Marlena: Or, as I read, he put that part in to show the other folk in other countries
that he is not so bad after all.

Eric: The NYT agrees, adding it is also an attempt to distance himself from Zarquawi, and that the odious varmint's "voice, this time, sounded somewhat more labored, lacking the energetic quality typical of earlier recordings. There was also a pronounced echo as if he had been inside a room, in contrast to previous recordings that seemed to have been made outdoors or in large spaces."

Still others argue that the audio-only message may mean Bin Laden has had plastic surgery, and now resembles Carrot Top.
