Bin Laden Audio Recording "Puzzling"; New York Ranger Found Dead
- An unreleased audio message from Osama Bin Laden recorded just before his death has been described as "puzzling" and "a head scratcher" by an official. In the recording, Bin Laden talks about the revolutions in Egypt and Tunisia, but not Libya, Yemen, or Syria. It's confusing that Bin Laden would suddenly throw his hat into the ring months late on the Arab uprisings and leave out most of the countries involved, and also that he wouldn't mention his support for the movement trying to take down Muammar Qaddafi, who he hated.
