Four days before the US election, a videotape is released of a recent speech by Osama Bin Laden, attacking America and attacking George W Bush. Ask yourself these questions:
- Is the videotape likely to have any effect on the result of the US election? If so, what effect is it likely to have?
- Is the videotape intended to have an effect on the US election? If so, what effect is it intended to have?
- If Bin Laden wanted to ensure Bush's reelection, how would he go about it? If he preferred Kerry, what would he do?
