Bin Laden's Mentor Speaks Out

Hosted by

Osama bin Laden's latest message from hiding urges Pakistanis to rise up and kill President Pervez Musharraf. But Osama has received an open letter himself--from Salman al-Oadah, one of his Saudi mentors who has publicly rebuked bin Laden spreading a culture of bloodshed and mayhem in the name of Islam. Fawaz Gerges, chair of Middle Eastern Politics at Sarah Lawrence College, has just returned from a sabbatical in the Middle East where he was visiting professor at the American University in Cairo.
