(Newser) – Osama bin Laden's most recent rant slams Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari and Pakistani soldiers as "allies of Satan," and he calls on Paiistanis to join the Taliban and Al Qaeda forces fighting in the Swat Valley, reports the NY Daily News. Bid Laden blamed Barak Obama for the fighting in western Pakistan that has displaced more than 1 million people. The tape, distributed to jihadi web sites yesterday, is the 32nd since the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
