BIN LADEN DENIES SEPT. 11 ATTACKS

In the interview with Dawn and Ausaf, a full transcript of which was read by MSNBC.com, bin Laden said the Sept. 11 attacks were justified.

“America and its allies are massacring us in Palestine, Chechnya, Kashmir and Iraq,” he said. “The Muslims have the right to attack America in reprisal. The Islamic Sharia [holy law] says Muslims should not live in the land of the infidel for long. The September 11 attacks were not targeted at women and children. The real targets were America’s icons of military and economic power.”

But Mir told NBC News that bin Laden specifically denied personal responsibility for the attacks, which are believed to have killed more than 4,000 people at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

Bin Laden, who has issued at least one fatwah, or religious edict, proclaiming that Muslims are obligated to kill all Americans, appeared to pull back slightly from that position in the newspapers.

The transcript shows bin Laden exclaiming “Yes!” when asked if it “could be said that you are against the American government, not the American people?”

“We are only defending ourselves. This is defensive jihad,” bin Laden said. “... This is a simple formula that even an American child can understand. This is the formula of live and let live.”

According to the transcript, Mir did not ask bin Laden about the apparent adjustment in his proclamation.
