Osama bin Laden's latest tirade has us all confused

I was reading over the transcript of bin Laden's most recent statements, and I'll tell you what - they certainly gave rise to a lot of thoughts in my mind. But don't worry, I'll spare you from a deep, introspective post. However, I must ask you two questions:

1) Did bin Laden's comments strike you as eerily similar to those made by leading democrat? Though I don't believe the conclusion to reach here is that democrats are fueling terrorism, the similarities certainly were interesting.

2) What was up with this quote:

"If you (Americans) are sincere in your desire for peace and security, we have answered you. And if Bush decides to carry on with his lies and oppression, then it would be useful for you to read the book "Rogue State," which states in its introduction: "If I were president, I would stop the attacks on the United States: First I would give an apology to all the widows and orphans and those who were tortured. Then I would announce that American interference in the nations of the world has ended once and for all."

Very odd, in my opinion. I mean, did anyone else get this mental image?
Maybe it's just me.
