A Letter To America [Uncensored]

Osama Bin Laden, the notorious mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks, remains a figure of infamy in modern history. His actions and ideologies continue to shape the world’s understanding of terrorism and international conflict. In the wake of those horrific events, circa 2002, Bin Laden penned a letter addressed to the American people, offering insights into his perspective on the global struggle for power and resources.

This uncensored letter from 2002, which we examine in this blog post, delves into his views on capitalism, foreign policy, and the ongoing conflicts in the Middle East. While Bin Laden’s words are divisive and steeped in extremist ideology, understanding his perspective can shed light on the complexities of global terrorism and the motivations behind acts of violence against the United States.

In the name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

To the American people,
Peace be upon those who follow the righteous track.

The subject of my talk to you is the overwhelming control of
capital (Var.: money) and its effect on the ongoing war between

I direct my talk specifically to those who support real change,
especially the youth.

I say from the onset:

Your former president warned you previously about the
devastating Jewish control of capital and about a day that would
come when it would enslave you; it has happened. Your current
president warns you now about the enormity of capital control
and it has a cycle whereby it devours humanity when it is devoid
of the precepts of God’s law (Shari’a). The tyranny of the
control of capital by large companies has harmed your economy,
as it did ours, and that was my motivation for this talk. Tens
of millions of you are below the poverty line, millions have
lost their homes, and millions have lost their jobs to mark the
highest average unemployment in 60 years. Your financial system
in its totality was about to collapse within 48 hours had not
the administration reverted to using taxpayer’s money to rescue
the vultures by using the assets of the victims. As for us, our
Iraq was invaded in response to pressure from capitalists with
greed for black gold, and you continue to support the oppressive
Israelis in their occupation of our Palestine in response to
pressures on your administration by a Jewish lobby backed by
enormous financial capabilities.

An observer of the policies of the new administration realizes
that the change is tactical and not strategic; it does not at
all agree with the change you seek. There are very many
indicators of this, especially concerning important matters
related to your security and economy, particularly the ongoing
war between us. The previous administration was successful in
implicating you in these wars against us under the premise that
they are necessary for your security or according to the promise
that it would be short and would finish in six days or six
weeks. Six years has passed, and that administration is gone
without realizing the victory. The man calling for change
promised you victory in Afghanistan and set a time for
withdrawal. Before the end of the set time, Petraeus, from the
previous administration, came and asked for an extension of six
more months. If it was

Page 2 – A Letter to America

the six-day war that started by President Bush, and six years
have not been enough to finish it, then the wise men should
question how long would a six-month war take and whether you are
able to fund a war that requires a large amount of money that
weakens your economy and your dollar.

For Obama to leave one-third of the soldiers in Iraq, and the
statements from his administration about this, especially from
Aderno, about the possibility of Obama’s ordering the return of
the forces he took out of Iraq, it would have been better for
him had he disagreed with the ethics of the previous
administration and adopted the truth as a friend and told you
that he will not withdraw from Iraq, which may not serve the US
interests but it is in the interest of the large corporations.

The course of the policies of the present administration in
several areas clearly reveals that whoever enters the White
House, even with good intentions to safeguard the peoples’
interest, is no more than a train operator. His only task is to
keep the train on the tracks that are laid down by the lobbyists
in New York and Washington to serve their interests first, even
if it is counter to your security and economy. Any president who
tries to move the train from the lobbyist’s tracks to a track
for the American people’s interests will confront very strong
opposition and pressures from the lobbyists. Your president
described the decision by the court in favor of corporations to
intervene in the political arena as a victory, but it is not [a
victory] for the American people except for the big

There is no doubt about it that it is a right, and
it is also a right for the administration to support the
oppressive Israelis for the continued occupation of our land and
the killing of our brothers, marking a victory for the Jewish
lobby. The president was not able to defend you against the
security and economic loss. The way for change and freeing
yourselves from the pressure of lobbyists is not through the
Republican or the Democratic parties, but through undertaking a
great revolution for freedom: not to free Iraq from Saddam
Hussein but to free the White House and to free Barack Husayn so
he can implement the change you seek. It does not only include
improvement of your economic situation and ensure your security,
but more importantly, helps him in making a rational decision to
save humanity from the harmful [greenhouse] gases that threaten
its destiny.

For the American youth to succeed in this change, they need to
relive the history of their ancestors and the conditions in
their country more than two centuries ago. They need to
understand the similarities during that era and their present
situation, especially in their fundamental conditions. The
British Parliament sided with corporations, then against the

Page 3 – A Letter to America

of the citizens. You have noticed the Congress’s stand with
corporations against the peoples’ interests when they refused to
legislate against interference in the elections by corporations.
The British military governor in the United States used to have
the right to appoint judges and mayors. Similarly, the
corruption is deep rooted now in all higher authorities, thus
giving authorities over these offices to corporations.

Subsequently, the higher court adjudicated their support of
political financing by corporations under such circumstances.
Reading the book by the intellectual Thomas Paine helped your
fathers in the revolution against the oppressors. It is useful
for you to read it under the current, similar circumstances. You
are in need of people like Thomas Paine to publish books
pointing out the similarities between the two phases and that
will have a similar effect. You also are in need of men with
courage and initiative like those of your forefathers at that
time when they refused to allow one company to harm the
interests of the United States, a company that had a monopoly on
tea and its prices. Yet there now are many companies that
endanger the United States’ economy, which continues to be
vulnerable to collapse and they also formulate the policies of
the White House. They threw hundreds of thousands of soldiers
against us and have formed an alliance with the Israelis to
oppress us and occupy our land; that was the reason for our
response on the eleventh.

Palestine has been under occupation for decades, and none of
your presidents talked about it until after September 11 when
Bush realized that your oppression and the tyranny against us
were part of the reason for the attack. Then he talked about the
necessity for two states. Obama is trying to address the issue
with the same solutions suggested by his predecessor; they are
quilting fruitless solutions not of concern to us. If you want a
real settlement that guarantees your security in your country
and safeguards your economy from being depleted in a manner
similar to our war of attrition against the Soviet Union, then
you have to implement a roadmap that returns the Palestine land
to us, all of it, from the sea to the river, it is an Islamic
land not subject to being traded or granted to any party.

In conclusion: Be assured that we do not fight for mere killing
but to stop the killing of our people. It is a sin to kill a
person without proper, justifiable cause, but terminating his
killer is a right. You should be aware that justice is the
strongest army and security offers the best livelihood; you lost
it by your own making when you supported the Israelis in
occupying our land and killing our brothers in Palestine. The
road to safety starts with the stopping of aggression.

Palestine shall not be seen captive for we will try to break its

The United States shall pay for its arrogance with the blood of
Christians and their funds.

Peace be upon those who follow the righteous track.
