Bin Laden expressed his support for the protests in the Middle East in their last recording

Washington .- The last audio message recorded by Osama bin Laden, found in a raid on his home in Pakistan, shows his support for the popular protests that have traveled the Middle East, said on Saturday a U.S. official told CNN. In the posthumous recording, the leader of Al Qaeda speaks of popular protests in Egypt and Tunisia, but does not mention the riots in Libya, Syria and Yemen, although, according to authorities, the message came at the end of April.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, described as "puzzling" that the terrorist "suddenly climbed on the bandwagon of popular protest" months after it began in February, and only mentioned some of the countries concerned. The omission of any mention of the uprising against Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, who publicly despised Bin Laden is an "enigma," said the source, who wonders why "no attempt to inspire" Al Qaeda in the Maghreb Islamic arm of the network in that region.

The support of Bin Laden to the riots in contrast to the idea expressed in recent months by the Government of Barack Obama, convinced that the success of the protests without resorting to violence represented a "unique blow" to Al Qaeda, in the words of U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates.

The last recording of bin Laden, who used to discuss current events and issue threats to Washington by video and audio messages, was found among the material seized by the U.S. military at his home in Abottabad (Pakistan). It is the second terrorist message that is broadcast after his death on 2 May as a few days later Shamikh1 Islamist website published a piece written by him, again threatening the U.S.

president. "I swear by Allah, who has raised the heavens without pillars that neither the United States or those living in the United States will dream of security before we live it in Palestine and before the departure of all the infidel armies from the territories of Mohammed, Bin Laden stated in the message.
