Saudi Ambassador comments on latest Bin Ladin tape
In response to a question about the latest Bin Ladin tape, HRH Prince Bandar bin Sultan bin Abdulaziz, the Kingdom's Ambassador to Washington made the following comment:

“The tape contains the usual rhetoric we have seen before from a deviant and cowardly criminal. Bin Ladin is deluding himself if he believes that his criminal acts are justified by any religion or principle of humanity. There is nothing that justifies terrorism and the murder of thousands of innocent people. These criminal acts have been condemned and rejected by all faiths, including Islam. Bin Ladin and those associated with him are criminals who must be brought to justice and severely punished."
