targets. Osama Bin Laden is demanding the GOP halt the broadcast and pay al Qaeda unspecified legal damages.
The ad in question features al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and his top lieutenant, Ayman al-Zawahiri, speaking, but the only sound is a ticking clock in the background. The terror leaders’ quotes are posted on the screen and key phrases in the quotes stand alone as the rest of the quote fades out.
In a taped statement Ayman al-Zawahiri demanded the adds be pulled off the air until a legal settlement could be reached. According to al-Zawahiri, Osama Bin laden is not against using terroristic threats against the people of America but his disappointed that George W. Bush would resort to “stealing” the copy righted threats.
Al-Zawahiri went on to state that the Bush administration has shown great skill and expertise in using fear on their fellow citizens but again demanded the President use his own threats and not those belonging to al Qaeda. “I feel that Karl Rove and George W. Bush are capable terrorists they don’t need to steal the intellectual property of others to prove the point.”
