Bin Laden admits to problems in Iraq

From Bill Roggio over at The Long War Journal is "The darkness has become pitch black" - Osama bin Laden on Iraq situation
  • Recent report from US commanders in Iraq have stated al Qaeda in Iraq has been set back by a combination of the latest offensive and the willingness of local Iraqis to turn on the terror group. Based Osama bin Laden's latest audiotape, al Qaeda central command agrees that the fight against the US and the Iraqi government is not going well.

Good read, as always with Bill's stuff. I'd add that Bin Laden sees a problem with recruitment and so feels the need to make a recruiting push, hence the tape.
